Juventus emerged victorious in the Italian Cup final, defeating Atalanta 1-0 at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome. The decisive moment came in the fourth minute when Serbian striker Dusan Vlahovic found the back of the net, securing Juventus’ 15th Coppa Italia triumph.

Despite Juventus’ recent struggles, having won just three matches since the end of January, they managed to frustrate their opponents from the moment Vlahovic scored the only goal of the game. The 24-year-old forward also had a goal disallowed for offside in the second half.

Massimiliano Allegri’s side ended a three-year trophy drought with this victory, a significant achievement for Italy’s most successful and widely-supported club, who have faced challenges in recent seasons. Juventus’ triumph comes at a time when they have been overshadowed by the Milan clubs and Napoli in Serie A.Atalanta, who were aiming to win their first major trophy since the 1963 Italian Cup, were unable to break down Juventus’ well-organized defense. The Bergamo-based club, known for their attacking prowess, failed to register a single shot on target throughout the match.

The closest Atalanta came to equalizing was in the 80th minute when Ademola Lookman struck the post with a powerful shot. Despite their efforts, Gian Piero Gasperini’s team could not find a way past Juventus‘ resolute backline.

With their Italian Cup triumph secured, Juventus can now shift their focus to securing Champions League qualification through Serie A. Meanwhile, Atalanta will turn their attention to their upcoming Europa League final against Bayer Leverkusen in Dublin, where they will be seeking their first-ever European trophy
