Coppa Italia: Holders Inter Face Tough Quarter-Final Draw

Defending Coppa Italia champions Inter Milan will have their work cut out for them as they host in-form Atalanta in the quarter-finals. La Dea have been scoring goals for fun of late, and they will be keen to knock the holders out.

And in the other big quarter-final tie, Juventus will look to stay alive in their only remaining shot at silverware this season as they take on Lazio.

Elsewhere, Fiorentina and Torino meet again after facing off just a few weeks ago while Roma host struggling Cremonese.

Read on below as SBOTOP previews all four Coppa Italia quarter-finals.

Inter Milan vs Atalanta

Inter and Atalanta are currently second and third in the Serie A table as of this writing. After both dropped points the previous week – Inter lost at home to Empoli while Atalanta drew 3-3 in their massive clash against Juventus – they bounced back with wins as Inter beat bottom-club Cremonese while Atalanta smashed second-from-bottom Sampdoria 2-0.

Lautaro Martinez bagged both goals against Cremonese as his post-World Cup purple patch continues. The Argentine has now scored six goals in his last seven appearances, including the late equaliser in their extra-time 2-1 win against Parma in the previous round.

Lautaro is likely to lead the line once again this midweek, with either Romelu Lukaku or Joaquin Correa replacing veteran Edin Dzeko.

As for Atalanta, they are now six games unbeaten in all competitions after their win over Samp. They have been in terrific goalscoring form of late, with 18 goals over their last four games. That includes an 8-2 hammering of Salernitana and a 5-2 rout of Spezia in the previous round of the Coppa Italia.

Ademola Lookman had a brace in that match as he has been banging in the goals in his debut season in Bergamo. The 25-year-old, who is second in Serie A with 12 goals, has been involved in 9 of those 18 goals in the last four games with 7 goals and 2 assists.

Fiorentina vs Torino

Fiorentina and Torino will meet for the second time in the space of just a couple of weeks. The two met on Jan. 21 in Florence, and Torino came away with a 1-0 away win thanks to an Aleksey Miranchuk goal.

Miranchuk has been one of Torino’s star performers this season; the Russian is one of three Torino players with 4 league goals (Antonio Sanabria and Nikola Vlasic are the two others), and also has 2 assists.

Torino produced one of the top Coppa Italia 2023 results thus far as they knocked off reigning Serie A champions AC Milan 1-0 in extra-time at the San Siro in the previous round.

Meanwhile, Fiorentina are floundering. Their loss to Torino was their second in a row, and they could very well lose a third straight away to Lazio. The Viola were kept goalless in back-to-back games, the first time that has happened since the start of the season.

Fiorentina are tied with Torino with just 21 goals scored in Serie A, although they have played one game fewer. Arthur Cabral, Giacomo Bonaventura, and Luka Jovic are tied for the team lead with just three goals apiece as the team has been unable to find a consistent source of goals.

Roma vs Cremonese

Roma are on a roll at the moment. Prior to their match against Serie A leaders Napoli, Jose Mourinho’s side are unbeaten in their last seven games in all competitions with four wins and three draws. That includes a 1-0 win over Genoa in the previous round, followed by back-to-back 2-0 wins over Fiorentina and Spezia.

Paulo Dybala has been in fantastic form of late. After scoring the winner against Genoa, the Argentine scored both goals against Fiorentina and collected 2 assists against Spezia. One of those assists went to Tammy Abraham, who is finally regaining his best form and has picked up 2 goals and 2 assists over his last four games.

The Giallorossi will like their chances of moving on to the semi-finals as they host Cremonese, who have yet to win a single match in Serie A. Although, I Grigiorossi did defy the Coppa Italia 2023 odds as they knocked out Napoli in the previous round on penalties.

Juventus vs Lazio

With Juventus out of the Champions League and their Serie A title hopes dashed by the massive 15-point penalty, the Old Lady’s only hope of silverware this season is the Coppa Italia.

The Bianconeri beat Monza 2-1 to reach the quarter-finals. Federico Chiesa got the winning goal, his first since returning from his serious knee injury.

Chiesa has only started one game to date – Juve’s 5-1 thrashing at the hands of Napoli. If he doesn’t start on the weekend against Monza, he could very well do so in midweek against Lazio.

Speaking of the Biancocelesti, they have won three games in a row ahead of their weekend clash against Fiorentina.

Felipe Anderson has been fantastic as he’s stepped up in the absence of captain Ciro Immobile. The Brazilian has scored in each of his last four games, including the winner against Bologna to send Lazio to the Coppa Italia 2023 quarter-finals.
