It has been 13 years since the 2009-2010 season when Inter Milan won the final. At the time, under coach Jose Mourinho, Inter Milan achieved a ‘treble’ in the league, cup competitions and UCL. Having won the championship in 1964, 1965 and 2010, Inter Milan will challenge for a fourth UCL title in their career. It is the first time in six years that an Italian team has reached the UCL final since Juventus runner-up in 2017.

On this day, Inter Milan, which already had the upper hand by winning the first leg, played a fierce battle with AC Milan, who were counterattacking. The balance of the game was broken when Inter Milan scored in the second half. In the 29th minute of the second half, Lautaro Martinez, who received a pass from Romelu Lukaku, shook the net with a powerful left-footed shot, and this goal was the deciding goal. AC Milan, who allowed the first goal in the second game in addition to the loss in the first game, ended the game helplessly without being able to counterattack.

After the match, Inter Milan coach Simone Inzaghi said, “The players were perfect and they achieved the goal we expected. We will move forward towards our dream,” he said. AC Milan coach Stefano Pioli, who knelt before his local rivals at the threshold of the final, said, “It is disappointing that we failed to advance to the final. Losing in the rivalry is a sad thing.”
