AC Milan and Inter Milan will meet in the match for the Italian Super Cup. The match will take place on January 18 in Riyadh (Saudi Arabia), starting at 19:00 GMT.
Super Cup 2022
AC Milan are quite worthy of the season, being second in the Serie A table after 18 rounds with 38 points.
However, several mistakes do not allow the team under the leadership of Stefano Pioli to seriously count on the title – Napoli has already come off in the table by nine points.
It will be very difficult to win back, especially considering that the Neapolitans suffered only one defeat in the entire first round.
In recent matches, Milan did not show their best game – the club lost points in the championship twice in fights with Lecce (2-2) and Roma (2-2), and also flew out of the Cup from Torino.
Inter, unlike its today’s rival, did not manage to hold the starting segment in a quality manner. The team, led by Simone Inzaghi, regularly lost points in the championship, allowing competitors to go into a serious gap.
As a result, the crisis was overcome quite quickly – Inter Milan got out of a very difficult group of the Champions League and, at the end of the first half of the Serie A tournament distance, burst into the top four.
Inter are fourth in the table and 10 points behind leaders Napoli, who theoretically still leave a chance for a trophy. However, Lazio, Atalanta and Roma are in serious competition for a place in the top four.
In the last round, Inter beat Verona (1-0), extending their unbeaten streak in all competitions to six matches.
