The Bianconeri brushed aside Pro Patria (5-0) in the first round but were then made to tough out victories against Genoa (2-1) and Padova (1-0) in the following two rounds to secure a place in the semis. In the last-four clash against Modena, Juventus all but booked their spot in the tournament final by the interval after Sentimenti III, Bellini and a Foni penalty provided a near unassailable three-goal cushion at the halfway mark.
A two-legged final was then scheduled to take place between Milan and the Bianconeri in late June. The first encounter in Milan saw the visitors take the lead against the run of play via Bellini’s strike just after the restart. However, Juve were still very much under the cosh and the Rossoneri’s relentless pressure eventually took its toll when Capello grabbed a last-gasp equaliser and took the sides to Turin on level pegging. Serbian forward Lushta stepped up to the plate on the biggest of stages and produced an inspired performance at the Stadio Comunale, notching up a decisive hat-trick to guide Juventus to a resounding 4-1 triumph and a second domestic cup success.
