Juventus is through to the Coppa Italia final after earning a tricky 0-0 draw against AC Milan on Friday in the second leg of the semis. Juve drew the first leg at Milan 1-1 in February but could not find its scoring touch in what was Italy's first game in months after the coronavirus pandemic.
It was that Cristiano Ronaldo penalty kick in the first leg that allowed Juve to advance on away goals where it will now face the winner of Saturday's Napoli vs. Inter Milan tie.
Ronaldo had another penalty kick in this one but hit the post 16 minutes in, and Juve played over 70 minutes with a one-man advantage following Ante Rebic's well-deserved red card moments after. Here's how it looked:
While AC Milan was in the game and had the chance to steal it, it was Juve creating chance after chance, just not finishing. Paulo Dybala had a quality look in the second half that Gianluigi Donnarumma saved well.
Juve was strong in defense and gave Milan little space, with Matthijs de Ligt commanding the backline.
The Coppa Italia final is scheduled for June 17 at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome. Juve last won it in 2018, beating Milan 4-0.
