Juventus beat Lazio to set up Coppa Italia semi against Inter
ROME — Holder Juventus will meet bitter rival Inter Milan in the Italian Cup semifinals after winning 1-0 at Lazio on Wednesday in a repeat of last year’s final.
Stephan Lichtsteiner scored the only goal in the 66th minute, slotting the rebound toward the bottom right corner after Simone Zaza hit the left post. Lazio goalkeeper Etrit Berisha pushed away the ball but it had already crossed the line.
Berisha had kept his side in the match, diving smartly to keep out a Paul Pogba snapshot in the first half.
He also denied Alvaro Morata with his leg in the 51st. Zaza fired the follow-up into the side-netting with the goal gaping.
Meanwhile, in the league, Sassuolo drew 1-1 with Torino to move level on points with AC Milan in sixth place.
