FLORENCE, Italy (AP) -- Juventus overcame a first-leg deficit with a 3-0 win at Fiorentina on Tuesday to advance to the Italian Cup final and keep alive its hopes of a treble.

Seeking its first Italian Cup trophy in 20 years, Juventus advanced on 4-2 aggregate.

Filling in for the injured Carlos Tevez, Alessandro Matri put Juventus ahead from close range midway through the first half and Roberto Pereyra doubled the lead just before halftime by knocking in a rebound.

Leonardo Bonucci capped the victory with a volley inside the near post following a corner in the 59th.

Napoli hosts Lazio in the other semifinal Wednesday following a 1-1 opening leg.

The final is June 7.

Juventus is cruising toward its fourth straight Serie A title and faces Monaco in the Champions League quarterfinals.
