Venue: Stadio Olimipco
Channel: Sky Sports
Juventus will be looking to make it a fourth consecutive Coppa Italia title this evening against rivals Milan, a repeat of the 15/16 final.
Juve have won 17 of their last 20 games in the cup and are yet to concede a goal in this year’s campaign, following comfortable victories over Genoa and Torino, before overcoming Atalanta 2-0 on aggregate in the semi-finals.
As for Milan, they are looking to win the Italian Cup for the first time since the 2002/03 season. Gennaro Gattuso’s men are also yet to concede a goal following victories over Hellas Verona and an extra-time win against city rivals, Inter. The semi-final tie between Lazio was decided by penalties after no goals were scored over the two legs, with Milan coming through that 5-4 on spot-kicks.
These finals do not tend to be high-scoring games, in fact, five of the last six Coppa Italia finals have seen under 2.5 goals and two of the last three have been settled in extra-time. Gattuso will be desperate to win a title in his first season in charge of Milan and given it is against arch-rivals JUve, there will certainly be an added edge.
Milan come into the game on the back of two Serie A wins but those came on the back of six games without a win. As for Juve, they have won five of their last eight games and now look extremely close to making it seven league titles in a row.
Benedikt Howedes remains out injured, whilst Giorgio Chiellini is suspended for the final. Mario Mandzukic is still lacking match fitness so might have to settle for a place on the bench.
Milan are without Andrea Conti to long-term injury, whilst Lucas Biglia could miss out due to injury.
Potential Juventus Starting XI: Buffon; Cuadrado, Barzagli, Benatia, Sandro; Khedira, Pjanic, Matuidi; Dybala, Higuain, Costa
Potential AC Milan Starting XI: Donnarumma; Calabria, BOnucci, Romagnoli, Rodriguez; Kessie, Locatelli, Bonaventura; Suso, Cutrone, Calhanoglu
