Cristiano Ronaldo failed to convert from the penalty spot but Juventus still qualified for the final of this season’s Coppa Italia after holding 10-man AC Milan to a 0-0 home draw in Friday’s second-leg semi-final, Completesports.com reports.
The Turin club progressed to the final on the away goals rule after playing 1-1 in the first-leg at the San Siro in February, before football in Italy was suspended due to the outbreak of the coronavirus.
Juventus were awarded a penalty on 16 minutes after consultation with VAR but Ronaldo saw his effort hit the post.
A minute later Milan were reduced to 10 men after Ante Rebic was sent off for a reckless challenge.
The Serie A current leaders will be gunning for a record 14th Coppa Italia title adter last winning the competition in 2018.
They will face the winner of the second semi-final between Inter Milan and Napoli which comes up on Saturday 13 June.
Napoli go into the return fixture on the back of a 1-0 first-leg win at the San Siro back in February.
While Napoli will be looking for a first Coppa Italia title since 2014, Inter will hope to qualify for the final and emerge champions for the first time since 2011.
