Napoli Set Up A Coppa Italia Final With Juventus After Defeating Inter Milan 2-1 on Aggregate.

Napoli makes it through to the Coppa Italia final, following a 2-1 aggregate win at home to Inter Milan on Saturday night.

Napoli started the game with a goal advantage after winning the first leg 1-0 at the San Siro last February.

Cristian Eriksen opened the scoring for Inter just two minutes into the start of the game, as his corner evades everyone and ends up straight into the net.

Dries Mertens equalised for Napoli towards the end of half-time after converting a pass from Insigne in the 41st minutes.

The goal for Mertens makes him become the all-time top goal scorer for Napoli in history.

Second half began quite intense for both teams, but ended in a 1-1 result at full time, which saw Antonio Conte's men crash out of the competition.

Napoli will now face the thirteen time winners Juventus in the final on Wednesday 17th June at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.

Gennaro Gattuso whoose contract as Napoli's boss ends at the end of the season says after the game;
“We conceded a daft goal, but it was not Ospina’s error, it was an error in the positioning on the corner. After 90-plus days, we started where we left off.

“The squad believes in what we’re doing, works hard during the week and these lads are giving us everything. I think the quality level is very high and if we manage to defend and attack with humility, we can achieve great things.”
