The Lazio manager was very excited after his side defeated 1-0 AC Milan to book their ticket to the Coppa Italia Final.

After the first leg saw Lazio and AC Milan tie 0-0, a lot was expected from the second leg in the Coppa Italia Semifinal.

And it did not disappoint. Both sides played extremely well and only a single goal by Joaquin Correa allowed Lazio to go through the next round.

“We reached an amazing target, we are going to play the third final in three years. We deserve it,” Lazio manager Simone Inzaghi told Calcio Mercato.

“We won twice at the San Siro against Inter and AC Milan but now we need full focus on the Serie A games left. Then we will play the final at the Olimpico in front of our fans”.

“We played very well, we were compact for 90 minutes and Strakosha didn’t have to make one single save,” he continued.

“We are young and sometimes we make mistakes, we couldn’t afford to play with 10 men against Chievo but I don’t want to blame my players who have an immense heart”.

“Milinkovic Savic? He has a problem at the ankle and at the knee but the doctors say it shouldn’t be anything serious,” he said.

“We hope he won’t stay out of action for a long time. Parolo brilliantly replaced him. He hasn’t played very frequently but both he and Lulic are the leaders of this team. The guys played very well tonight”.

“I wanted to play Caicedo but I changed my mind this morning, despite two successive goals he accepted my decision and he followed me,” he concluded.
