Juve had wrapped up the league title in April, for the fifth season in a row - and needed the Coppa Italia to make history.

AC Milan manager Gennaro Gattuso will not be dragged into discussing Gianluigi Donnarumma's future, after suffering a humbling 4-0 loss to Juventus in the Coppa Italia final, saying that responsibility belongs to his bosses.

Argentina coach, Jorge Sampaoli, has been handed a major boost with AC Milan midfielder, Lucas Biglia set for a return to action for the club in Wednesday's Copa Italia final clash against Juventus.

"I am the coach, all I do is train the players who are put at my disposal".

Two goals were scored by Mehdi Benatia, one of Douglas Costa.

But there was controversy before the break when Hakan Calhanoglu was brought down only for the referee to blow the whistle for the break without letting Milan take the free kick.

"Juventus" actively went forward and soon succeeded in the 56th minute, Benatia was locked filing of a Target from a corner, and finally the chances of "Milan" in the title buried own goalkeeper. Both are still fighting for their place in the table - Juve for the first spot and Milan for the final European place.

"Today I feel this incredible pressure on me, as if the fans were on my shoulders", said the 40-year-old.

"After my error ... everyone said I was useless". I don't think the result is fair since we played very well in the first half.
