MILAN - Three goals, four first team debuts, and a double 'derby d'Italia' on the horizon.
Inter beat Reggina 3-0 at home to complete a 7-1 aggregate victory and set up a Tim Cup quarter-final meeting with Juventus.
Reggina's Emmanuel Cascione had a hand in the first two goals, turning into his own net twelve minutes after Hernan Crespo's deflected opener.
Cesar completed the scoring in added time at the end of the second half.
Roberto Mancini handed goalkeeper Enrico Alfonso his first start between the posts, with Primavera pair Fatic and Bolzoni in defence and midfield.
Two more youngsters, Balotelli and Pelé, had shots blocked by Novakovic as Inter dominated the early stages.
Solari then curled wide before Balotelli narrowly missed from a long-range drive.
Reggina's first chance came on the half hour when Koris forced Alfonso into a tipped save with a well taken shot from distance.
But Inter were always in control and took the lead in the 33rd through Crespo, whose 20-yard shot went in off Cascione.
Crespo went close to a second on 41 minutes, controlling a precise long-range pass from the impressive Pelé before sending his angled shot inches wide.
The Nerazzurri made extra sure of their place in the last eight on the stroke of half time.
Cascione intercepted Balotelli's pass for Crespo and unwittingly turned into his own net.
Inter made a half time switch, with Luca Siligardi replacing captain Dejan Stankovic.
The Nerazzurri almost scored again seconds after the break, Balotelli's overhead kick finishing on the roof of the net after Crespo lobbed Novakovic.
Reggina's best chance of a reply fell to Tullberg who tested Alfonso with a bicycle kick.
In the closing stages Mancini brought on Marco Filippini and his son Filippo Mancini for their first team debuts.
Inter weren't done and Cesar added a fine goal in added time.
The Brazilian collected a pass from Balotelli, made a solo run into the box and lifted over Novakovic from the tightest of angles.
