A 3-0 aggregate victory over fierce rivals AC Milan meanwhile earned Inter a return to the final for the first time since their Treble-winning campaign in 2009-10.
As the two sides begin to dream of lifting the prestigious continental trophy, we tell you all you need to know about the 2023 final.
When is the 2023 Champions League final?
The 2023 Champions League final will take place on Saturday, June 10.
This date is later than last season's showpiece, held on May 28, due to the change in the domestic football calendar thanks to the World Cup held last November and December in Qatar.

Where is the 2023 Champions League final?
Turkey will host the 2023 Champions League final, with the game held at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul.
The venue was opened in 2002, initially built for the country's attempt to host the 2008 Olympics, which was ultimately awarded to Beijing, China.
Home to the Turkish national team, it will be the second time the ground has held the Champions League final, having been the location for the epic 2005 encounter between Milan and Liverpool.
Known as the Miracle of Istanbul, the Reds came back from a 3-0 half-time scoreline to win 3-2 on penalties after extra-time.
Istanbul had been scheduled to host the 2020 showpiece, before the coronavirus pandemic resulted in the match being played at the Estadio da Luz in Lisbon, Portugal.
Then in 2021, the marquee fixture was once again moved to Portugal, this time to the Estadio do Dragao in Porto.
UEFA state the stadium capacity to be over 75,000, with the venue named after Mustafa Kemal Ataturk — the first president of Turkey.
