Coppa Italia

PIRLO REACTION TO SEMIFINAL SUCCESS OVER INTER

Juventus are in the final of the Coppa Italia for the 20th time after they followed their 2-1 first-leg win over Inter at San Siro with a 0-0 draw at Allianz Stadium.

This is what Andrea Pirlo had to say after the second leg of the semi-final.

“I hoped to get to this stage of my debut campaign and be in the last 16 of the Champions League, have won the Super Cup and reached the final of the Coppa Italia, but we haven't done anything yet so we have to keep working away and stay focused.

“I'm lucky to have four excellent centre-backs and they're all doing well. We played well today because Inter hardly had any shots on goal. We had the best chances and [Samir] Handanovic was the best player on the pitch.

“We defend in a 4-4-2 but mix it up when we're building moves depending on the opponents.”
