There are even banners for guest coach José Mourinho, understandable because he had an extremely long and successful time here as a Tariner, including the Champions League victory in 2010.
The teams come into the half-filled arena, it’s about to start here.
The last time the two teams met in the league was in December, and it was very clear back then. Inter, deservedly and confidently, defeated Roma 3-0.
Roma cannot be satisfied with last weekend’s result either, they only managed a meager 0-0 against Genoa, second from bottom in the table. Coach José Mourinho therefore makes two changes today. Veretout and Viña start today for Maitland-Niles and Cristante.
The hosts want to get back on track after the bitter derby defeat against AC Milan at the weekend. Coach Simone Inzaghi makes four changes compared to this game. D’Ambrosio, Darmian, Sánchez and Vidal start today for Martinez, Dumfries, de Vrij and Calhanoglu.
Both teams had their problems with their round of 16 opponents. Inter only beat Empoli 3-2 in extra time. Roma defeated Lecce 3-1 but also benefited from a 30-minute advantage.
Good evening and welcome to the Coppa Italia quarter final match between Inter Milan and AS Roma. Kick-off at the Giuseppe Meazza Stadium is at 21:00.
