Khedira and Co.
Juventus Turin enters the final of Coppa Italia after a close win against Atalanta Bergamo. The “Old Lady” could make history with the next cup victory.
Juventus Turin is in the final of the Coppa Italia for the fourth time in a row.
Miralem Pjanic scored a lucky penalty against Atalanta Bergamo in the second leg (79. Minutes) to enter the final (read more about the game in the TICKER).
Sami Khedira, like many other regulars, was spared after Juve had already won the first leg 1-0.
The German was replaced in the second half, while Benedikt Höwedes was sitting on the bench for only 90 minutes (data center: schedule/results of the Serie A series).

The Italian championship runners-up could thank the referee for the lead goal, as the foul against Blaise Matuidi was not a clear penalty whistle.
The Frenchman let himself fall theatrically after a plucking of his opponent – there can be no talk of tearing down. Eventually, Pjanic turned the comedy 911 into an ice-cold one.
After winning the cups in 2015,2016 and 2017, Juventus is now aiming for the fourth triumph in a row. No club in Italy has ever done so before.
In the second semi-finals, Lazio Rome and AC Milan (from 8.45 pm in the LIVETICKER) will play the second finalist, the first leg ended 0-0.
