Cristiano Ronaldo missed just his second penalty for Juventus

Cristiano Ronaldo missed a penalty as Juventus progressed to the Coppa Italia final on away goals after a 0-0 draw against AC Milan in the semi-final second leg.

Despite the four-month gap between the two legs, there were similarities between the matches. Ronaldo also took a penalty at the San Siro - but scored - after a VAR review and Milan had Theo Hernandez sent off in the 1-1 draw in February.

The similarities began in the 13th minute when Andrea Conti was penalised for the slightest of handballs, which needed a two-minute VAR consultation to award Juventus the penalty. But, unlike the first leg, Ronaldo hit the bottom of the post.

Six seconds later, Ante Rebic - who scored Milan's goal in the first leg - was sent off for a dangerously reckless challenge on Danilo, with the visitors once again reduced to ten men in the Coppa Italia semi-finals.

Milan were unable to find the goal they needed as Ronaldo's first-leg penalty ultimately sent Juventus into the June 17 final, where they will face either Napoli or Inter Milan.
