Showing Wednesday 17 May, 8.00pm: Juventus v Lazio, The Coppa Italia Final

Juventus can claim the first title of a possible domestic and European treble when they face Lazio in the Coppa Italia final in Rome on Wednesday.

Juve need one win from their final two matches to secure a sixth consecutive Serie A title, despite having lost 3-1 to closest rivals Roma on Sunday.

They play Real Madrid in the Champions League final in Cardiff on 3 June.

And victory over Lazio, fourth in the league, would secure the Italian Cup for a third successive year.

The match – to be held at the Stadio Olimpico, Lazio’s home ground but technically a neutral venue – is a repeat of the 2015 final, when Juve won 2-1 after extra-time.

Monaco stunned both Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund to reach the last four with some vibrant attacking play.

Buffon, 39, said: “They have youth and the insouciance that comes with it.

“But I think over the two matches, 180 minutes, experience will play into our hands.”

Monaco’s 18-year-old forward Kylian Mbappe has caught the eye of top European clubs with a run of five goals in four knockout matches against City and Dortmund, and Leonardo Jardim’s free-scoring team have scored 95 goals in 34 league games so far.
