Inter, Roma to Battle for Coppa Italia

Form has held in the Coppa Italia semifinals.  Serie A's top two teams will meet in the May 24 final when Inter Milan face Roma for the fourth consecutive year.  Roma's 1-1 draw with Catania today was enough to see them through 2-1 on aggregate.  Yesterday, Inter defeated Lazio 2-0 to win on aggregate by the same score.

Roma took last year's Coppa after Inter captured the previous two.  This year's tournament brings a new format to Italy- a single game final at the Stadio Olympico, abandoning the old two-legged format.
