Coppa Italia Final is May 21

The Coppa Italia Final has been confirmed as Milan v Juventus on May 21 at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.

The date was the subject of controversy, as Italy Coach Antonio Conte wanted it moved forward to give him more time to prepare for Euro 2016.

Today the Lega Serie A announced it was confirming the date as Saturday May 21.

It also made a draw, which ruled that Milan will be the ‘home’ side, although obviously away goals will not be counted.

In the Coppa Italia, only the semi-finals are decided over two legs, all other ties being one-off knockout clashes.

If the result is not decided after 90 minutes, it will go to extra time and eventually penalties.
