For a large part of the campaign it seemed that Napoli were going to cause a shock and claim the Serie A title, ending six years of Juventus dominance; this only seemed more likely when the Blues won in Turin last month to close the gap to a single point. However, the Old Lady’s class as well as experience has shone through since then and they are now just a point from confirming the Scudetto.
Massimiliano Allegri, who may well be in his last season following interest from Arsenal in replacing Arsene Wenger, could still the season having claimed the Double, with a Coppa Italia final against Milan taking place on Wednesday at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.
Juve have lost just once in domestic matches since November and it is this form – built on the foundation of a remarkably tight defence – that sees them as one of the most consistent sides in Europe. In addition, they have lost just three league games all season, and won both their fixtures against Milan.
The Rossoneri will take belief into the final from the fact that they beat Juventus in the 2016 Supercoppa Italiana, and their squad has been massively enhanced since then. Milan’s season has been a major disappointment, though, and they will not reach their primary target of Champions League qualification. They cannot finish higher than sixth in the league and were eliminated from the Europa League by Arsenal, though Gennaro Gattuso has improved their fortunes since taking charge and claiming the Coppa Italia would be a strong way to finish the campaign.
Given their impressive form throughout 2017/18, Tipbet have Juventus at 1.40 to claim the trophy by any means, or 1.90 to do so in normal time. Milan have kept four consecutive clean sheets, so a low-scoring meeting is likely and Tipbet customers can back against both sides scoring at 1.65.
Milan are 4.65 to win the Coppa Italia in 90 minutes, though extra-time (2.75) and a penalty shootout (4.50) also offer high earning potential – there are 105 markets to bet on at Tipbet.com.
