Italian Cup: with a double from Lautaro Martínez, Inter kept the title

A double by Argentine Lautaro Martínez was decisive for the consecration of Inter Milan, which this Wednesday beat Fiorentina 2-1 in the Italian Cup final, played at the Olympic Stadium in Rome before a crowd.

Another Argentine, Nicolás González, put the Florentine team ahead with just 3 minutes to play, but Inter turned it around thanks to goals from Martínez, who scored on 29 and 37, also from the initial part.

With these two goals, the former Racing attacker reached 101 victories with Inter and also his fifth title with the Milan team since his arrival in 2018.

In addition, this victory is a boost for Inter, who could not fight for the Italian league -which consecrated Napoli- but in a few days they will play the Champions League final against Manchester City.

In this decisive match of the Italian Cup, Fiorentina got off to a better start, took the lead and then dominated the actions, although by the middle of the initial stage Inter recovered and went on to win thanks to goals from Martínez: first with a cross shot, then with a powerful volley.

During the break, Fiorentina attacked in search of an equalizer, coming close on a couple of occasions, to such an extent that Handanovic saved Inter with good interventions.

Finally, the brand new champion maintained the advantage he had achieved and was thus able to lift the cup, the ninth of his extensive record.

In addition to Martínez at Inter, Joaquín Correa played, who replaced the scorer, while at Fiorentina González and the former River, Lucas Martínez Quarta, were the starters.
