The single match between Simone Inzaghi’s Inter and José Mourinho’s Roma will be played at the Giuseppe Meazza Stadium in Milan for a place in the semi-finals of the 2021/2022 Italian Cup. The two teams had already met in the league in December, and at the Olimpico, the Nerazzurri won 3-0, finishing everything in the first half.
Fresh from the defeat in the derby in a 2-1 comeback, Inter will still not be able to field the new signing, Gosens, who is injured, and will also have to do without Correa.
On the other hand, the Giallorossi drew 0-0 against Genoa in the last round of the Seria A, in which after the match the controversy over the canceled goal and the subsequent expulsion of Nicolò Zaniolo dominated. In Rome, Spinazzola always remains in the infirmary.

The Italian Cup becomes a very uncomfortable presence at this moment for both teams, who must also think about the next delicate round of the championship away from Napoli and Sassuolo.
The situation requires attention and turn-over, and Roma, on the other hand, may find it difficult to score, though we believe they will see enough of the ball to do so.
According to our prediction, Inter Milan will win by a controlled 3-1 score after 90 minutes.
The match, which will be played on Wednesday, February 9, at 21:00 at the Giuseppe Meazza stadium in Milan, will see two teams face off in the national cup.
Rossoneri, currently led by Stefano Pioli, do not want to miss out on the Coppa Italia, not least because winning the title risks becoming a feat in the face of a high-performing Inter. Zlatan Ibrahimovic is not at his best and he cannot be risked, but his condition will be evaluated day by day. Milan have already been eliminated from the European Cups, so they will not ignore any other competition. The “Devil” hasn’t raised a trophy for several years.
On the other hand, Lazio fails to take advantage of direct rival mistakes and seriously risks not qualifying for the Champions League. The squad remains at a good level, but the feeling is that everything continues to revolve exclusively around the figure of Ciro Immobile. The transfer market was not profitable and the coach was starting to show signs of impatience. This team always lacks that little bit more to get what it deserves, but there are still many possibilities to raise their heads and make a turn.

AC Milan vs Lazio Predicted XI
AC Milan Predicted XI: Maignan; Florenzi, Kalulu, Gabbia, Hernandez; Leao, Krunic, Bakayoko; Saelemaekers, Diaz; Ibrahimovic.
Lazio Predicted XI: Reina; Hysaj, Acerbi, Luiz Felipe, Marusic; Leiva, Pedro, Milinkovic-Savic, Luis Alberto; Felipe Anderson, Immobile.
The presence of many goals is the most likely scenario for this match. AC Milan will likely approach the four lines with a more offensive strategy because they are playing at home, but Lazio’s rapid transitions, particularly by Brazilian Felipe Anderson, could cause severe issues for the home club.
It’s worth noting that both clubs’ offensive units are really capable. Having said that, and in light of these considerations, betting on the “More 2.5 Goals” in this game is a good bet.
