    ROUTE TO THE SEMIS

    Juventus' route to the semi-final is not as dramatic as Inter's, who came from a goal down to beat fierce rivals AC Milan in the quarter-finals thanks to a 98th minute winner from Christian Eriksen.

    Andrea Pirlo's side meanwhile swept SPAL aside last time out, with goals from Alvaro Morata, Gianluca Frabrotta, Dejan Kulusevski and Federico Chiesa.

    SEMI-FINAL MEETINGS

    Inter and Juventus have met four times in the semi-finals of the Coppa Italia, in the 1937/38, 1982/83, 2003/04 and 2015/16 seasons.

    The Old Lady have reached the final on all four occasions.

    Antonio Conte will be hoping the Nerazzuri can put an end to that run tonight.

    MISSING ROM

    Inter's top scorer Romelu Lukaku is unavailable for Antonio Conte's side after his clash with former Manchester United team-mate Romelu Lukaku in the last round against AC Milan.

    Both men were booked after a clash of heads but have since been handed one match bans.

    Lukaku went on to score from the spot in the game, before Christian Eriksen netted the winner eight minutes into injury time.

    TEAM NEWS

    Achraf Hakim is suspended for Inter, so expect Matteo Darmian to take his place at the wing-back position.

    Paulo Dybala is still absent for Juventus while Danilo and Alex Sandro battle it out for a spot at left-back.

    Cristiano Ronaldo is likely to start, with Alvaro Morata up front alongside him.

    INSIDE THE DRESSING ROOM

    A look inside the home team dressing room at the San Siro ahead of kick off.

    There will be pressure on Lautaro Martinez to lead the Inter line in the absence of Romelu Lukaku.

    GOOD EVENING

    Welcome to our live coverage of Inter Milan against Juventus in the semi-final of the Coppa Italia. 

    Tonight’s Derby d’Italia at the San Siro is the first leg of the tie, with the second leg to be played a week today in Turin.

    Inter star man Romelu Lukaku is unavailable for tonight’s clash after picking up a one-match suspension for his altercation with Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the last round. 

    The two sides have met each other recently, with Inter running out 2-0 winners in the Serie A fixture just over two weeks ago. 

    That win was a statement victory for Antonio Conte’s side and their title credentials, as they try to stop Juve from winning a tenth consecutive Scudetto. 

    The Nerazzurri have not won the Coppa Italia since 2011, while Juve have won the tournament in four of the last six seasons, winning it every year from 2015-2018. 

    The Old Lady will come into the game full of confidence though, as that defeat to Inter earlier in the month is the only time Andrea Pirlo’s side have been beaten this calendar year.

    Kick off is at 7.45pm and team news will follow shortly.
