Juventus are through to the semi-finals of the Coppa Italia after they beat AC Milan in a pulsating game at the Juventus Stadium on Wednesday. The hosts got off to the perfect start when Paulo Dybala struck home a stunning right-foot volley after 10 minutes before Miralem Pjanic doubled their advantage with a wonderful free-kick. In the second period, an evening of special strikes continued as Carlos Bacca's excellent snap shot gave the visitors a route back into the game. However, Manuel Locatelli's red card for a poor tackle on Dybala was a major setback for Milan. Juventus will play Napoli in the semi-final after the Partenopei beat Fiorentina on Tuesday.
Medhi Benatia handed Juve the lead after good build up play saw Dani Alves lift the ball over the defence for the Morroco international to fire home on the half-hour mark. It looked as though Juve were about to settle for their second successive draw, but a very late penalty was given against Mattia De Sciglio. Argentine striker Dybala kept his nerve to slot the penalty past teenage goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma who had pulled off a series of stunning saves to keep Milan in the game. The three points also allowed Juventus to look ahead to their Champions League last 16 return against Porto, who they lead , next week. Juventus suffered a setback in the warm-up when Croatian striker Mario Mandzukic was struck down with illness. But the champions were soon into their stride and deservedly took the lead on the half-hour mark when Moroccan centre-back Benatia was picked out by a Dani Alves cross over the top of the defence. Benatia chested down the pass and drove the ball beyond the despairing dive of year-old 'keeper Donnarumma.

I looked it up on the FA's site, and it couldn't have been a peno. The following must be considered: the movement of the hand towards the ball not the ball towards the hand the distance between the opponent and the ball unexpected ball the position of the hand does not necessarily mean that there is an infringement touching the ball with an object held in the hand clothing, shinguard, etc. I think the whole football rule book should be re-written in black and white terms to take out the opinion factor. For me, it wasn't a penalty, I couldn't see what he could do with his arm from that short a distance with the ball kicked at that speed. Seif23juventino "the penalty was clear" - Yeah, to Juve fans and the bribed ref.

The Argentine striker found the back of the net once in each half to take his league tally to and consign Milan to a fourth consecutive home game in all competitions without a victory. If a miserable run at San Siro does not do for head coach Montella, it may be the Rossoneri's poor record against top-six sides this season that costs him his job - Juve followed Lazio , Roma and Inter in making light work of big-spending Milan. While this was not a particularly poor Milan performance, they were listless in attack and their forwards' failings were only emphasised by the presence of Higuain in the opposing ranks. The year-old thrashed a ruthless effort into the net after 23 minutes and then doubled his tally shortly after the hour-mark with a similarly devastating strike, suggesting he is returning to his prolific best after a difficult start to the campaign. Clearly aware of the enormity of the fixture and their desperate need for a result, Milan started at a great pace at a baying San Siro. Gianluigi Buffon punched an early Ricardo Rodriguez free-kick away from his near post and Nikola Kalinic should have turned a shot on target amid a chaotic goalmouth scramble.
The trophy, which was being contested outside of Italy for the 10th time, is traditionally a clash between the Italian league and cup winners, but Milan qualified as Coppa Italia runners-up after Juve clinched the domestic double last season. Striker Gonzalo Higuain was dropped to the Milan bench amid media rumours of an imminent move to Chelsea , with some pre-match reports suggesting he was struggling with a fever. Yet it was Juve's Portuguese talisman Ronaldo who again stole the show with a winning goal that sealed the Turin club's eighth Supercoppa win to make them the competition's most successful team with one more trophy than Milan. We've got this cup, now we must keep working hard to achieve the next trophy. There were few clear chances in a balanced first half, Ronaldo going closest with an acrobatic volley that bounced off the ground and skimmed the crossbar before Milan winger Hakan Calhanoglu's snapshot drew a smart save from Wojciech Szczesny. Patrick Cutrone was inches away from putting Milan in front when his powerful shot cannoned back off the crossbar just three minutes after the break.
