Juventus vs AC Milan Copa Italia Preview

January 09, 2013


Milan were beaten by the Bianconeri in the semi-final last term and may see this as an opportunity to continue their positive start to 2013.

Expect few changes for this quarter-final Coppa Italia clash between Juventus and AC Milan.

The Bianconeri will want to bounce back from their shock defeat to Sampdoria on Sunday, while the Rossoneri know the cup could provide a back door entry to the Europa League.

For the visitors, they will have Philippe Mexes available, which means makeshift centre-back Mattio De Sciglio will return to full-back.

Francesco Acerbi will continue his role in central defence while Kevin Constant may get the nod ahead of Ignazio Abate.

In midfield, Massimo Ambrosini or Antonio Nocerino may be rested for Urby Emanuelson, while Bojan, who scored against Siena, may be preferred to Giampaolo Pazzini.

For the hosts, Marco Storari is likely to get the nod in goal as he is usually the preferred goalkeeping choice in cup games.

Giorgio Chiellini is still absent for Antonio Conte's men which may mean either Federico Peluso continuing to fill the role in the back three, or alternatively, Martin Caceres could come into the side with Peluso more advanced at wing-back.

Claudio Marchisio's injury is not as bad as first feared but it seems that Paul Pogba may get the opportunity to showcase his talent.

Arturo Vidal, who missed Sunday's clash, is expected to return on Wednesday.
