Fiorentina joins Inter in qualifying for Italian Cup final
Fiorentina has reached the final of the Coppa Italia for the 11th time. The six-time winner held Cremonese at 0-0 in Florence, which was sufficient after the 2-0 victory in Lombardy.

After halftime, Cremonese, who earlier eliminated Napoli and AS Roma, were dangerous on a couple of game-reserves and Nicolás González was close to 1-0 with a fine curl. However, the visitors did not score and the Stadio Artemio Franchi celebrated its first final since 2014.
Napoli were too strong 3-1 in that 2014 final. In the final match on May 24 in Rome awaits eight-time winner Internazionale, which recorded a 1-0 victory at home in Milan on Wednesday after the 1-1 at Juventus.
