Coppa Italia: Heartbreak For Moses As Napoli Edge Inter To Reach Final

Dries Mertens became Napoli’s record scorer after his goal helped Napoli beat Inter Milan 2-1 on aggregate to progress to the final of the Coppa Italia final where they will face Juventus.

Former Super Eagles forward Victor Moses was introduced in the second-half but was powerless to prevent Inter Milan from falling short.

Five-time winners Napoli led 1-0 from the first leg played at the San Siro before the coronavirus pandemic forced the suspension of football in Italy.

The second-leg played in an empty Stadio San Paolo saw Napoli’s first-leg lead quickly wiped off when Christian Ericksen beat David Ospina from a corner after just two minutes on the clock.

Belgium forward Mertens made it 2-1 on aggregate after an assist from Lorenzo Insigne following a counter-attack.

It was his 122nd goal for Napoli, one more than Slovakia’s Marek Hamsik.

Mertens is now seven goals clear of club legend Diego Maradona.

Napoli, who last won the competition in 2014, will meet Juventus in the final without any fans present on Wednesday at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.
