Juventus vs SPAL: Predictions
Juventus manager Andrea Pirlo won the Coppa Italia twice as a player, including the 2015 edition for the Old Lady against Lazio, and he can take a step closer to clinching his first piece of managerial silverware when his side welcomes Serie B outfit SPAL to Turin.
Pasquale Marino’s side are the last remaining lower-league club in the competition, having seen off Sassuolo in the round-of-16 and Crotone in the third-round. The White and Blues will now be aiming to pick off a third top-flight club and book their place in the penultimate stage, where one of the Milan giants awaits.
In the adjacent fixture Inter Milan and AC Milan do battle on Tuesday night, with the winner of that Derby della Madonnina facing one of Juve or SPAL. The former needed extra-time to see off Genoa in the previous round and will be looking to end a three-year wait for Coppa Italia glory.
SPAL meanwhile have never tasted Coppa Italia success, finishing runners-up in 1961/62, but Marino’s side are flying high in the second tier and will be relishing the chance to pull off a giantkilling against the reigning Italian champions while achieving a morale-boosting win to provide fresh impetus in their promotion push.

Juventus vs SPAL: Match Stats
Juve have not been at their all-conquering best in Serie A this term, but the Old Lady remain firmly in pursuit of a record 10th successive Scudetto, with Pirlo still finding his managerial feet in the dugout. Under the former metronomic playmaker Juve have naturally adopted a possession-based game, with overlapping full-backs, which has led to a considerable number of corners. As it stands Juve have registered the joint-second-most corners in Serie A this term (112), so SPAL can expect an all-out assault down the flanks.
Despite SPAL suffering the ignominy of relegation in 2019/20 and collecting the wooden spoon in dead last, they were not comprehensively picked apart by Maurizio Sarri’s side. Cristiano Ronaldo scored in both fixtures, but SPAL held their own with respectable 2-0 and 2-1 defeats, offering a glimmer of hope for Wednesday’s meeting; if they catch Juve on a bad day, they could sneak an unlikely win.
