That's all for today's coverage! Thanks for joining.
Sarri's side will now take on either Napoli or Inter in the final, with the second semi-final scheduled to take place on Saturday. The final takes place next Wednesday, so Juventus have five days to prepare themselves for that clash. As for Milan, their focus now turns to Serie A's grand return in a week's time.
Juventus play out a goalless draw against 10-man Milan to progress through to their 19th Coppa Italia final. Ronaldo missed a first-half penalty - controversially awarded by VAR for a handball against Conti - less than a minute before Rebic was red carded for a high challenge on Danilo. Neither team came close to scoring in a bland second period, meaning Juve advance 1-1 on away goals.
90' + 6'
FULL-TIME: JUVENTUS 0-0 MILAN (1-1 ON AGG, JUVE THROUGH ON AWAY GOALS)
90' + 5'
SAVE! Alex Sandro nearly snatches a late win on the day for Juventus, but Donnarumma parries his volleyed drive to safety.
90' + 3'
Dybala pulls the ball back for Cuadrado. The auxiliary full-back has options either side but elects to go it alone, only to pick out the stands with his wayward shot from the edge of the box.
90' + 2'
Saelemaekers very nearly gets on the end of Calhanoglu's pass after creeping behind Alex Sandro. The Milan substitute pulled back on his opponent, though, so the goal would not have stood even if he had got on the end of it.
90' + 1'
Four minutes have been added on at the end of the game at the Allianz Stadium.
Juventus are happy to knock the ball around in the opposition half, barely under any pressure. Bernardeschi loses possession and Paqueta has a chance to release Rafael Leao, but he badly overhits the through-ball.
In what is likely a final roll of the dice from Pioli, Saelemaekers comes on for Conti.
Calabria is replaced by Laxalt with two minutes of normal time remaining.
Dybala picks out the run of Ronaldo at the back post, but the Portugal international is unable to bring it under control. It has been a rare off-day for Ronaldo.
Danilo is off and Cuadrado on for Juventus in a straight swap at right-back. The hosts have one more substitution available should they wish to use it.
Juventus are advancing through to the final almost by default at the moment. They do not look as though they have a goal in them, but nor do opponents Milan - and it is the visitors who need to score.
Colombo is introduced for his senior Milan debut in place of Paqueta.
With less than 10 minutes to rescue his side's Coppa Italia campaign, Pioli brings on Krunic for Kessie.
DONNARUMMA DENIES DYBALA! The second half has finally livened up. Following Kjaer's near miss for Milan, Dybala takes range from 25 yards up the other end of the pitch and calls Donnarumma into rare action.
CHANCE FOR MILAN! Alex Sandro helps a Milan free-kick behind for a corner. The rare set-piece is met by Kjaer towards the front post, the centre-back glancing wide after taking up a good position.
Milan midfielder Kessie stays down after being tackled. Play resumes after a 60-second stoppage.
Juve's defenders back off and Kessie pulls the trigger. The shot takes a deflection and ends a fair way off target, while Calhanoglu's toe-poker moments later trickles through. Milan have still yet to test Buffon today.
The second half has been very low on quality, it must be said, although that is understandable given it is both sides' first game back after a three-month break. Remember, as things stand Juventus are through to the final on away goals.
Juventus substitute Khedira catches Rafael Leao late and is the third player to be yellow carded.
Bernardeschi's low cross from the left is easily cut out. Juventus are knocking on the door but do not really look like scoring.
GOOD DEFENDING! Kjaer makes a vital headed interception to prevent De Ligt glancing in from inside the six-yard box. If only Milan were as strong in an attacking sense today as they have been defensively.
Bentancur slips as he pulls the trigger but still manages to win a corner for his side, the ball going behind off Rafael Leao. Calabria gets his head to the set-piece first.
Just as Milan were beginning to build some much-needed momentum, Calhanoglu's stray pass goes straight out of play for a goal-kick.
Paqueta flicks on the ball and Milan have a rare opportunity to get players forward. Rafael Leao and Kessie take it in turns to barge their way through on goal, but neither are able to get the ball under control in the box.
