The Bianconeri secured their second trophy of the season by defeating La Dea in Wednesday night's Italian cup final.

After winning the Supercoppa Italiana at the beginning of the season, Juventus have added another trophy to their cabinet after defeating Atalanta in Wednesday's Coppa Italia final. The Bianconeri stood their grounds to run away with a 2-1 win over Piero Gasperini's high-flying side to ssecure a record-extending 14th trophy in the competition.

Atalanta started the game on a high-note and were almost reward for the barage of attacks but for the resilience of the Juventus backline that efficiently repelled all the attempts by their opponents. Against he run of the play, Andrea Pirlo's men assumed the driving seat, thanks to Dejan Kulusevski's strike in the 31st minute. With four minutes left of the first half to play, Ruslan Malinovskyi was set up to score the equalizer from just outside the Old Lady's penalty area.

Another cagey affair graced the beginning of the second half but it was Federico Chiesa who eventually grabbed the winner for Juventus with his last touch of the game after brilliantly combining with Kulusevski in the 73rd minute. The former Fiorentina man was replaced with Paulo Dybala a minute later and although the Argentine could not make any significant impact in the encounter, his side did enough to safeguard their lead and run away as victors.

It was a relatively quiet day for Cristiano Ronaldo who, as a result of Wednesday night's win, secured his first Coppa Italia title and the 33rd through in his illustrious career. The Portuguese superstar has now won every major competition he's played in for Manchester United, Real Madrid and Juventus, becoming the first player to achieve the feat in three of Europe's top five leagues.

Meanwhile Gianluigi Buffon, having announced his decision to leave Juve at the end of the season, featured in post in Wednesday's win over Atalanta. The 43-year-old veteran Italian shotstopper will be bowing out with a sixth Coppa Italia title, doing so across three different decades.
