Inter beat Juventus and became champion of the Italian Cup

Inter became champion of the Italian Cup today by beating Juventus 4-2 in extra time in the final, played at the Olympic stadium in Rome, as they equalized 2-2 in the 90 minutes of regulation.

The match started better for those led by Simone Inzaghi, since, six minutes into the first half, Nicolo Barella hooked up the left sector and took a powerful shot with his right leg from outside the area that culminated in a goal.

Despite the advantage obtained, Inter suffered attacks from Juventus, who had two clear chances to score, but goalkeeper Samir Handanovic showed off and avoided the rival team’s goal.

In the complement, the “Vecchia Signora” quickly achieved equality, after four minutes, through Alvaro Morata, who deflected a shot by Alex Sandro that dislodged the goalkeeper and established the tie.

Two minutes later, Paulo Dybala set up Dusan Vlahovic, who made a great individual move to put the Turin side ahead.

When it seemed that the cast ended 2 to 1, at 32 minutes of the second stage, Lautaro Martínez was knocked down inside the area, Paolo Valeri charged a penalty and Hakan Calhanoglu was in charge of establishing the parity that forced everything to be defined in time supplementary.

In added time, Inter imposed conditions right away, as in the eighth minute Stefan de Vrij was fouled by Matthijs De Ligt inside the area and Ivan Perisic exchanged it for a goal.

Three minutes later, the Croatian took a powerful left-footed shot that entered the goal unopposed and sealed the final 4-2

With this result, Inter won the Italian Cup after 11 years, since its last consecration was in the 2010/11 edition, when it beat Palermo in the final.
