Juventus win Italian cup….

Italian defender Georgio Chiellini lifts the Italian Cup trophy after the 1-0 victory over Milan on Saturday

Juventus won a second-successive double when substitute Alvaro Morata’s extra-time goal gave them a 1-0 win over AC Milan in the Italian Cup final on Saturday, as their dejected opponents missed out on Europe for a third successive season.Juve’s win also meant that tiny Sassuolo, who have completed only three seasons in the top flight since making their Serie A debut in 2013-14, qualified for Europe for the first time.Milan, who finished seventh in Serie A after another dismal season, surprisingly looked the more dangerous team at Rome’s Stadio Olimpico but failed to take their chances.Juventus, Serie A champions for the last five seasons, snatched the win 10 minutes from the end of extra-time when Morata swept the ball home to finish off a counter-attack which started deep in the Juve half.
