Juventus managed to beat AC Milan in the semi-final of the Italian cup to gain a place in the finals of this competition.

Juventus and AC Milan are the two best teams in the domestic campaign at the moment. It certainly is not surprising to know that both teams are fighting for the title.

AC Milan just recently dropped a few points in the race for the title, while Juventus have been maintaining their position at the top of the table since the start of the season. Now, Juventus will have the responsibility of having to win another major trophy this season after they entered into the finals of the Italian cup after beating AC Milan in the semifinals. The latest online football betting odds makes them slim favourites to win the trophy.

Juventus rested a number of high profile players for the match just like AC Milan. However, it was clearly the reserve team of Juventus that was significantly stronger than AC Milan. Martin Caceres opened the scoring for Juventus in the match, but AC Milan were soon on level terms in the match after the equaliser from the hugely impressive Stephan El Shaarawy.

However, it was Juventus who had the last laugh through Martin Caceres, who scored his second of the night to give the league leaders the edge.

"It's not just the result that counts, but the introduction of the newcomers who had a great game. There is no pressure on us, because I know the strength of my squad. We've got to continue working to emerge from this situation. This team has players who want to dream and know in order to achieve that dream they need to work, work, work," Juventus head coach Antonio Conte said after the match.

AC Milan had a second-half goal from Zlatan Ibrahimovich disallowed, which would have changed the match if it had been the other way round.
