Alvaro Morata seals Italian Cup for Juve

Substitute Alvaro Morata scored in extra time as Juventus beat AC Milan 1-0 to win the Italian Cup on Saturday, becoming the first club to win the league and cup double in consecutive seasons.

In the 110th minute at the Stadio Olimpico, Morata required one touch to redirect a cross from Juan Cuadrado past Milan’s 17-year-old goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma.

The loss means Milan will miss out on Europe for a third consecutive season. The Rossoneri had to win the final to qualify for the Europa League following a seventh-place finish in Serie A.
