Inter secured a hard-fought victory in the Coppa Italia final, successfully defending their title with a 2-1 win over Fiorentina at the Stadio Olimpico.

Simeone Inzaghi’s team faced a determined Fiorentina side, but ultimately emerged as champions once again. The match began with an early breakthrough, as Nicolás González scored within three minutes, marking the third-fastest goal in a Coppa Italia final. However, Fiorentina’s hopes of an equalizer were dashed when Edin Dzeko missed a crucial chance.

As the game progressed, Inter regained their composure and increased the pressure on their opponents. Lautaro Martinez, the team’s leading scorer, displayed great composure by slotting home an equalizer from close range. Martinez continued his impressive performance, scoring a brilliant volley just before halftime to give Inter a 2-1 lead.

In the second half, Fiorentina appeared to be the more likely side to score, with González and Arthur Cabral pushing forward. However, Inter’s goalkeeper, Samir Handanović, stood firm and prevented any further goals. The match at the Stadio Olimpico continued to deliver thrilling drama.

Romelu Lukaku, Inter’s key striker, entered the game as a substitute and almost added to the excitement with a long-range strike that forced a double save from Fiorentina’s goalkeeper, Pietro Terracciano. On the other side, Fiorentina’s substitute, Luka Jović, had three late attempts but fell short of finding an equalizer.

Inter’s outstanding performance, led by Martinez, was enough to secure their second consecutive Coppa Italia title. Fiorentina’s quest for their first title since 2001 remains unfulfilled. With the Supercoppa Italiana already in their hands, Inter now sets their sights on a potential cup treble as they prepare to face Manchester City in the upcoming Champions League final.
