It will be up to the Internazionale to open on Tuesday, December 12, the season of great teams in the Italian Cup. At the San Siro stadium in Milan, it receives the tiny Prodenone. The start of the match is scheduled for 18h (Brasília time). It is part of the schedule of the round of 16. At this stage, the settings are made in single game. Prolonging and penalties are options for the case of equal time in regulation.
The recent performance of Internazionale
The Internazionale is the leader of the Italian Championship in its version 2017/2018. He managed to keep the point by drawing, on Saturday, December 9, with Juventus. Reached 40 points (12 wins and four draws). Only unbeaten team in the competition, has a point more than Napoli, vice-leader, and two advantage in comparison with Juve, third placed.
A result that may be considered astonishing even for those awaiting an evolution of Inter with the economic boost received last season since its control passed to a group of Chinese investors.
Having a game against Udinese scheduled for Saturday, December 16, it is quite likely that coach Luciano Spaletti will not put on the field on Tuesday his maximum strength. You must physically preserve some of your top players and promote the cast relay.
To use this strategy, you have all of your cast in hand. No player is injured or suspended.
The current form of Pordenone
For Pordenone, the Italian Cup started much earlier. The team has already played three stages. In the first, as a visitor, overcame Venezia by 2 to 0. Then, at home, scored 3 to 2 in Lecce. In the third phase, again away from their dominions, scored 2 to 1 in Cagliari, which as well as Inter dispute the First Division of the Italian Championship.
A gigantic feat for a club that contests the Series C, the Third Division, without much prominence. With 25 points (six wins, seven draws and three losses) he is in fifth place. He is nine points behind Padova, but his score is enough to keep him in the block of teams that would be qualified for the next stage of the tournament and who will be able to continue in the fight to reach the Second Division.
This privilege is reserved for the top ten. In the comparison with South Tyrol, which occupies the eleventh position, the advantage of Pordenone is four points.
History of the bouts between Internazionale and Pordenone
This will be the first match between teams.
Although there is still no official confirmation, it is very likely that Internazionale will put a team much closer to the reserve than the starter to face Pordenone on Tuesday. It should be enough for the team to advance to the quarterfinals of the Italian Cup. Milan’s team success is priced at 1.10 at Rivalo. Draw promotes return of 9.00 and successful visitor yields 18.00 per invested real.
