Atalanta thrash Fiorentina to reach Coppa Italia final

Two stoppage-time goals have helped Atalanta beat 10-man Fiorentina 4-1 in the second leg of their Coppa Italia semi-final, sending them to the showpiece with a 4-2 aggregate victory.

Atalanta will face record 14-times winners Juventus in the final on May 15 in Rome, after the Old Lady qualified with a 3-2 aggregate victory over Lazio despite a 2-1 defeat in the second leg of their semi-final on Tuesday.

Atalanta were quick to level the tie when midfielder Teun Koopmeiners scored in the eighth minute.

Fiorentina defender Lucas Martinez Quarta netted with a header following a free kick midway through the second half, 15 minutes after the visitors' Nikola Milenkovic had been sent off.

But then Atalanta - have won the Coppa Italia once, in 1962/63 - put on the after-burners.

Gianluca Scamacca levelled the tie again in the 75th minute with a stunning scissor kick and Ademola Lookman made it 3-1 on the night in  added time before Mario Pasalic put the tie to bed seconds before the final whistle.
