Juventus won a second consecutive double when substitute Alvaro Morata’s extra-time goal secured a 1-0 Italian Cup final win over AC Milan who missed out on Europe for a third successive season on Saturday.
Juve’s triumph also meant tiny Sassuolo, who have completed only three seasons in the top flight since making their Serie A debut in 2013-14, qualified for Europe for the first time.
Milan, who finished seventh in the league after another dismal season, surprisingly looked the more dangerous team at Rome’s Stadio Olimpico but failed to take their chances.
Juventus, Serie A champions for the last five seasons, snatched the win 10 minutes from the end of extra time when Morata swept the ball home after a counter-attack from deep in their own half.
Meanwhile, several thousand fans gathered in the main square of Sassuolo which, with a population of about 40,000 is the smallest town ever represented in Serie A.
Sassuolo finished sixth in the league, the highest-placed team outside the automatic European berths, and took Juve’s place in the Europa League.
