Lifting the Coppa Italia will save Inter’s problematic 2012-13 campaign, says attacking midfielder Ricky Alvarez.
The Nerazzurri have struggled in Serie A this term and their defeat against Cagliari on Sunday was their fourth from their last five games.
However, Inter, also out of the Europa League, will have a chance to reach the Italian Cup Final this week when they face Roma on Wednesday.
“Our next match, against Roma in the Coppa Italia, is really important because we can get through to the Final,” the Argentine stated.
“We really want that to turn this season around.
“It will be a tough match against Roma, but whoever plays must give everything to win and go through. The club deserves it.”
Inter will start the San Siro tie 2-1 down from the first leg.
