2 Min Read

Cristiano Ronaldo missed a kick from the penalty spot, however Juventus still qualified for the final of the 2019/20 Coppa Italia after holding 10-man AC Milan to a 0-0 home draw in Friday’s second-leg semi-final.

The Turin giant progressed to the final on the away goals rule after playing 1-1 in the first-leg at the San Siro in February, before the Italian league was suspended due to the outbreak of the coronavirus.

Juventus were awarded a penalty on 16 minutes after consultation with VAR but Ronaldo drove his effort into the woodwork.

A minute later Milan were reduced to 10 men after Ante Rebic was sent off for a reckless challenge.

The Serie A current leaders will be gunning for a record 14th Coppa Italia title after last winning the competition in 2018.

They will face the winner of the second semi-final between Inter Milan and Napoli which comes up on Saturday 13 June.

Napoli go into the return fixture on the back of a 1-0 first-leg win at the San Siro back in February.

While Napoli will be looking for a first Coppa Italia title since 2014, Inter will hope to qualify for the final and emerge champions for the first time since 2011.
