It's been a lean decade for the Rossoneri, who have won a solitary honor since 2011, and with the Serie A title race on a knife-edge, the Coppa Italia represents their best hope of a trophy this season. And the omens are promising.

Stefano Pioli's men have had the measure of their city rivals this season. They're undefeated through three breathless encounters, winning once and sharing the spoils twice. The first leg of this semi-final showdown ended 0-0, which means that, as today's designated 'away' team, Milan only need a score draw to advance.

This has been a terrific first season for Simone Inzaghi at Inter, but he's yet to lead the Nerazzurri to a Derby della Madonnina victory. Finally getting that weighty monkey off his back is just as big a motivation as reaching the cup final.

With Lautaro Martinez in blue and Olivier Giroud in red, many of Italian football's biggest stars are in action. Read on as we explain how to watch an Inter vs Milan live stream for this Coppa Italia semi-final.
