Season overviewEdit

The summer of 2004 saw Inter choose a new coach, Roberto Mancini coming from Lazio.[1][2] Inter started the season qualifying for the Champions League group phase,[3] but also collected many draws in the league.[4][5][6][7][8]

Inter, achieved better results in cups,[9][10] made a known comeback (3–2) in a match against Sampdoria, scoring all goals in the last six minutes.[11][12] The derby with Milan was lost 1–0 which broke a positive streak, in May 2004.[13] the rivals also knocked Inter out of the Champions League, tournament in which – during the previous two-legs – Mancini's squad had been beaten by reigning champions Porto.[14][15] Inter achieved a third-place finish in the league.[16] The win of the Coppa Italia final against Roma, 3–0 on aggregate, closed the season.[17][18][19]
