No extra-time in Coppa Italia

There will be no extra-time for the remainder of the Coppa Italia this season, Italy’s football confederation (FIGC) has announced.

The Coppa Italia will resume on June 12 after months of suspension due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with Juventus taking on AC Milan at Allianz Stadium in the second leg of the semifinals while Inter Milan visit Napoli a day later. The final is scheduled to kick off on June 17 at the Rome Olimpico Stadium, reports Xinhua news agency.

According to the FIGC, the three remaining fixtures will go straight to a penalty shoot-out if the two sides cannot be separated in the regular time after two legs.

The first legs of the semi-finals were played in February as AC Milan played out a 1-1 draw with Juventus at San Siro while Napoli enjoyed a 1-0 away victory over Inter Milan.
