Hot Start from Inter
Inter started the match strong, missing a chance in the third minute when Lautaro failed to control the ball. In the 12th minute, Inter won a corner from the right, with Dimarco executing a cross that was met by Bastoni with a header. Dumfries attempted to score, but Sandro pushed the ball away.
In the 15th minute, Inter took the lead with a goal from Federico Dimarco. The striker scored a ground shot into the net, taking advantage of a disastrous defensive position from Kostic, who broke offside.
Lautaro had several chances to double Inter’s lead, with his second attempt in the 20th minute passing near the right post of Juventus goalkeeper Perrin. Juventus’ first attempt came in the 26th minute when De Sciglio met Sandro’s cross with a header that passed higher than the goal.
Second Half and Missed Opportunities
In the second half, Allegri made a substitution, with Milik replacing Kostic, and Juventus switched to a 4-3-3 playing method. Dzeko scored a second goal for Inter in the 52nd minute, but the referee canceled it for offside. Lautaro missed several more opportunities to score, with Perrin making a legendary save in the 73rd minute.
Inter Secures Their Spot in the Final
