The Milan goalkeeper saved two penalties as the Rossoneri overcame Lazio 5-4 in a dramatic shoot-out after the two-legged semi-final ended goalless on Wednesday.

"The credit goes to the whole team for a great performance, as we worked really hard to reach the final and deserved this", Donnarumma told Milan TV.

Ciro Immobile scored the opening penalty kick for Lazio.

Miralem Pjanic scored a controversial penalty as Juventus reached its fourth straight final.

But the referee's decision was confirmed by the VAR and Pjanic converted into the center of the net as goalkeeper Etrit Berisha leaped to his right.

Higuain sat out the second leg due to a minor injury.

Obviously he had to come back down to Earth a bit. "I'll be ready to swing. hack away and turn some double plays". It appears he's doing the same this year for the Yankees , who traded for him February 7.

Initially, the medical staff at Juventus suggested that the injury was only a minor one however; upon further inspection, the staff has made a decision to follow a 20 day conservative treatment before reevaluating the 24 year old.

Atalanta Coach Gian Piero Gasperini insists he feels "not even a bit" of regret after going out of the Coppa Italia to Juventus.

Juventus drew 2-2 with Tottenham in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16.

Atalanta, aiming to become just the third side in 19 attempts to breach their opponents' backline, squandered a glorious chance in the second half after Papu picked out the upright with Gianluigi Buffon well off his line.

Gomez then blasted another unsafe effort over the crossbar before Juve's Douglas Costa curled a long shot off the bar just minutes later.

Earlier Juventus took on Atalanta, whose Serie A game Sunday was snowed off, with light snowfall still in the Allianz Stadium.
