Juventus meet AC Milan in the Coppa Italia final in Rome on Wednesday, with both teams looking to add to their extensive trophy cabinets.

Juve are also in pole position to capture a seventh consecutive Serie A title, needing just a point from their final two matches to win the Italian league for the 34th time in their history.

AC Milan manager Gennaro Gattuso insists he is only the coach and that it's the club who will decide whether goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma will stay.

Milan winger Suso reflects on the Coppa Italia final loss to Juventus - "we weren't good, we weren't up to it, the rest doesn't really matter".

Two goals were scored by Mehdi Benatia, one of Douglas Costa.

"The lads had an extraordinary game and deserved this win".

"I'm very proud because we've done in seven years what only men with a capital M can do", the goalkeeper told JTV.
