Former AC Milan defender Alessandro Costacurta has said that Juventus will have a point to prove in the Coppa Italia final against Inter later this season, according to a report in the Italian broadcast media.
Speaking whilst on Sky Sport after Juventus’ 2-0 victory over Fiorentina on Wednesday night, via FCInter1908, Alessandro Costacurta explained that he thinks the final against Inter will be similar to the recent league game but Juventus will have a point to prove again.
“I expect a match like the one in Turin, Juventus will want to prove that they are back because in my opinion, they are really back.”
Inter made it into the final thanks to a commanding 3-0 victory over AC Milan at San Siro on Tuesday evening. Alessandro Costacurta was clearly impressed with Lautaro Martinez and thinks he could have a great partnership with Lautaro Martinez if the latter joins Inter this summer.
“Yesterday I saw a national team version of Lautaro Martinez, Dybala with Lautaro upfront alone could make up a beautiful duo, perhaps better than the current one.”
As for the Serie A title race, Alessandro Costacurta feels Inter are the clear favourites now that they have beaten AC Milan in the Coppa Italia semi-final.
“Inter are the favourite for Tuesday’s result, I’m curious to see if Milan will react as well as they always have this season”
