Contrary to what happens in European competitions, where the away goal rule has been abolished this season, goals according to Footballitalia away will still ‘count double’ for this season’s Coppa Italia semi-finals. This is because the FIGC has decided to adopt the UEFA rule for away goals from 2022-23.


Teams playing the return leg of the semifinals can as well see the reverse fixture as an advantage knowing their goals in the previous leg can count for something rather than just a win or draw situation.

The Coppa Italia semi-finals are the only games played on a two-leg basis in the competition. The away goal rule will be abolished for Coppa matches from 2022-23.

AC Milan and Inter have met each other just two times in cup semi-finals: during the 2002/03 Champions League and the 1984/85 Coppa Italia. On both occasions, the Rossoneri made it to the final (a 0-0 draw at home and a 1-1 away draw in the UCL in May 2003; a 2-1 away victory followed by a 1-1 home draw in Italy’s national cup competition in June 1985).

AC Milan are unbeaten in seven of their last eight matches against Inter across the Coppa Italia, Champions League and Supercoppa Italiana (W4, D3). In percentage terms, the Rossoneri have lost 38% of their matches against the Nerazzurri in the league; in cup competitions, however, this figure stands at 27%.

Inter have won five of their last eight matches against Milan in the Coppa Italia (D1, L2). They have also found the back of the net in their last nine meetings with the Rossoneri in all competitions whilst taking home the victory on six occasions (D1, L2).
