Coppa Italia: Advantage Inter [VIDEO]

The Coppa Italia semi-finals kicked off today in Rome, as last year’s finalists, Roma and Inter, faced off in the Stadio Olimpico.

The Italian domestic cup represents the last real chance for silverware for either of the two teams as both teams have already been eliminated from European competition, and any hopes of winning the league, for Inter at least, were essentially extinguished this past weekend.

It was Inter that struck first in the two-legged affair, winning 1-0 on another sublime Dejan Stankovic long distance strike. Inter will take the one goal advantage back to the San Siro for the second leg which is scheduled for May 11th.

Milan face off against Palermo in the other semi-final fixture tomorrow afternoon at the San Siro. The Rossoneri have their eyes on a domestic double, and will look to come out strong in the first leg in hopes of taking a lead back to Sicily.
