The Supercoppa Italiana is upon us, and Juventus will be looking to avenge their loss earlier this season.

AC Milan have traveled to Doha, Qatar for the Supercoppa Italiana final. It’s a final that the Rossoneri were fortunate to qualify for due to Juventus winning both the Serie A and the Coppa Italia (who doesn’t love a default qualification!). However, this is a different Milan from last year’s. Under Vincenzo Montella’s coaching, the players seem to be more cohesive, still struggling at times but able to get results nevertheless. The football hasn't been pretty, but it's worked. And they'll need it to work to get a win against a Juve side who has returned to good form and is in full health.

Both sides will be hungry for a win at Doha, and it will be up to the players to settle it out on the pitch. Will Locatelli repeat his miracle? Or will Dybala and the Bianconeri claim another piece of silverware?
