Milan: Mattia Destro scored twice in a 3-2 win against Inter Milan as Roma booked an Italian Cup final date with bitter rivals Lazio on Wednesday with a 5-3 aggregate success.

And the 22-year-old striker maintained his superb Cup form with two more as Roma booked a May 25 date with their neighbours which, given the recent spell of trouble between rival supporters from the capital, could be a feisty affair.
