The 1981–82 season saw Inter win the Coppa Italia, the second in four years and the third overall. The final opponent was Torino, which were beaten 1–0 in first leg and drew 1–1 in the second. Inter showed some new faces, such as the young Giuseppe Bergomi and Riccardo Ferri (both born in 1963), Salvatore Bagni and Aldo Serena, who returned after several loans.
Inter also reached the round of 32 in UEFA Cup – giving up in front of Dinamo Bucharest during overtime – and achieved fifth place in the domestic league, but the triumph in the Coppa Italia resulted in a qualification for the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup.
