Coppa Italia holders Inter welcome Serie B's Parma to the San Siro for this Coppa Italia round-of-16 clash. Parma haven't beaten Inter since 2018, when both sides were competing in the top tier – can they turn back the clock tonight? The match is free-to-air on Italy's Canale 5. Here's how to watch an Inter vs Parma free live stream from anywhere.
Inter have been a hard team to pin down so far this season. After becoming the first side to inflict a Serie A defeat on Napoli this term, they followed it up by drawing with 15th-placed Monza at the weekend. That result leaves them 10 points off the top in fourth place, so defending their Coppa Italia title could quite possibly be the Nerazzurri's best chance of a trophy this season.
Head coach Simone Inzaghi has made a number of changes to his side tonight but it's still a team that's packed with quality. Lautaro Martinez partners Joaquin Correa up top, Gosens and Dumfries are the wingbacks, and Onana continues in goal. Danilo D'Ambrosio captains the side.
After an unstoppable climb back to the pinnacle of Italian football following financial troubles, Parma find themselves back in the second tier after being relegated from Serie A in 2021. Currently sitting in sixth place, 12 points behind leaders Frosinone, it's a long way from the glory days of Gianluigi Buffon, Fabio Cannavaro and Hernan Crespo, but a shock win here would bring back memories of better times in Parma.
Parma are without Cobbaut, Charpentier, Ansaldi and Mihaila due to injuries, but there's a very familiar face between the sticks. 44-year-old goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, who made 168 appearances for Parma before joining Juventus back in 2001, is preferred to Leandro Chichizola.
The winner plays either Atalanta or Spezia in the quarterfinal, so read on as we explain how to watch an Inter vs Parma live stream for today's Coppa Italia round of 16.
