The Argentine’s 95th minute scorching headed goal ousted the Bianconeri and set-up a reunion in the final with the Giallorossi, with whom he spent spent two seasons from 2011 until 2013.

The capital club will also come up against their former sporting director, Ramon Monchi. The Spaniard spent two years with Roma from 2017 thru 2019. Although he helped construct the team that nearly made it to a Champions League final, he faced enormous criticism for his poor handling of the transfer market.
