MLS All-Star opponent Juventus capture fourth straight Coppa Italia crown

Juventus secured the first leg of a probable national twice as a second-half blitz, aided by two Gianluigi Donnarumma howlers, saw the holders ease into a 4-0 victory over AC Milan in the Coppa Italia final.

Juventus scored three goals in a stunning eight-minute spell to seize control of the game, defender Medhi Benatia netting two of them as Milan crumbled under pressure at set-piece situations.

Douglas Costa's long-range strike was sandwiched between Benatia's brace, while Milan's misery was complete when substitute Nikola Kalinic headed into his own net.

Juventus boss Allegri elected to keep regular Brazilian left-back Alex Sandro on the bench and put his faith in Asamoah and other than one big mistake, the 29-year-old put in a good shift.

Kalidou Koulibaly was sent off early as Napoli's title hopes took a severe knock on Sunday with a Giovanni Simeone hat-trick giving Fiorentina a shock 3-0 win which allows Juventus to close in on the Serie A title.

AC Milan head coach Gennaro Gattuso said it is up to the club to decide on the future of star goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma.

Donnarumma then had Costa's shot on his fingers but the ball fell through his hands.

Milan came closest when Juventus midfielder Blaise Matuidi almost scored an own-goal, hitting the post with a failed clearance. We can now celebrate a little.

Winning the Coppa Italia would have given the Rossoneri direct qualification into the Europa League.

Unfortunately, that proved to be the trend for the rest of the first half as the sides went into the break goalless. "Now we have to wrap up the league title".
