Juventus have progressed to the final of the Coppa Italia championship despite playing a goalless draw against rivals Inter Milan at the Allianz Stadium on Tuesday, February 9.

The Old Lady would have their 2-1 away win over Antonio Conte's men barely one week ago for their passage to the last stage of the cup competition.

Coach Andrea Pirlo would have Cristiano Ronaldo to thank for his superb brace that propelled his side over their opponent in the first leg in spite of Lautaro Martinez's ninth-minute effort.

Both teams created a lot of chances all through the encounter but neither was bold enough to convert.

Both sides had a good game but Inter were more convincing as they held more possession and a few more shots off target than the hosts.

Pirlo paraded his best men for the game, although, he trusted legendary Gianluigi Buffon in goal as against Polish goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny this time around.

Legit.ng earlier reported that Birthday boy' Cristiano Ronaldo was on song as Juventus edged AS Roma 2-0 in a highly entertaining Serie A cracker on Saturday night, February 6.

This is coming barely 24 hours after the Portuguese sensation clocked 36 - with many believing he is already in the twilight of his career.

Ronaldo was in the starting line-up in the encounter and it took him only 13 minutes before he opened the scoring when he picked up the ball on the edge of the box and produced a lovely left-footed strike that nestled into the corner.
