Napoli beat Inter Milan 1-0 at the San Siro in the first leg of their Coppa Italia semi-final clash, thanks to a Fabian Ruiz's superb second-half strike.
The visitors, who are in a poor run of form in Serie A, are taking home the advantage in a match which Antonio Conte's Inter deserved a win but was a little lacking in front of goal with Romelu Lukaku being silent.
Inter was hoping to kill the tie in the first leg after its 4-2 derby win last time out, but Napoli held out comfortably to gain the upper hand ahead of the return leg on March 5.
In the other semi-final, AC Milan hosts Juventus today, with the return scheduled for March 4.
1 - The only time Inter and Napoli faced in a two legged knockout stage in the Coppa Italia was back in the 1997 semifinals, when Napoli progressed after the penalties. Memory. #InterNapoli— OptaPaolo (@OptaPaolo) February 12, 2020
