Darmian Fires Inter Milan Into Semi-Finals
Inter Milan, the defending champions, advanced to the semi-finals of the Coppa Italia with a 1-0 win over Atalanta.
A second-half goal from Matteo Darmian secured the victory for Simone Inzaghi’s team.
They will now face either Juventus or Lazio, the winner of Thursday’s match, for a spot in the final.
In the first half, Inter dominated but failed to score, with Hakan Calhanoglu coming closest with a shot that hit the post.
Darmian broke the deadlock after 57 minutes with a well-placed shot in the bottom corner.
Despite Atalanta’s attempts, Inter’s defense held strong until the end.
On Wednesday, Fiorentina will play Torino and Roma will face Cremonese in the remaining quarter-finals.