This match is following a familiar pattern. Juve string together a number of passes, the cross from wide is blocked and the corner comes to little. Still, another 25 minutes of this and the hosts will be in the final.
Bernardeschi takes over from Costa in the fourth of Sarri's substitutions.
In fact, make that a triple change for Juve as Rabiot is also on for Matuidi.
Juventus make a second change - on comes Khedira for Pjanic in central midfield.
Credit to Milan for digging deep in a defensive sense since going down to 10 men. However, Pioli's charges now have less than half an hour to find the away goal they need - it is surely time for the visitors to make another change.
The corner drops in the six-yard box, ricochets off Bonucci and goes inches wide at the back post. However, it would not have counted as the referee had already blown for an earlier infringement.
Ronaldo's shot takes a deflection and loops over the crossbar for another corner. That came about as a result of Bennacer losing possession just inside his own half.
A corner bounces around in the Milan box before being cleared by Calhanoglu.
Romagnoli again gets the better of Ronaldo in their personal battle, winning the ball at full stretch. There are signs that Sarri's side are about to go through the gears in search of a second goal in the tie.
Milan skipper Romagnoli cuts out a cross from the right at the expense of a corner, which is easily dealt with. The visitors have given away possession far too easily over the last five minutes, but still Juventus cannot profit.
Juventus had 13 shots in the first half, which is only one fewer than they had in the whole of February's reverse fixture against Milan.
Bonaventura is replaced by Rafael Leao as Pioli makes a change early in the second half.
That really was poor defending from Juve, who need to wake up if they are to avoid elimination today. Dybala shoots wide and then has another one closed down.
INCHES WIDE! Milan hit Juve on the counter and Bonaventura plays a good cross into the box. Calhanoglu gets his head to it and steers the ball just wide of the target.
The visitors have a little more urgency to their game early in the second half - not surprising, given they need to score. Juve started the match strongly but faded as the first half went on and have been slow out of the blocks since the restart.
KICK-OFF! Milan get us back up and running at the Allianz Stadium. Both head coaches can make five changes apiece today should they wish, but the sides remain unchanged for the start of the second half.
The away goals rule means Milan require a goal to avoid elimination, but Pioli has no recognised strikers to turn to on the bench. As for Juventus, they may opt to tweak things at the break and have the likes of Cuadrado, Rabiot and Bernardeschi among their substitutes.
An action-packed first half comes to an end at the Allianz Stadium with the sides locked at 0-0 on the day, 1-1 on aggregate. All the drama happened in a five-minute period, with Ronaldo hitting the base of the post from the spot after being awarded a penalty by VAR for a harsh handball call against Conti. Rebic was sent off 18 seconds later for a high challenge on Danilo, but Juve have been unable to capitalise on the man advantage.
45' + 2'
HALF-TIME: JUVENTUS 1-1 MILAN
45' + 1'
Bonucci volleys wide from Juve's latest corner, which was awarded despite the final touch seemingly coming off Ronaldo.
Interestingly, Pioli has held off from making a change since Rebic was dismissed, so Milan have been playing without any real focal point up top ever since. That said, they have offered just as much in an attacking sense as Juve over the last 10 minutes.
Pjanic pulls back on Calhanoglu and becomes the latest player to be shown a yellow card by the referee Daniele Orsato.
Bonucci definitely made contact with Kjaer in that previous incident, though the Milan defender was offside.
PENALTY SHOUT! Calhanoglu floats a deep free-kick into the Juventus box from deep. Kjaer leaps towards the ball but is pushed in the back by Bonucci. There is not enough contact for the referee to point to the spot, and play continues.
RONALDO DENIED! Milan look stretched as Juve hit them on the break. Ronaldo and Dybala exchange passes and the former bends a shot towards the bottom-left corner from 20 yards. Donnarumma gets down to make a pretty routine save.
Juventus are creating next to nothing at the moment, despite their one-man advantage. In fact, Ronaldo's penalty aside - which was harshly awarded - Costa's chance in the opening couple of minutes is as close as they have come.
