Juventus 0-0 Inter Milan (2-1 agg): Old Lady produce defensive masterclass to book spot in Coppa Italia final

Juventus seal their place in the Coppa Italia final after holding off visitors Inter Milan to a 0-0 draw in their semi-final, second leg on Tuesday, closing off a date with either Napoli or Atalanta with a 2-1 success on aggregate.

Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez had opportunities to get Inter back in the tie in the first half, while Cristiano Ronaldo came closest to adding to Juve’s aggregate advantage in the opening period, having scored both of their goals in the first leg.

After the break, Ronaldo turned on the style and was only denied another goal in the tie by two fine saves from Inter goalkeeper Samir Handanovic.

Inter threw everything at Juve late on but the veteran keeper Gianluigi Buffon and his defence stood firm to secure a spot in the showpiece match against the winners of Wednesday’s semi, with Atalanta hosting Napoli after a 0-0 draw in the first leg.

Both teams will now turn their attentions back to Serie A, with Juventus facing Napoli at the weekend. Meanwhile, Inter will face Lazio on Sunday.
