AC Milan vs Internazionale Milano
Inter to lift the trophy- 4/5!
The Supercoppa Italiana has become a road show in the last two decades, with the match contested in Beijing, Tripoli, New York, Doha, Shanghai and other far-flung locations.
This year, as was the case in 2018 and 2019, the fixture is back in Saudi Arabia, with Milan’s big two traveling over travelling over 2,500 miles to Riyāḍh,
This is the second Supercoppa to feature a Derby della Madonnina, with A.C. Milan prevailing 2-1 at Beijing National Stadium back in 2011.
Who will claim silverware this time?
A.C. Milan are reigning Scudetto winners, and are currently two places and one point above their rivals in the Serie A table, sat second.
This is despite the fact Stefano Pioli’s side could only draw 2-2 with Lecce on Saturday.
Milan were actually 2-0 down at Stadio Via del mare, needing goals from Rafael Leão and Davide Calabria to salvage a draw.
Three days earlier, I Rossoneri were dumped out of the Coppa Italia by ten-man Torino, so are under pressure to claim their first Supercoppa in seven years.
Internazionale meanwhile hoisted aloft both the Supercoppa and Coppa Italia trophies in 2022, defeating Juventus in extra time both times.
I Nerazzurri beat Hellas Verona 1-0 on Saturday night, Lautaro Martínez the scorer, meaning they’ve taken 13 points from the last 15 available.
In all, Simone Inzaghi’s team have lost just one of their last ten Serie A matches, avoiding an upset at the hands of Parma last Tuesday in the Coppa.
So, Inter do travel to King Fahd International Stadium as slight-favourites, but will be wary, having lost 3-2 to A.C. Milan when the two last met in September.
Who will be Supercoppa winners in Saudi Arabia?
