Full-time: Juventus are through to the Coppa Italia final for a record 20th time!
Perisic is livid with the referee when a decision goes his way and he's fortunate not to talk himself into a booking.
Four minutes of added time to be added. Juventus are heading for their 20th appearance in a Coppa Italia final.
- OffDejan KulusevskiJuventus
- OnFederico ChiesaJuventus
Juve sub: Federico Chiesa comes on for Kulusevski.
Danilo punches the air after making a block to deny Sensi a certain goal!
There's still no way through for Inter. Bentancur blocks Sensi's effort and Chiellini then uses all of his experience to draw the foul from Lukaku while challenging for a header to give Juve a breather.
- OffJuan CuadradoJuventus
- OnGiorgio ChielliniJuventus
Juve sub: Chiellini comes on to help protect Juve's lead, replacing Cuadrado.
Lukaku has his head in his hands as Hakimi selfishly goes for glory and smashes a shot into the side-netting.
Into the last 10! Lautaro's shot is blocked by the brilliant Demiral, and moments later Buffon doesn't get a clean punch on a cross. Skriniar then sends a ball across the face of goal, but no one can turn it in!
Inter are playing just two men at the back, with Skriniar pushing forward. Time is quickly running out for Conte's side, but if they managed to score now it would make for an intriguing finale.
Close! Sensi's effort takes a wicked deflection and drifts agonisingly past Buffon's near post! It's just not happening for Inter tonight.
- Yellow cardMarcelo BrozovicInternazionale
Yellow card! Brozovic catches Bentancur on the calf and deservedly goes into the book, and he, too, will miss the final if Inter progress (which isn't looking at all likely).
What a goal that would have been! Oh, that is vintage Ronaldo. A dazzling step-over and then he squeezes between Skriniar and Barella before he draws a fine save from Handanovic.
Cuadrado floats free-kick delivery towards the far post but Handanovic easily collects.
- OffAlessandro BastoniInternazionale
- OnAleksandar KolarovInternazionale
Inter double sub: Stefano Sensi and Aleksandar Kolarov come on for Eriksen and Bastoni.
- Yellow cardIvan PerišicInternazionale
Yellow card! Perisic talks himself into the book as Inter's frustration grows.
Save! McKennie is immediately involved, threading a through ball into the path of Ronaldo. His shot is pushed away by Handanovic at the near post.
Inter win another free-kick, and that is another terrible effort from Eriksen as his cross drifts out of play. There's a player lacking in confidence.
- OffFederico BernardeschiJuventus
- OnWeston McKennieJuventus
Juve sub: Weston McKennie comes on for Bernardeschi.
Ronaldo concedes a cheap free-kick on the left flank. But Eriksen, rather unforgivably, fails to beat the first man with a really poor delivery.
Here come Juventus on the counter-attack, but Ronaldo selfishly blazes over from a tight angle.
Juve lose the ball while trying to play out from the back. Eriksen intercepts Bentancur's loose pass and Lautaro slides in on Buffon, conceding the foul, as the hosts get away with one.
Inter sub: That will be Darmian's last action as he is replaced by Ivan Perisic. Finally, Conte is going for it!
Lukaku slips through Hakimi, his cross is squeezed into the path of the unmarked Darmian who fires it horribly wide. Wouldn't have counted in any case as, again, the offside flag was raised very late.
Ten minutes into the second-half and Inter are yet to really carve out a decent opening. When, exactly, is Conte going to throw caution to the wind?
Inter go close! Hakimi boasts unbelievable pace and he drives Inter forward once again. He loses it but Barella wins it back and tees up the wing-back, who leans back slightly and curls a shot just over the bar.
Juve break with Bentancur leading the charge. He spreads it to Ronaldo on the left side of the penalty area before receiving it back. He searches for Kulusevski with a through pass on the opposite flank but there's too much zip on it this time and the move breaks down.
Hakimi is enjoying the space he's being afforded at wing-back as he forces another corner. This time Inter's set-piece comes to nothing.
- 2nd Half
Kick-off! Inter get us underway in the second-half. It would be some comeback now if the Nerazzurri can progress to the final. Remember, they need to score at least twice.
- End of 1st Half
Half-time: An absorbing first-half ends 0-0, and Juve are still leading 2-1 on aggregate meaning Inter have it all to do in the second-half.
Another important block! This time it's Bastoni who gets in the way of another Ronaldo shot, and this one was definitely goal-bound!
Save! Ronaldo is finding his groove as he cuts inside and fires a shot from a tight angle.Handanovic keeps it out with his feet!
Important defending! De Vrij gets across to make a huge sliding block to deny Ronaldo the opening goal.
Ronaldo shoots from the resultant free-kick - of course he does - but smashes it against the Inter defensive wall.
Pirlo gets a talking to from the referee after complaining that Brozovic escaped a booking for a foul on Cuadrado.
It's Inter's turn to use the high-press to good effect, but Eriksen's shot is blocked by - yes, you guessed it - Demiral.
Ronaldo loses his footing at the crucial time just as Kulusevski delivers a cross.
