In their first game in three months, Juventus provided the essentials by qualifying for the Italian Cup final. But Cristiano Ronaldo’s teammates – who missed a penalty – failed to beat AC Milan (0-0), which was quickly reduced to 10.
The Juventus would have liked to show a better face, but the essential is assured. For its first match in three months, and for the comeback of football in Italy after the health crisis, the Old Lady won her ticket to the final of the Italian Cup, at the expense ofAC Milan. After a 1-1 draw in San Siro in February, Juve settled for the bare minimum to qualify in a pretty dismal 0-0 draw.
A minute of madness
However, Maurizio Sarri’s men could have folded the case after a minute of madness shortly after the quarter of an hour of play. Cristiano Ronaldo, maybe a little rusty after this period of inactivity, which sent his penalty on the post of Gianluigi Donnarumma (16th). Then, in continuity, AC Milan was reduced to 10 after the very dangerous gesture of ’Ante Rebic, kicked in the chest of Leonardo Bonucci (17th).

Despite their numerical superiority, Juve never managed to take shelter, facing Milanese deprived of Zlatan Ibrahimovic (calf), and hardly dangerous on the goal of Gianluigi Buffon. The Bianconeri will face Napoli or Inter in the final (go: 1-0), and will be able to calmly prepare for the resumption of Serie A, in ten days, on the lawn of Bologna:
