Despite conceding three at the Stadio Olimpico, Juve have the joint-third best defensive record in Serie A, when adjusted for goals conceded per game, and Max Allegri’s side have kept five clean sheets in their last eight outings.
Inter can make home advantage count
With both sides recording impressive defensive statistics, a goal-fest should not be expected on Wednesday night.
Italy’s two best-supported clubs shared a cagey 1-1 draw on this ground in October, while their only previous Supercoppa meeting saw the Nerazzurri emerge with a 1-0 extra-time win in 2005.
