Soccer: Serie A celebrates trio in finals: “Italy dominates Europe”

That has not been the case for 29 years: all three European Cup finals are played with Italian participation. In the land of Calcio, they are mighty proud of Inter, Roma and Florence.

Italian football celebrates its Serie A trio in the three European Cup finals. After Inter Milan in the Champions League, AS Roma in the Europa League and AC Fiorentina in the Conference League also reached the finals on Thursday.

“Italy has already won thanks to these clubs,” said association president Gabriele Gravina and announced himself as a guest in all three games.

With five clubs, Italy had already provided the largest country share of the semi-finalists in the three competitions. Now, for the first time in 29 years, each of the three continental club finals will be played with Italian participation. “Finali d’Italia” was the euphoric headline in the “Gazzetta dello Sport”. “Italy dominates in Europe,” said the “Corriere dello Sport”.

Gravina also praises Milan and Juventus

In 1994, AC Milan won the Champions League with a splendid 4-0 win over FC Barcelona in the final. City rivals Inter secured the triumph in the UEFA Cup against Casino Salzburg with 1-0 victories in both legs. Only in the Cup Winners’ Cup, which still existed at the time, did AC Parma lose 1-0 to Arsenal.

Italy’s head of the association, Gravina, also praised the two clubs that failed to make it through to the semi-finals. Milan had failed in the so-called “Euroderby” of the premier class at Inter. Juventus lost out to Sevilla in extra time in the Europa League. The Spaniards will now meet Roma, in the Champions League Inter will face top favorites Manchester City. Fiorentina takes on West Ham United.
