The Nerazzurri were concerned that they wouldn't have one of their key players due to a controversial suspension, but now have received good news.

On Wednesday, Inter will welcome Juventus for part two of their Coppa Italia semi-finals tie. The first leg finished as a one-all draw in Turin in a rather ill-tempered match that saw several players sent off, including striker Romelu Lukaku.

The Belgian international endured terrible racist abuse during the match from some sections of Juventus fans, but mostly kept his cool until the very late stages of the game. After scoring a crucial penalty, Lukaku raised his finger to his lips in a "silence" gesture towards Juventus supporters, and thus received a second yellow card after the referee judged it to be a "provocative" action.

Naturally, given what the player had to deal with throughout the game, Inter was not impressed with that result, and appealed Lukaku's suspension. Initially, their attempts to appeal to the FIGC to overturn his ban were rejected - until the organization's president, Gabriele Gravina reportedly decided to personally get involved.

According to reports from Italy, Gravina decided to nullify the FIGC's decision on Saturday, meaning that Lukaku will be available for Simone Inzaghi's side on Wednesday. Gravina noted that his decision was based on a desire to make a statement against racism, and thus agreed that Lukaku's actions were a result of mitigating circumstances and hence, his ban should be cancelled.

With that matter resolved, Inter will be firmly focused on the task ahead as they hope to take one step further towards featuring in this season's final. Should the Nerazzurri win this tie, they will take on the winners of the Cremonese and Fiorentina tie on May 24th.
