OFF THE POST! What a chance that was! The ensuing free-kick is met by De Roon, who swivels and sends a bouncing half-volley at goal. It has Strakosha beaten, but smacks off the post! The rebound comes out to Zapata who can't quite sort out his footing, as a scramble ensues. Two more shots are blocked before the ball comes to Zapata again, who heads wide of the near post from five yards!

82' GOAL! Lazio 1-0 Atalanta (Milinkovic-Savic)

Match Report

Atalanta had been the better side at Lazio's Stadio Olimpico home, hitting the woodwork either side of half-time in Wednesday's showpiece.

But substitute Milinkovic-Savic broke the deadlock for Lazio, powering home Lucas Leiva's corner, before Joaquin Correa wrapped it up with a second goal in the 90th minute.

Lazio's first Coppa Italia crown since 2013 will go some way towards making up for losing two of the past four finals to Juventus.
