Italian Cup

Juventus beat Lazio to win Italian Cup

MNA Sports Desk: Dani Alves and Leonardo Bonucci struck one apiece as treble-chasing Juventus secured a record third successive Italian Cup with a 2-0 victory over Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico on Wednesday.

Juventus, who won a league and Cup double the past two seasons, can clinch a record sixth consecutive Serie A title—and a record third double—with victory at home to Crotone on Sunday.

Massimiliano Allegri’s men also face Real Madrid in the Champions League final in Cardiff on June—and on this showing the Spanish giants will have cause for concern.

Lazio were competing in their third final in five years, hoping to inflict a measure of revenge after Juve beat them 2-1 after extra-time in 2015.

The capital club have not won another major honour since they beat neighbours Roma in 2013, with manager Simone Inzaghi prioritising the final by resting several key players for Saturday’s 3-2 defeat at Fiorentina.
