  • Italian Cup final 'like FIFA World Cup' for Gattuso's AC Milan

After an even first half with few clear chances, the game changed completely in the second half and was effectively settled in a 10-minute spell.

The Coppa Italia final between Juventus and AC Milan is taking place in Stadio Olimpico, Rome.

"This team had a great journey in the Coppa Italia and gave our all, but you could see the difference in quality between the two sides".

"The Scudetto is the main target and I'll be glad if we do it here, because I had an extraordinary campaign at Roma and it's a special stadium for me", added 31-year-old ex-Roma player Benatia.

Milan have returned to form of late, winning back to back games after meeting Bologna and Verona.

Juve will be looking to win the trophy for the fifth season in a row, and for the 16th time overall, while Milan will want to take their win total in the tournament to five. The match came down to spotkicks with Milan triumphing 5-2 to lift the cup in Rome.

Bonaventura also defended goalkeeper Gigio Donnarumma after two blunders on the night. However, that came after a league low - a 1-0 loss at home to bottom side Benevento.

Medhi Benatia was the unlikely hero for Massimiliano Allegri's side, the defender scoring twice from corners to help Juventus secure the trophy for a fourth successive season.

After the final whistle, Milan captain Leonardo Bonucci and Juventus counterpart Gianluigi Buffon attempted to console Donnarumma.

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.

Also like Juve, Milan have lost just one game in their last six.