Good pressing from Juve as they win the ball back in Inter's half. Bentancur hesitates in playing the pass though and eventually moves it wide, and the hosts then move the ball backwards.
Brozovic has another crack at goal from distance, and this time he gets his effort on target. No trouble for Buffon, though, as it's straight down the middle and comfortable for him to collect.
The flag stays down as Lukaku pounces on the ball inside the penalty area. He flashes a shot wide, but then the offside flag is finally raised anyway.
Inter are pressing high up the pitch and win their fourth corner of the evening. Again they go short, Eriksen to Brozovic, but this time Juve are alert to the danger and deal with the danger.
Chance! Inter come forward once more, and this is much more like it. The visitors work a short corner, Hakimi pulls it back to Eriksen - unmarked on the edge of the box - but his shot is blocked and Inter can only force another corner.
So close for Inter! Eriksen delivers a teasing cross, Skriniar flicks his header on, it hits Lukaku on the stomach and bounces agonisingly wide!
Yellow card! That's what you call taking one for the team, as Alex Sandro cynically fouls Hakimi right on the edge of the box, earning a booking, and that means he will also miss the final if Juve progress.
Inter win a free-kick, Ronaldo heads Eriksen's delivery to the edge of the box and Brozovic blazes the rebound into row-Z.
Much better from Inter, as they finally play with some urgency. Hakimi races down the right, plays it into the middle and gets it back from Barella. Demiral, who was excellent in the first-leg, blocks his shot from the edge of the box.
Pirlo will be more than content with how the game is shaping up. Juve are totally bossing proceedings, and Inter - bizarrely - seem happy to let them. Still early days of course.
Juve have had 68 per cent of possession so far - for those who love a stat.
Danilo scuffs a weak shot at goal, it's blocked by Skriniar and Inter finally have possession.
Hakimi needs his finger patched up and goes off for some brief treatment.
Juve back on the ball now as they enjoy yet another spell of possession. Despite dominating the ball, the hosts have yet to register a shot at Handanovic just yet.
Yellow card! Darmian goes into the book for a dangerous sliding challenge on Ronaldo, meaning he will miss the final if Inter progress.
Inter seeing much more of the ball now as they switch it wide to Darmian, whose cross is hacked clear by Demiral.
No penalty! Hakimi puts on the accelerator as he races down the flank and when he crosses, Juve fail to clear their lines. It drops to Lautaro - this is a great chance... but he swings and misses, kicking the leg of Bernardeschi instead! Inter's appeals for a spot-kick are waved away by the referee.
Ronaldo makes a clever run in behind the Inter defence and he very nearly gets onto the end of a long pass out of defence but Handnovic was quickly onto the case to gather.
It's a big chance for Eriksen to stake a claim this evening but he loses his footing as Inter's first attack collapses with Cuadrado coming away with the ball.
Pirlo has a dilemma tonight: does he stick or twist? Playing for a draw is always dangerous.
Inter may be behind in the tie but they've had very little of the ball thus far. Juve are knocking it around with confidence.
The first-leg was an ill-tempered affair with several players picking up yellow cards, and this match seems to be following a similar pattern. No yellow cards just yet, but already a couple of fouls have been committed.
- 1st Half
Kick-off! Juventus get us underway at the Allianz Stadium!
The warm-up continues...
FIVE minutes until kick-off! It's Juventus versus Inter in the Coppa Italia semi-final second-leg, it's LIVE and it's NEXT!
But the omens are against the Nerazzurri...
Without Lukaku, Inter lacked the clinical edge as they allowed a one-goal lead to slip in the first-leg. They need to score as least twice tonight to qualify, but Juve will have a tough task keeping them quiet: Conte's side are the top goalscorers in Serie A this campaign having hit in excess of 50 goals already.
Pirlo has warned his side against complacency as they look to extend their winning run to seven straight games and reach the final. “It’s the second round of an important meeting, we have a chance to go to the final, it’s a target we must reach at all costs," he told Juventus TV. “We must have the right approach, it starts from 0-0, this game will be like a final. We must be focused.”
Antonio Conte has quite the job of trying to turn this tie on its head, and speaking to press ahead of the game he called on his players to cut out the errors. "Juventus are a very strong team that do not need certain gifts, such as those we made in the first leg," he said. "We will have to do better. I was a footballer, I know it can happen to make certain mistakes, but we must learn from them.”
Did you know? Juventus have failed to keep a clean sheet in only one of their last six matches - in the first-leg encounter against Inter Milan in Coppa Italia.
Here's how the first-leg unfolded...
Inter are boosted by the return of Romelu Lukaku, who missed the first-leg. He partners Lautaro Martinez, who opened the scoring at the San Siro last time out. Christian Eriksen starts behind the front two, while Ashley Young is dropped after conceding a penalty in the first tie.
Like he did in the first-leg, Andrea Pirlo once again opts to start Dejan Kulusevski up top with Ronaldo, as Alvaro Morata is benched. Merih Demiral comes in at the heart of defence to partner Matthijs de Ligt, with Giorgio Chiellini named amongst the substitutes. Adrien Rabiot and Rodrigo Benancur feature in midfield, and Gianluigi Buffon takes the gloves.
