The meeting of these two arch-enemy is becoming more interesting because they are also competing for the title. Both have just overtaken Napoli, after both only played a draw in the 27th week of the match.
This will be Derby della Madoninna 26th in the event Coppa Italia. Inter Milan are unbeaten in their last 5 away matches against AC Milan in all competitions (W3 D2 Draw).
Both teams will be very determined to win. What is at stake in this match is not only the chance of qualifying for the final, but also the issue of prestige and influence on the player’s confidence.
AC Milan coach Stefano Pioli stressed that a positive result would benefit his team ahead of the second leg.

After three consecutive eliminations in the last eight, Inter Milan qualify from the quarter-finals Coppa Italia in the last two editions, after eliminating AS Roma in the previous round.
However, a 2-0 win over the team made by AS Roma on February 9 was the last that La Beneamata got. Since then, Simone Inzaghi’s team has not won matches in four consecutive matches in all competitions, drawing two and losing two.
