Tim Cup: Fiorentina 0-1 Inter (agg. 0-2)

Samuel Eto'o adds to Milito's goal in first leg as Nerazzurri book place in national cup final

FLORENCE - Samuel Eto'o scored his 15th of the season as Inter beat Fiorentina 1-0 at the Stadio Artemio Franchi to complete a 2-0 aggregate semi-final victory and qualify for a fifth Coppa Italia final in six seasons.

José Mourinho's men will face Roma or Udinese, who play their return leg next week, in the competition's showpiece match at the Stadio Olimpico on 5 May.

In the second meeting between the two teams in four days after Saturday's 2-2 Serie A draw, Fiorentina had the lion's share of the first-half chances but the Inter defence and Julio Cesar let nothing through.

The Viola's first-half efforts were cancelled out in one fell swoop in the 57th minute. Eto'o controlled Thiago Motta's perfectly-weighted through ball with his right foot and beat Frey with his left to leave the hosts needing three goals.
