There’s still a whole lot left to play for across Italian football in the next couple of weeks and last night, we got one step closer to finding out who will lift the Coppa Italia this season – one of the most prestigious trophies you can win across the country.

Juventus went into their second leg against Fiorentina with a 1-0 lead and in the end, they were the ones who kept their cool and secured a 2-0 win to progress 3-0 on aggregate.

Soaking up the pressure

Fiorentina had 69% and 17 shots on goal but as a result of Juve scoring just after the half hour mark, it didn’t really matter. Regardless of what the hosts were throwing at them, it just didn’t seem as if they were under any kind of sustained pressure. Juve soaked it up and spat Fiorentina back out again, showcasing the sort of well-rounded cohesion that first put them at the top of the mountain.

Shaken Fiorentina

Whether it was the first goal or the pressure of the situation, Fiorentina looked like they just didn’t know what to do. They were quite clearly the more desperate of the two sides to reach the final and yet, they were also the ones who lacked composure and seemingly focus. They have a nice structure in place but it’ll take an almighty effort for them to work their way back to a level of prominence in Serie A.

Inter await

Inter Milan cruised to a 3-0 win over rivals AC Milan on Tuesday in their own semi-final second leg. It’ll give them the psychological advantage in the race for the title but in addition to that, it also proves that they can beat just about anyone on their best day. Juve aren’t going to be afraid of what Inter can throw at them but in equal measure, they’ll know how much of a boost it’d be to lift a piece of silverware after a troubled league campaign.
