Coppa Italia Final 

Result: Juventus 4-0 AC Milan

Date: 09 May 2018

Venue: Stadio Olimpico

Juventus were crowned Coppa Italia champions after thrashing AC Milan 4-0 in the final at the Stadio Olimpico on Wednesday evening.

The game's first chance arrived after nine minutes as Patrick Cutrone combined with Hakan Calhanoglu before seeing his strike parried away by Gianluigi Buffon.

Buffon was called into action once again on 31 minutes as the veteran shot-stopper showed quick reflexes to keep out Suso's deflected effort from distance.

Juve, meanwhile, struggled to carve out clear-cut chances in the first half and were restricted to efforts from distance, none of which were troubling for Gianluigi Donnarumma.

Unfortunately, that proved to be the trend for the rest of the first half as the sides went into the break goalless.

However, the Old Lady broke the deadlock 10 minutes into the second half as un-marked Mehdi Benatia headed past a helpless Donnarumma.

The lead was doubled on 61 minutes as Douglas Costa's strike was spilled into the net Donnarumma, who should have done better with the effort.

Juve netted a third goal four minutes later, with Benatia completing his brace with a close range after another handling error from the goalkeeper.

It got worse for Milan with 15 minutes remaining as striker Nikola Kalinić headed Mirlam Pjanic's cross into his own net to make it 4-0 to Juve.

Milan showed no real attacking attacking intent and were completely outclassed in the second half, as the Oldy Lady saw out the remaining stages to clinch the cup.
