Internazionale defeated Udinese 3-2 on aggregate to reach the Coppa Italia final.
Coppa Italia holders Internazionale have reached this season's final after a 2-2 second leg draw at Udinese gave them a 3-2 aggregate victory.
Former Real Madrid winger Santiago Solari added to his first-leg winner by giving the Nerazzurri the lead on eight minutes of the Tuesday afternoon encounter at a sparsely-attended Stadio Friuli.
Udinese gave themselves some hope in the tie when Christian Obodo scored on 83 minutes, but former Udinese man David Pizarro restored Inter's advantage three minutes later.
The home earned the consolation of a second-leg draw with a Vincenzo Iaquinta penalty on 89 minutes, but Roberto Mancini's side held on to reach the final.
Inter now face the winner of Wednesday's other two-legged semi-final tie between Roma and Palermo at Stadio Olimpico, with the Sicilians leading 2-1 from the first leg.
