Coppa Italia Final: Inter Milan crowned champions after 11 years
Inter Milan win the Coppa Italia for the first time since 2011 courtesy of a 4-2 victory over Juventus.
Ivan Perisic’s double secured Coppa Italia glory for Inter as they came from 2-1 down to beat Juventus 4-2 after extra time at the Stadio Olimpico. Barella broke the deadlock in stunning fashion as he cut in from the left and unleashed an unstoppable long-range strike into the top-right corner.
Juve’s response was impressive, Samir Handanovic forced into action to deny Paulo Dybala and then producing a superb save to turn Vlahovic’s near-post effort behind. Handanovic tipped Matthijs de Ligt’s header over the crossbar on the half-hour mark, with Dybala then firing narrowly wide of the left-hand post.
Inter will celebrate their success, but they will have to turn the page quickly at the weekend in pursuit of the Serie A crown. They face a crucial trip on the road to Cagliari on Sunday, knowing a defeat could end their hopes of winning the Scudetto. Juve are next in action on Monday at home to Lazio.
