Supercoppa set for San Siro on January 12

Inter and Juventus will play the Supercoppa Italiana at San Siro on January 12, it has been announced, after Saudi Arabia was scrapped as a venue.

The Lega Serie A still has a contract with Saudi Arabia with at least one more edition to be played there, after the 2018 edition, but they could not make the dates work this time around.

This is the trophy between the Serie A title holders and the Coppa Italia winners for the 2020-21 season.

It used to be played as the pre-season opener, but in recent years with a packed fixture list has slipped down to December or January.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the venue has now been chosen and it is the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, in the San Siro area of Milan, with a date of January 12.

Inter and Juventus recently crossed paths here in Serie A, with a 1-1 draw decided by a controversial late Paulo Dybala penalty.

Juve had won the Scudetto for nine consecutive campaigns before Inter ended that run, but they are in the Supercoppa Italiana anyway after winning the Coppa Italia.
