Italian Super Cup 2023 Odds and Betting Guide
The Supercoppa Italiana or the Italian Super Cup is a prestigious and young competition established in 1988. It is the match between the Serie A champion and the winner of the Italian Cup, which often takes place one week before the start of the championship.
If there by any chance, one club wins both competitions, the runner-up from the Cup takes place in this event. That was something often seen, especially in the last few years, during Juventus’ domination.

The Italian Super Cup had 11 editions outside the native country. Four times that happened in China, two times in the USA, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia, and once in Tripoli. The first one played abroad was in 1993 in Washington, DC. Over the last few seasons, it is almost regular to see this game played in either China or somewhere in the Middle East.

Tips and Tricks When Betting
Since we see that the games played over the last few years take place outside Italia, we suggest that you check out the type of the surface. If it is artificial, the game is much faster, meaning that there are more chances for goals.
Also, check out the potential lineups. Even though this is a match for the trophy, you have to realize that the managers want to experiment in these games too. So have that on your mind.
