The protagonist of the Italian team’s last UCL championship was Inter Milan in 2010. At that time, Inter Milan defeated Bayern Munich (Germany) 2-0 and reached the top. Previously, Inter Milan won two consecutive championships in the 1964-65 season. Recapturing the top this year will be the fourth win in the team’s career.
It is also the first time in six years that an Italian club has reached the UCL final since Juventus runner-up in 2017. Of Europe’s five ‘big leagues’, only Italian clubs have failed to reach the finals in the last five years. Teams from Spain and England twice, the German club also reached the top in 2020, while France finished runners-up that year.
Head coach Simone Inzaghi was delighted after confirming the final, saying, “The players were perfect, and they achieved the goal they had hoped for.” He said, “We started in the group of death with Bayern Munich (Germany) and Barcelona (Spain), but we broke expectations and made it to the final. Most of them would not have believed it, but after the group draw, we already believed that we would reach the finals,” he said, adding, “We will move forward toward a bigger dream.”
