The second leg of the semi-final ended in a goalless draw but Juve won the tie on aggregate 2-1.
Inter put some early pressure on Bianconeri in need of away goals and it almost looked like everything fell in place for them. The home side couldn’t withstand the intense pressing of Inter, which eventually disrupted their build-up play.
Furthermore, Inter spelt danger whenever Romelu Lukaku held off the ball and laid it off to Achraf Hakimi, whose lung-bursting runs were too hot to handle for Juve.
Nonetheless, the lack of a final product and a disappointing display by Christian Eriksen let Inter down.
As far as Juve were concerned, they could have killed the game earlier if one of Ronaldo’s handful of shots entered into the nets. The Portuguese ace, who scored twice in the first leg, was denied multiple times by Samir Handanovic, who was arguably the best Inter player on the outfield.
Andrea Pirlo might have endured a tough run in Serie A but his record in cup competition looks impressive and he has entered his first-ever in his debut season in Turin.
On the other hand, the titles keep evading Antonio Conte since he moved to San Sirio in the summer of 2019. Now the only chance for the Italian gaffer is to have a crack at Scudetto.
