Coppa line-ups: Juventus v Milan

Coppa line-ups: Juventus v Milan

Juventus coach Maurizio Sarri isn't sure what to expect when they meet AC Milan in the Coppa Italia semifinal.

Juventus players warmed up before the match in T-shirts with the message "No Racism", while Milan wore tops on with "Black Lives Matter" written on them, in solidarity with global protests over the death of George Floyd.

Rebic saw red in a insane passage of play in which Cristiano Ronaldo fired a penalty against the post just moments earlier before the Croatian's moment of madness as he launched a kung-fu kick on Juve right-back Danilo in a wild attempt to win the ball.

Gianluigi Donnarumma perhaps got the slightest of touches on it but as Milan attempted to clear their lines, Rebic caught Danilo in the chest with a risky high foot and was shown a straight red card. Both sides will be eyeing to seal the berth for the final.

The match at the Allianz Stadium, on the day Italy would have kicked off Euro 2020 in Rome had the tournament not been postponed for a year, is the first competitive fixture since March in one of the countries worst affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

They will be helped by Wednesday's ruling which eliminates extra-time in the event of deadlock after 90 minutes for both last-four second legs and next week's final.

The newspaper also comments on the "magical formula" of Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala, which could prove too hard for Milan to deal with.

Milan were already at a disadvantage with Zlatan Ibrahimovic out due to suspension and losing Rebic, who had contributed 40 per cent of their goals in 2020 prior to kick-off, to a needless, reckless challenge made an already daunting task look near impossible.
