  • Inter Milan loses to Bologna in the round of 16 of the Italian Cup.
  • While Yann Sommer sits on the bench at Inter, two Swiss players play an important role for Bologna: Michel Aebischer leads the team as captain, and Dan Ndoye scores the decisive goal in extra time.

At Inter Milan, Yann Sommer got a well-deserved break in the Coppa Italia. The Swiss was replaced by Emil Odero and watches from the bench as no goals were scored between his Inter side and FC Bologna in normal time. The best chance for that goes to star striker Lautaro Martinez, who missed a penalty kick against Federico Ravaglia. As soon as extra time began, the bell rang in Bologna’s penalty area: Carlos Augusto headed home in the 92nd minute to give the Serie A leaders the lead.

But Bologna, led by Swiss captain Michel Aebischer, is not giving up. In the 112th minute of the match, Sam Bokema equalized. Summer substitute Odero, of all people, does not form a good figure by going into the corner. But it’s not the end of the game yet. Because Joshua Zirkzee sent Dan Ndoye on his way in the 116th minute of the match. The speedy Swiss gets up and away, remains cool in front of goal and skillfully fires the ball over goalkeeper Odero.

Bologna is now in the quarter-finals of the Italian Cup. But for Inter, the end was a bitter disappointment. Last season, Inter won the championship and cup double.
