The cup holders moved a step closer to a second straight title by booking a spot in next month’s final.
Inter Milan manager Simone Inzaghi praised his side for playing like a ‘real team’ on Wednesday by overcoming Juventus to reach the Coppa Italia final.
Federico Dimarco’s first-half goal settled the second leg of the semi-final tie in Inter’s favor. The Nerazzurri won 1-0 at San Siro, sealing a 2-1 aggregate triumph.
“It was an intense match from start to finish, we deserved to reach the final,” Inzaghi told Mediaset.
“We are very happy, we wanted to return to Rome [to the Stadio Olimpico for the May 24 final].”
On the performance of his players, Inzaghi added: “They were very good, they had a great race tonight. We did not lose a yard against a strong team, we have remained united and compact, [and] we have been a real team.
“Whoever entered played his part. I take away many excellent points.”
Inter will face either the winner of Thursday’s second-leg semi-final game between Fiorentina and Cremonese.
For now, Inzaghi’s side will switch their focus back to Serie A. They will visit second-placed Lazio on Sunday, hoping to improve on their sixth position in the standings.
