Very close was the Lazio match at the Olympic Stadium in Rome. He arrived with a two-goal deficit after the first leg due to goals from Serbian Dusan Vlahovic and Federico Chiesa, but he never stopped believing in the comeback.

Led by Luis Alberto in the midfield, in what seems to be their last season, the ‘laziali’ took control of the match from minute 1. There was no trace of Juventus until the end of the match, about to have to play an indecent and undeserved extra time due to the level of the match he had played.

It only took 12 minutes for ‘Taty’ to get Lazio into the tie. The Brazilian Alex Sandro was anti-competitive, the Argentine striker easily prevailed in the heart of the area to put the first on the scoreboard and in his own account with a header that entered the top corner.

Lazio pressed during the first 45 minutes in search of the well-deserved second goal, but Castellanos let the double escape with a one-on-one that he failed to define well.

He didn’t lower his head, he reset at half-time and was lethargic again as soon as he resumed, this time taking advantage of a one-on-one that Luis Alberto gave him on a plate, with a perfect assist. The Argentine did not fail and the Olympic team collapsed, dreaming of a comeback and a Cup final in a season to be forgotten.

But just when it seemed that the match could go to extra time, just when Lazio felt worthy of going to the final, ‘Juve’ killed the tie. Milik had to come off the bench to solve the attacking problems of Chiesa and Vlahovic and score on the first ball he touched.

Lateral center from the American Timothy Weah, also recently introduced, and at the far post the scorer with the most sense of smell among Massimiliano Allegri’s men appeared to summon all the Juventinos to that same stage in just 3 weeks, in a final in which he is already waiting rival, who will leave Fiorentina-Atalanta.

‘Juve’ is fighting for a title again. And, despite not being at her best, she has a good chance of winning it.
