      Gabetta's lads overturn their first-leg defeat and beat the Nerazzurri 2-0 to push through to the Final Eight with the chance of a tilt at the title

      Juventus' Giovanissimi Nazionali side have secured their spot among the eight best teams in their age group in Italy – and they're not done yet.

      Thanks to a performance in which they were virtually flawless technically, tactically and athletically, the Bianconeri Under-15s guided by coach Gabetta managed to come back from the 2-1 defeat suffered in last week's round of 16 first-leg match in Milan. They put two goals past Inter today to book their place in the Final Eight in Chianciano Terme.

      The goals from Goh and Merio in the second half were no less than the Juventus boys deserved after the way they performed over the 180 minutes, as they showed the maturity and tactical discipline needed to qualify.

      Today's game – played on the Ale&Ricky pitch in Vinovo – was an even affair in the first half, but the Bianconeri edged it thanks to their greater determination.

      The Final Eight will kick off on 20 June with the Giovanissimi Nazionali Scudetto as the final prize for the winners. The eight best sides in Italy will face off in two groups of four (Juve have been placed in the group containing Roma, Napoli and Lazio), with the top two in each group then making up the semi-final pairings.

      You'll find details of the upcoming Giovanissimi Nazionali fixtures, as always, on Juventus.com.
