Juventus begin pursuit of first Treble with Coppa Italia final against Lazio

Juventus will try to pick up their first title of the season and continue their attempt to become only the seventh club to win the European Treble when they face Lazio in the final of the Coppa Italia on Wednesday.

The only club capable of winning the Treble this season, Juventus currently hold a four-point lead over AS Roma in Serie A and also will play Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League final in Cardiff on June 3.

Barcelona were the last to win the domestic league, domestic cup and Champions League when they defeated Juventus in the Champions League final in 2015. Inter Milan are the only Italian club to have achieved the honour, having won Serie A, the Coppa Italia and the Champions League in 2010-11.

Juventus will try to become the first club to win the Coppa Italia in three consecutive years and add to their record 11 victories in the competition all-time. They defeated Lazio twice during the season, winning 1-0 away on Aug. 27 and 2-0 at home on Jan. 22.

According to FiveThirtyEight.com's Soccer Power Index (SPI), Juventus have a 64 percent chance of defeating Lazio on Wednesday. They also have a 96 percent chance of winning Serie A but only a 45 percent chance of defeating Real Madrid in the Champions League final.

Lazio have won the Coppa Italia six times, last winning it in 2013. AS Roma have won it nine times, Inter have won it seven times and Fiorentina have also won it six times.

The final has been held at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome since ending the two-leg format in 2008.
