Lautaro puts Inter in the final

Lautaro Martínez, jugador del Inter, celebra uno de los goles contra el Milan en la Copa de Italia.

Inter won the pass to the Italian Cup final, which will be played against the winner of Juve-Fiorentina, thanks to a great victory in the derby with Milan, after the 0-0 first leg. The result is undoubtedly too much punishment for the Rossoneri, who protested (a lot) for a referee’s decision that could have changed the history of this double semi-final.

The hero of the interista night was Lautaro Martinez, who opened the can after four minutes with a powerful shot at the first touch that slipped through the squad, to Darmian pass. That early goal was a treasure for Simone Inzaghi’s men, who were able to manage the scoring against their rivals’ arreón, who deserved to draw.

After a couple of chances built up by Kessié, the quickness of Leao, Saelemaekers and after a vital intervention by Skriniar a step from the goal line, Inter increased their lead. He did it right at the Milanisti’s best moment, with a vertical pass from Correa that Lautaro took advantage of with a delicate Vaseline.

Milan started the second half with Brahim and Messias in place of Tonali and Saelemaekers, pushing even harder towards the Nerazzurri goal. In the Italian Cup, inexplicably, away goals still have double value, so Pioli’s men needed a 2-2 win to qualify. The 2-1 that would have changed the game came in minute 68, with a whiplash from the edge of Bennacer, who was to be substituted shortly after. The referee, however, canceled the goal due to Kalulu’s offside in the play that, according to his interpretation after having seen the VAR images, hindered Handanovic.

The decision immediately caused a lot of controversy and gave more momentum to Inter, who ten minutes later signed the sentence with Gosens. The winger pushed a perfect center from Brozovic between the sticks and definitively closed the contest, unleashing the interista party. The cup challenger was the Nerazzurri, but the head-to-head between the Milanese will continue in Serie A. The scudetto is still up for grabs…
