Reigning champions Inter Milan will kick off their Coppa Italia campaign on Tuesday (January 10) at the San Siro against Parma.
The hosts are one of eight Serie A teams to qualify directly for the Round of 16. Inter are unbeaten in their last four league games and are coming off a 2-2 draw against Monza on Sunday. They have qualified for the Coppa Italia semifinals in the last three editions.
Parma, meanwhile, beat Salernitana 2-0 and Bari 1-0 to make the Round of 16. They are winless in their last two Serie B games and, like Inter, are coming off a 2-2 draw, against Venezia in December.
Franco Vazquez bagged a brace, but two goals in 12 second-half minutes meant they dropped points for the second straight league game.
