Watch: Cristiano Ronaldo VS Atalanta

Kulusevski goes down on the right hand side under a cynical challenge from Romero, who trips the Juve man from behind. Pessina goes down in the box after a shoulder barge from De Ligt. Zapata had won the ball back high up the pitch and fed the ball into Pessina in the area.

He goes down but the referee signals that De Ligt got a toe on the ball and says no penalty. The two sides drew 1-1 in Turin in December, before a late goal from Ruslan Malinovskiy in April saw Atalanta triumph in the reverse fixture in Bergamo.

A Juve win would be a record extending fourteenth Coppa Italia victory, while Atalanta are seeking their first major trophy since winning this tournament in 1963. Here’s a look at the Coppa Italia trophy which the two teams are competing for tonight.

Atalanta have won the Coppa Italia just once in their history, that triumph coming in the 1962-63 season. It’s their fifth appearance in the final though, the most recent being in 2019 when they went down 2-0 to Lazio.

Gian Piero Gasperini will be hoping to end tonight’s game on the right side of the result to cap off a brilliant season for the side from Bergamo. Cristiano Ronaldo picks himself up to take the free kick. His effort is straight into the wall before coming back to him on the rebound. He hits it first time, but it’s straight at Gollini in goal.

Both of tonight’s team took notable scalps in the last round to reach tonight’s final. Juventus beat Serie A Champions 2-1 on aggregate after a 2-1 win at San Siro and a 0-0 draw in Turin. Cristiano Ronaldo proved to be the match winner, scoring both goals for Andrea Pirlo’s side in the semi-final.

Atalanta meanwhile overcame Napoli in the semi-final, drawing the first leg 0-0 in Naples before a 3-1 win in the second leg at home.
