Juventus are favorites to reach the Italian Cup final after beating Lazio 2-0 in the semi-final first leg in Turin on Tuesday. The strike partnership of Federico Chiesa and Dusan Vlahovic electrified the crowd at the Allianz Stadium with superb finishes in the 50th and 64th minutes as Juve came to life in the second half. The pair gave Juve a rare win in a difficult period as Massimiliano Allegri's side fell behind the Serie A title contenders in the battle to qualify for the Champions League in a matter of weeks.

Tuesday's win was the second in 10 matches for Juve after they were beaten by Lazio in Serie A at the weekend and were booed at half-time by disappointed fans.

Juve face Lazio in the second leg in Rome on April 23 and, if they win on aggregate, will play either Fiorentina or Atalanta in the final in May.

Fiorentina hosts Atalanta in the first leg of their last-four tie on Wednesday evening.

Lazio face local rivals Roma on Saturday as both capital clubs try to secure European football for next season.
