Juventus are heavy favorites to reach the final of the Italian Cup after beating Lazio 2-0 in the first leg of the semi-final in Turin on Tuesday. Strike partner Federico Chiesa and Dusan Vlahovic turned the jeers into cheers at the Allianz Stadium with brilliant finishes in the 50th and 64th minutes as Juve came alive in the second half. The pair gave Juve a rare victory in a difficult period as Massimiliano Allegri’s side have fallen from Serie A title contenders in a battle to qualify for the Champions League in just a few weeks.

Tuesday’s win was only Juve’s second in 10 games after they were defeated by Lazio in Serie A last weekend and were booed at half-time by frustrated fans.

Juve will face Lazio in the second leg in Rome on April 23 and if they achieve an aggregate victory they will face either Fiorentina or Atalanta in the May final.

Fiorentina hosted Atalanta in the first leg of the last four on Wednesday evening.

Lazio will take on local rivals Roma on Saturday as both clubs in the capital try to secure European football for next season.
