The two-legged semi-finals would see the Bianconeri taking on Bergamo side Atalanta while Milan would face Lazio with cup final spots on the line.
In the first leg, the Bianconeri would take the advantage after just three minutes as Higuain would score his second TIM Cup goal this season. On his return from injury, Gianluigi Buffon would make a stunning penalty save as well to preserve a 1-0 victory to take back to Turin.
The return leg would be a very tense affair as a game Atalanta side came in with plenty of strong play. The Bianconeri defense would stand stout, however, and Miralem Pjanic's 75th minute penalty sealed the deal and passage to a fourth consecutive cup final for Massimiliano Allegri's side!
For Milan, the semi-finals would be an extremely tight and goal-less affair against Lazio with neither side finding a breakthrough after 150 minutes of play. The Rossoneri would win a stunning see-saw shootout to book passage for a return to Rome.
