Roma equal record by toppling Inter

AS Roma matched Juventus's record of nine Coppa Italia wins by retaining the trophy with a 2-1 success against Serie A champions FC Internazionale Milano.

AS Roma equalled Juventus's record of nine Coppa Italia wins by retaining the trophy with a 2-1 success against Serie A champions FC Internazionale Milano.

Cup consolation
Facing the Giallorossi in the final for the fourth successive season, Inter had the chance to complete a domestic double at the Stadio Olimpico. Yet it was Roma who had the last laugh, triumphing thanks to strikes from defender Philippe Mexes and Simone Perrotta, to give Luciano Spalletti's men some consolation for losing out on the Scudetto to the Nerazzurri on the final day of the season last week.

Record-equalling win
France international Mexes ghosted unmarked into the area to strike a David Pizarro corner inside the near post in the 35th minute, while Perotta doubled the lead following a one-two with forward Mirko Vučinić eight minutes after the break. Inter's Portuguese midfielder Pelé, on as a substitute, pulled a goal back just before the hour with a shot from 25 metres but Roma held on to draw level with Juventus as the competition's most successful club.
