Juventus will not retain their Coppa Italia Primavera title after they were beaten 3-0 by Fiorentina in the semi-final of the competition this evening.

Andrea Zanchetta’s side already had a mission on their hands after being 2-0 down from the first leg a week ago.

La Viola didn’t sit back and relax and found themselves 3-0 up by half-time.

Goals from Axel Gulin, Leonardi Capezzi and then Nicolò Fazzi ensured that Fiorentina would face Lazio in the final, after they beat Inter Milan in their semi-final.

Gulin’s goal came after just three minutes as he was thread through and managed to angle his body to fire home in a one-on-one situation.

Capezzi’s goal was the highlight, as the midfielder pounced on a loose ball from 20-yards out and sent a superb lob over the goalkeeper into the far corner of the net.

Fazzi showed terrific strength to hold off a defender as he edged his way into the box to slot home for Fiorentina’s third and all but secure their place in the final.
