AC Milan will be kicking off the return from the suspension of football in Italy with their Coppa Italia semi final second leg against Juventus away from home. Milan and Juventus drew 1-1 in the first leg after a controversial last minute penalty was awarded to Juventus for a hand ball by Davide Calabria. Milan must score in Turin as the away goal rule is currently against them to set up a final against either Inter Milan or Napoli on June 17th.

Milan are going to be missing key players for this encounter on the road as Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Theo Hernandez and Samu Castillejo are suspended for the fixture. Stefano Pioli must rotate well to have a chance to challenge Juventus, he will likely employ a 4-4-2 where Rafael Leao will partner with Ante Rebic up front. Milan have not made it to a final since the 2015/16 where they lost to Juventus in the final.
