Juventus wins Italian Cup to stay on track for treble

ROME (AP) -- Serie A champion Juventus added the Italian Cup title to its trophy case with a 2-1 win over Lazio in extra time Wednesday, setting up a chance for a treble.

Substitute Alessandro Matri scored from the center of the area in the 97th minute with a shot that Lazio goalkeeper Etrit Berisha should have saved.

Stefan Radu headed in for Lazio inside the near post following a free kick from Danilo Cataldi on the right flank four minutes in.

Giorgio Chiellini equalized in the 11th with an acrobatic display after Patrice Evra redirected a free kick from Andrea Pirlo toward him at the edge of the box.

The Bianconeri will target the final piece of the treble against Barcelona in the Champions League final on June 6.
