GENOA - Luis Figo set them up and Nicolas Burdisso and Hernan Crespo grabbed the goals to give Inter a 3-0 victory over Sampdoria at the Marassi and keep Mancini's men on course for a third consecutive Coppa Italia triumph.

Inter overpowered the Blucerchiati with a dominant display to extend their unbeaten run to 25 games and take a healthy lead into next Thursday's semi-final return.

Burdisso, who netted twice against Messina in the round of sixteen, hit the target in either half to become top scorer in the domestic cup competition this season.

The Argentine defender flicked home Figo's inswinging cross from a 40-yard free kick to put Inter ahead in the 9th minute.

Crespo lifted his tally for the season to double figures on 24 minutes, rising in the box to head home another Figo cross.

The Nerazzurri then soaked up a period of Samp pressure, with Francesco Toldo making a succession of saves from Quagliarella and Flachi.

Burdisso put an end to Samp's run of seven straight cup wins 11 minutes after the restart with a bullet header past Zotti from a Luis Figo corner.

Spurred on by a vociferous crowd, Novellino's side pushed to reduce the arrears, but Toldo emerged the victor from his personal duel with Quagliarella, with more vital blocks from the Blucerchiati fantasista.
