There was only one crucial ex-footballer in this match. Not José Mourinho, who was applauded and celebrated by the Curva Nord , who cannot forget his 2010, but the former of the other side, Edin Dzeko, the third highest scorer in Roma history. The first good cross, a great goal, then in the second half Sanchez put his signature under another masterpiece and Inter are in the semi-finals of the Coppa Italia. Today they will know if they will play another derby with Milan, or meet Lazio, but for Inzaghi it is another good step forward. The 10 days that could decide the Nerazzurri’s season (derby in the championship, Roma in the Coppa Italia, Napoli in the championship and Liverpool in the Champions League) had started in the worst way, but the reaction was immediate. Inter don’t stop. Roma are strong, we saw that on the pitch.
After Marco Di Bello blew the whistle, Alexis Sanchez, who scored a standing ovation in the Coppa Italia match against AS Roma, commented on the outcome of the game to Sport Mediaset: “We played well in the derby, but in games like this you can’t make mistakes. We’re calm, we’re still in first place, and we’re holding our heads high. AS Roma are strong, we saw that on the pitch.
Was the goal a little message for Inzaghi ahead of Napoli?
“I want to play all the time, I also said that with Conte. Then a coach makes his choices and I respect them, even if it’s difficult to play 10-15 minutes”.
