Andrea Pirlo insisted Juventus had forgotten about their recent loss to Inter ahead of the Coppa Italia semi-final between the Serie A giants.
Juve booked their spot in the last four with a 4-0 thrashing of SPAL in the quarter-finals on Wednesday.
They will face Inter in a two-legged semi-final, having fallen to the Nerazzurri less than a fortnight ago in Serie A.
But Pirlo said Juve – who reached the Coppa semi-finals for the eighth time in 10 seasons – had moved on from that encounter.
“We forgot the game in Milan [against Inter] because it was in the league,” the Juve head coach told a news conference.
“Next week we are going to play Coppa Italia semi-final so we will face them keen to qualify to the final. These two games are completely different.
“We have to cancel the game played last Sunday, but we have to prepare well for the semi-final.”
Alvaro Morata, Gianluca Frabotta, Dejan Kulusevski and Federico Chiesa scored in Juve’s resounding win over SPAL.
