Juventus vs. Fiorentina score: Federico Bernardeschi and Danilo carry Bianconeri to cup final vs. Inter Milan

Juventus are through to the Coppa Italia final and will face Inter Milan on May 11 (Paramount+). The Bianconeri took care of business at home with a 2-0 win to defeat Fiorentina 3-0 on aggregate in the semifinal. Thanks to the goal scored by Federico Bernardeschi and by Danilo right at the last moment of the match, Juve will make their third consecutive trip to the final after hoisting the cup title last season against Atalanta. Fiorentina pushed hard in the second half, but it wasn't enough and Juventus scored the second goal in the dying moments to really put this one out of reach for good. Juventus are currently the club with most Coppa titles (14) and will pad their impressive mark. 

What reaching the final means

Juventus will be seeking back-to-back cup titles and have not lost a final since 2020 against Napoli in penalties. For a team with a storied history like Juventus, collecting trophies is part of the expectation and it's no different in this competition as no Italian side has more cup trophies in their cabinet than the Bianconeri.

This season has not been easy at all as Massimiliano Allegri's second stint as head coach started with the farewell of Cristiano Ronaldo and a slow start in the league. They lost track from the top of the table in the first few months of the season but then their season completely changed since January when the club signed Denis Zakaria and Dusan Vlahović. Juventus were able to score some crucial points that led them to climb back to fourth place which would give them access to Champions League next season if they hold on. They were also in the race for the title until they lost to Inter Milan. Juve's Champions League campaign proved to be a disappointment once again as they were eliminated by Spanish side Villarreal, who later defeated Bayern Munich and advanced to the UCL semifinals against Liverpool. You add all that into the mix and the thought of winning the Coppa Italia can make this season look a tad bit better for Juventus, who will seek revenge against Inter Milan, the same team that won the Supercoppa Italiana against Allegri's side in January with a late-winner from Alexis Sanchez. 

Allegri to make fifth appearance

Allegri is considered one of the masters of this competition as he reached his fifth career Coppa Italia final as Juventus coach. He has never lost a Coppa final in his first four trips as Bianconeri boss, with wins in 2015 and 2017 against Lazio and in 2016 and 2018 against AC Milan. Allegri will face Simone Inzaghi for the second time in this final since 2017 when current Nerazzurri coach was in charge of Lazio. This final has a special meaning for Allegri, because it's his only opportunity to win a trophy in his first season back after leaving the club in May 2019. Starting the new cycle with Juventus winning the Coppa Italia would definitely be a good step in the right direction and a good starting point for the upcoming season when Juventus will have the obligation to fight for the title race.
