Juventus Are Through To The Coppa Italia Final Ahead Of AC Milan Based On The Away Goal Rule.

Juventus are through to the Coppa Italia final based on the away goal rule, following a 0-0 stalemate draw with AC Milan in the semi-final second leg at the empty Allianz staduim on friday.

The dramatic match saw the much awaited return of Italian football after 93 days of no footballing activities in the country due to the global health crisis caused by coronavirus.

Cristiano Ronaldo missed a penalty for the first time for Juventus this season which hit the post, and Ante Rebic was later shown a red card in the 16th minutes for a rough tackle on Danilo.

Juventus who played over 70 minutes of the game with a one-man advantage, qualified on an away goal advantage they had in the first leg at the San Siro.

Cristiano Ronaldo succesful penalty kick had cancelled Ante Rebic early goal which saw the first leg ended in a controversial 1-1 draw last February.

The Bianconeri will now look forward to winning their fifth title in six years come June 17 at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome. They will face the winner of Saturday's tie between Napoli vs. Inter Milan.

Napoli won the first leg 1-0 over Antonio Conte's Inter Milan at San Siro and the second leg is set to be played on Saturday evening.

Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri speaking after the game with Rai Sport was asked if he’d prefer to face Napoli or Inter in the Coppa Italia Final.
“Clearly after three months, getting back to the touchline and seeing the teams out there is a good sensation, even if it’s not the same without the fans,”

“The important thing is that we are in the Final, then tomorrow we’ll see. Napoli, like us, have lost the home advantage because it’s in an empty stadium. The first leg result might be a slight advantage for Inter, but in truth it’s pretty open still.”
