After Barcelona’s 3-1 win over Real Madrid in the Spanish Super Cup played in Riyadh, turn for Milan and Inter, on Wednesday (2:00 p.m.) in a Lombard derby also in the capital of Saudi Arabia and with the same trophy at stake.
The Rossoneri, reigning Serie A champions, hope that the trip to Saudi Arabia will serve as a turning point after a complicated World Cup return, with two draws that have allowed Napoli to escape as leaders, in addition to an elimination in the Italian Cup against a Torino reduced to ten players (1-0 in extra time).

“I’m always worried, even when we win. We will do everything possible to be ready for the Super Cup,” coach Stefano Pioli said on Saturday after drawing 2-2 with Lecce, a duel in which his players disappointed in the first period, in the image of French international Theo Hernandez, replaced at half-time.
Inter, the current champion of the Cup and the Super Cup, faces the trip to Riyadh as a small revenge against its great rival after losing in extremis in the race for the ‘Scudetto’ 2022.
A true man of finals, the nerazurro coach Simone Inzaghi can achieve at 46 years a fourth edition of the Super Cup in four participations, reaching the record shared by Fabio Capello and Marcello Lippi.
Inzaghi lifted the trophy twice with Lazio (2017 and 2019) and once with Inter (2022).

AC Milan vs Inter Milan: Operation seduction
In the Super Cup, the two great Lombard rivals have only met in 2011. Then Milan won with a goal from Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who will not be on Wednesday due to knee surgery in May.
Between the Spanish Super Cup won by Barcelona and Thursday’s gala friendly between a selection of Saudi Arabia’s two best clubs, Al-Hilal and Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr, the kingdom hosts the Italian Super Cup for the third time.
The first two, held in January and December 2019, were preceded by controversies over respect for human and women’s rights in the country.
After two editions in Italy due to the pandemic, Serie A returns to the Arab world, where Italian football does not have the visibility it wants, as shown by the difficulty of finding a diffuser of its competition in this region.
The previous broadcaster, beIN Sport, did not attend the last contest, in 2021, reproaching Serie A for sponsorships precisely with Saudi Arabia.
The Qatari group accused Saudi Arabia of supporting a system of hacking sports broadcasts.
After a year with Serie A matches offered for free through YouTube in this region, the championship reached an agreement in June with the Abu Dhabi Media conglomerate for the next three seasons, but for a lower amount than BeIN paid.
