Football News

On Wednesday, a youthful Juventus side crushed SPAL 4-0 to set up a semifinal of the Coppa Italia against Inter Milan.

The penalty for Alvaro Morata gave Juve an early lead in Turin, and 21-year-old wing-back Gianluca Frabotta doubled his advantage by rifling a shot into the bottom corner, his first club goal, before halftime.

After 78 minutes, Dejan Kulusevski added a third with a composed finish and the stoppage-time tap-in of Federico Chiesa completed the route against the second-tier visitors.

For the encounter, Andrea Pirlo decided to rest star Cristiano Ronaldo and gave a first-team debut from the start to 19-year-old midfielder Nicolo Fagioli, while young men Alessandro Di Pardo and Cosimo Da Graca debuted from the bench.

But as they came out comfortable winners against a SPAL side that is fifth in Serie B, Juve faced little opposition and they will now meet Antonio Conte’s Inter over two legs for a place in the final.
