Juventus will look to salvage some silverware from this disappointing season when they face Inter in the Coppa Italia final on Wednesday.

Juventus team news
Juventus have a few fitness issues to address. In midfield, Weston McKennie is not yet ready to return and a final decision must be made on Manuel Locatelli, who has recovered from injury but is unlikely to start.
In defence, Luca Pellegrini is expected to be fit enough to start over Alex Sandro but must pass a late fitness test, while Mattia De Sciglio is suspended. Federico Chiesa and Kaio Jorge remain out.
Allegri has confirmed that Paulo Dybala will start, despite being heavily linked with a summer move to Inter.
Simone Inzaghi has ruled Matias Vecino out of this one after the midfielder pulled up with a minor muscle injury in the build-up to this one.
Alessandro Bastoni has returned to training after a few weeks out with an ankle problem and he is expected to be in contention to feature, although perhaps not from the start.
Juventus vs Inter score prediction
This is a tough one.
Inter have been the better team this season, but their focus needs to be divided between this game and the Serie A run-in. Inzaghi’s men would rather win the league than lift this cup, whereas all Juventus have to play for this season is glory here.
Neither manager will come out all guns blazing, but you get the feeling that Juventus will have that little bit more in the tank to salvage something from this season.
Prediction: Juventus 2-1 Inter
