Ivan Perisic scored an extra-time brace as he fired Inter Milan to Coppa Italia victory in the Rome final on Wednesday night.

Nicolo Barella gave Inter a sixth-minute lead, but two quickfire goals from Juventus in a space of two second-half minutes seemed to turn the final on its head.

First, Alex Sandro scored five minutes after the restart to pull his side level before Dusan Vlahovic fired them ahead two minutes later.

Inter though stepped up and equalised from the spot with 10 minutes to go through Hakam Calhanoglu to force extra time.

Inter got a second penalty in the ninth minute of extra time, with Perisic easily burying it to give them a 3-2 lead.

The Croatian then scored a stunning goal three minutes later to all but seal victory for the Serie A defending champions.

To compound the problems for Juventus, coach Massimo Allegri was sent off, with his players forced to drag him off the touchline.
