Inter, Fiorentina meet in Italian Cup final with eyes on European prizes

Both Inter Milan and Fiorentina head into Wednesday’s Italian Cup final with their eyes on even bigger prizes this season, said AP.

Inter plays Manchester City in the Champions League final on June 10, three days after Fiorentina takes on another Premier League side in West Ham in the Europa Conference League final.

First they’ll have to focus on the match at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome. Inter is looking to defend the Italian Cup title and maintain its bid for a trio of trophies this season under coach Simone Inzaghi, who has become known as something of a cup specialist.

Inzaghi has won six of seven previous finals as coach. He led Lazio to the Italian Cup in 2019 as well as two Italian Super Cup trophies.

He’s also won two Italian Super Cup titles with Inter including beating city rival AC Milan this season – as well as last year’s Italian Cup.

Despite Inzaghi’s cup success, the 47-year-old has constantly been under pressure this season and had to face questions about his future, with the team perceived to have underperformed in the league.
