MILAN - Inter Milan will meet Palermo in
the Italian Cup Final after a 1-1 draw with AS Roma sealed a 2-1
aggregate win on Wednesday, offering Leonardo's side a ray of
light after a disappointing few weeks.
Cameroon striker Samuel Eto'o expertly opened the scoring
for Inter at the San Siro following good work by Houssine Kharja
and McDonald Mariga on 58 minutes.
Marco Borriello hit the post for the visitors before heading
in Simone Perrotta's cross six minutes from time to spark a
nervy finish for Inter who held on as even Roma keeper Doni
stormed up field.
But it was always a tough ask for Roma following Dejan
Stankovic's winner in the first leg and Inter's eagerness to
progress in the Cup having lost their Serie A and Champions
Milan, who sealed the scudetto at the weekend to end Inter's
five-year reign as champions, failed in their bid for a first
domestic double when they lost 2-1 at Palermo on Tuesday.
