Atalanta face Juventus in the Coppa Italia final after beating Napoli in the semi-final thanks to two goals from Matteo Pessina.

After a goalless first leg, Duvan Zapata shot Atalanta in the lead from 25 yards – and the striker was involved in all three goals.

He put Matteo Pessina to their second goal after just 16 minutes.

Hirving Lozano gave Napoli hope, but then Pessina pushed the clinching goal home after a fine move.

Atalanta – who lost the final in 2019 to Lazio – have only won one major trophy in their history, the 1963 Coppa Italia.

They have been one of Italy’s top sides in recent years – scoring more goals than anyone else in Serie A in each of the last two seasons – and reaching the Champions League quarter-finals in 2020.

Juve – who beat Inter Milan 2-1 overall – awaits them in the final on 19 May.
