MILAN - Inter beat Lazio 1-0 at the Giuseppe Meazza to win the Tim Cup quarter-final tie 2-1 on aggregate and set up a two-legged semi-final clash with Udinese.

Dejan Stankovic, who scored at the Olimpico last week and against Lecce in Serie A Week 22 last Sunday, notched his third in as many games as Inter stretch their unbeaten run to twenty matches without defeat.

The Nerazzurri had the lion's share of scoring chances in the first half, Adriano going close after 20 minutes when the Brazilian met a Solari through ball then slotted inches wide with just Ballotta to beat.

Minutes later Inter Primavera striker Matteo Momentè, making third first-team appearance after run-outs against Parma in the cup and Rangers in the Champions League earlier in the season, sent a diagonal shot into the side-netting as Inter edged closer to an opener.

It came on 37 minutes when Stankovic beat Ballotta with a fierce right-footed drive from the edge of the Lazio box. In a burst of attacking activity before half time the Serb midfielder crashed another effort from the distance over the bar, and could have doubled the score 16 minutes into the second half with a first-time shot from Pizarro's corner that finished just wide.
