FULL TIME: Atalanta 0 – 1 Juventus

Serbian striker Dusan Vlahovic scored within the first five minutes and it proved to be the only goal of the game as Juventus won a record 15th Coppa Italia by beating Atalanta 1-0. It is only the third goal that Vlahovic has scored since the start of April. It is the fifth time that manager Max Allegri has won the trophy for the Turin giants. Atalanta will now focus on the Europa League final.

Dusan Vlahovic’s early goal proved enough to clinch Coppa Italia glory for Juventus as a 1-0 victory in Rome extended Gian Piero Gasperini’s wait for his first Atalanta trophy.

Juventus led inside just four minutes, Vlahovic showing strength and composure to hold off Isak Hien and finish after racing onto an Andrea Cambiaso through ball.

Both sides were denied by the woodwork late on, Ademola Lookman thumping the post and Fabio Miretti striking the bar, while Vlahovic had a second goal disallowed for the tightest of offsides as Juve claimed a deserved victory.

It offered a bright ending to an otherwise disappointing season and potentially the last trophy for Massimiliano Allegri, and the Bianconeri coach went out with a bang as he reacted to a stoppage-time red card by furiously ripping off his jacket and tie.

Juve extended their record Coppa Italia haul to 15 trophies, while Atalanta’s wait for their first since 1963 goes on and Gasperini will hope that the Europa League final against Bayer Leverkusen can finally deliver him a career-first trophy.
