The Juventus vs Milan match will be played on Wednesday, January 25th, 2017 at the Juventus Stadium. This is the 2016-17 Coppa Italia quarter-final and is a rematch of last season’s Coppa Italia final which Juventus won 1-0 after extra time.


  • The last away team to win in Juventus Stadium in any competition was Udinese, 1-0 on August 23rd, 2015 (W33, D6).
  • Milan haven’t won at Juventus since 5th March 2011 (D0, L5)
  • Milan haven’t lost an away Coppa Italia match since May 10th, 2011 (W4, D1) (excluding neutral grounds).
  • There have been +2.5 goals in 5 of Milan’s last 6 away fixtures.
  • There have been +2.5 goals in 8 of Juventus’s last 10 Serie A games.


The two sides met in the Supercoppa Italiana in December, drawing 1–1 in Doha on 23rd December 2016. Before that, the two sides met at the San Siro in October with Manuel Locatelli scoring the only goal of the game to give Milan the 3 points.

Juventus has won the last 4 meetings between the two sides in Serie A. The Bianconeri is unbeaten in the last 4 Coppa Italia meetings (W3, D1).

Juve’s poor form didn’t last long. Lazio were beaten 2-0 one week after Fiorentina had beaten Juventus 2-1 in Florence. Max Allegri has few major worries regarding injuries so Milan know that they must beat a strong Juve side to make the last four.

Drawn at home, last season’s cup winners are strong favourites to reach the semi-finals particularly with their formidable home record behind them. The only injury concern is over Rolando Mandragora, so Max Allegri has virtually a full squad to choose from. Gonzalo Higuain scored his almost obligatory goal in the win over Lazio while Paulo Dybala grabbed his 3rd in 4 games at the weekend.

Allegri will be as encouraged by the performance of Juan Cuadrado who provided his first assist in 10 games against Lazio, as well as a "Man of the Match" performance. This season has seen the Colombian march the Chelsea fiasco out of his system and a return to the form shown in October only bodes well for Juve.

It’s been 14 years since Milan last lifted the Coppa Italia and the Rossoneri need to overcome a poor record against Juventus as well as beating the reigning cup holders and Italian champions in their own backyard to do so. Milan remain an enigma this season, capable of great mental strength – their 2-2 draw at Torino – or surrendering 1-2 at home to Napoli last weekend. Milan had drawn 3 and won 2 of their last 5 before Sunday’s defeat.

Vincent Montella still has injury concerns in midfield with Mati Fernandez and Ricardo Montolivio missing. He has strengthened his squad this week by signing Gerald Delafeu from Everton. The former Barcelona winger is expected to make his debut after signing from the Merseyside club on loan for the rest of the season on Tuesday.

A strong line-up is expected to take the field in Turin with much resting on Carlos Bacca and Suso in front of goal. Delafeu has trickery and dribbling skills which will make him a hard player to mark.
He also has a lot of potential to live up to; moving to one of Europe’s biggest clubs may finally help him to realise that.

Juventus are odds-on favourites for this match, and rightly so. There’s little optimism for a Milan win but they have yet to lose to the reigning champions and cup winners this season so cannot be easily dismissed.

Even so, it’s hard to see past Juventus winning albeit in a close game.
