CjAqKiSW0AENjfVJuventus beat AC Milan at the Stadio Olimpico on Saturday night to win the Coppa Italia final.

The Rossoneri started the better side and put pressure on Juventus in the first 45 minutes, but hardly any of Milan's shots were good enough to be a threat to the Bianconeri. The second half was not enough to decide a winner, and despite Milan trying harder, Alvaro Morata's first touch of the game in the extra time gave Juventus their 11th Coppa Italia.

Juventus

Neto – 6 – Confident

Not that Milan managed to shoot on target often, but when they did he was ready to control their efforts.

Daniele Rugani – 6.5 – Secure

The physical battle with Bacca was lost at times, and he got a foolish yellow card in the extra time. But overall he showed calm and great positioning.

Andrea Barzagli – 6.5 – Veteran

A clean display in covering up at the back, with the usual tactical knowledge. Milan were able to shoot only from a distance.

Giorgio Chiellini – 7 – Strong

Defensively, nobody passed from his area. He then showed his limits when it came to playing the ball.

Stephan Lichtsteiner – 6.5 – Express

A regular threat for Milan going forward in the first half, the problem is he didn’t have many teammates to deliver the ball to. He then had a good chance with a header in the second half. One of the best of Juventus until the substitution.

Mario Lemina – 5.5 – Suffocated

Showed glimpses of quality, but also struggled to keep up with the rhythm imposed by the Rossoneri midfield for most of the game. When the Milan midfield trio ran out of batteries he then managed to have some good runs.

Hernanes – 5 – Invisible

A ghost for about 60 minutes, until he tried a long-range curler that went wide. He tried to make his presence useful but was sucked up in Milan’s pressure.

Paul Pogba – 5 – Missing

The first half are possibly the worst 45 minutes ever played by Pogba this season: evrything he tried to do went the wrong way. The second half started in the same way, but was then a crescendo and started showing his skills in the extra time. Nonetheless, a negative Pogba on the whole.

Patrice Evra – 5.5 – Tired

Just unable to get into the game, and failing to cope with Milan’s pace. He appeared to be out of energy after a long season.

Paulo Dybala – 5.5 – Ineffective

As usual, the offensive playmaker of Juve. He dictated the team’s efforts, but struggled like everyone in the first 45 minutes. He then showed some signs of being tired and was often in offside or easily stopped. Not his best night.

Mario Mandzukic – 5.5 – Lonely

Completely out of the game in the first half. Did better in the rest of the game, but just did not have the assistance to be dangerous.

Substitutes:

Alex Sandro – 5.5 – Ghost

Immediately showed a different energy to that of Evra, then quickly disappeared from the game.

Juan Cuadrado – 6.5 – Assist-man

Initially struggled to find space to use his speed, but when he was given space he was decisive, serving Morata the assist for the game’s only goal. After that he was slightly distracted at the back, but his assist remains crucial.

Alvaro Morata – 8 – Decisive

The man of cup games, the man of decisive goals strikes again. The first ball he touched went in for the winner.
