A 2-1 extra-time victory versus Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico allowed Juventus to became the first side to win ten Coppa Italia titles on Wednesday evening.
The Bianconeri, who last clinched the cup in 1995, went behind to Stefan Radu’s header after only four minutes, the fastest goal Massimiliano Allegri’s men have conceded in this season’s competition.
But they soon rallied and equalised just minutes later through Giorgio Chiellini who has now bagged five career strikes against Lazio in all competitions, making them his favourite victims.
With both sides unable to break the deadlock, the final went into extra-time for the first time since 2009 and was ultimately decided by Alessandro Matri’s finish, his second in as many Coppa Italia games for the Old Lady this term.
Last night’s result means Juventus have now secured a domestic double for the third time in the club’s illustrious history, a feat previously established in 1959/60 and 1994/95.