Bonaventura carries the ball to the edge of the box and cuts inside from the left. He can neither shoot nor pick out a team-mate, however, and Juventus survive a little scare. This has been a lot better from Pioli's men over the last five minutes.
The visitors are enjoying a rare spell on top. After stringing together a number of passes in the opposition half and winning a free-kick, though, the move culminates in Bennacer pretty much passing the ball straight to Buffon.
Milan's defenders are having to dig very deep in this first half. Kjaer heads away a cross and Juve wideman Costa then runs the ball out of play from the next attacking wave.
Paqueta is dragged back by Matuidi, giving Milan a chance to regroup a little. Remember, away goals count today so the onus is on the visitors to find a goal.
BIG SAVE! Matuidi is picked out by Danilo in the box and volleys on target from eight yards. Donnarumma makes the save and keeps the scoreline level, though he barely had to break stride.
Milan lump the ball up the field but it comes straight back. Pioli's men are already chucking everyone back behind the ball - it could be a long day.
Juventus are starting to find their groove now, having been knocked off their stride during a pretty frantic 10-minute spell. Ronaldo is once again unable to find the target with his shot from around 12 yards.
Ronaldo attempts to exchange passes with Dybala on the edge of the box but his team-mate is unable to keep it under control. The ball eventually falls for Costa to miscue a wild shot high into the empty stands.
A couple of crosses into the Juve box come to little, though Milan are at least now managing to get the ball forward. Strangely, the sending off appears to have helped them - whether or not they can sustain this for another 70 minutes is another matter.
Ronaldo fires wide from a right-sided position when put under a bit of pressure. That is pretty much the first attempt at either end of the field since Ronaldo's penalty miss and Rebic's dismissal moments later.
It needs emphasising just how shocking Rebic's challenge on Danilo was - kung-fu-esque. The challenges continue to fly in, with the referee now struggling to keep things under control.
And breathe! Welcome back, Italian football. A controversial VAR call, a missed Ronaldo penalty and a Rebic red card - and that is just in the opening 16 minutes!
Bonaventura handles the ball and enters the referee's book as a result.
REBIC DISMISSED! Seconds after Ronaldo's penalty miss, Rebic catches Danilo incredibly high with a shocking challenge and is rightly sent off.
Donnarumma got a slight touch to Ronaldo's penalty, so it will go down as a save rather than a miss.
RONALDO MISSES FROM THE SPOT! Ronaldo strikes the post from the penalty! A major let-off for Milan early on here.
PENALTY TO JUVENTUS! The referee may have waved away Ronaldo's appeals, but after a VAR check the penalty is given. Conti knocked the ball onto Ronaldo's elbow with his arm - a harsh one, it has to be said.
PENALTY APPEAL! Ronaldo brings down the ball and feels that Conti used his arm to block it, though it would have been harsh had the referee given it. Ronaldo's snapshot across goal is kept in play, but the attack eventually fizzles out.
Ronaldo has Danilo in space to his right but he opts to go the other way. The ball is eventually worked to Danilo and his cross into the middle is an enticing one, but Milan stand firm.
On the eight occasions Milan have drawn the first leg at home in the Coppa Italia semi-final, they have been eliminated five times and progressed on three occasions, most recently overcoming Lazio in 2018.
Ronaldo shows some nice footwork to work the shooting angle, but his attempt from 25 yards is blocked by Romagnoli on the edge of the box. Milan are struggling to get out of their own half.
Sarri's side are continuing to patiently probe away in search of an early opener. They have already created one big opportunity, which Costa failed to take, and have not really given Milan a sniff of the ball.
De Ligt meets the corner but is unable to guide the header on target. Juventus have settled into this match far better than their opponents.
It is Dybala who takes the free-kick, not Ronaldo. The attempt is not the best and clips the wall on its way behind for a corner.
Juve look as though they mean business on their return to action. Dybala is clattered into by Romagnoli around 25 yards from goal, meaning a first chance for Ronaldo to test Donnarumma from the free-kick.
EARLY CHANCE! Juventus are quickly out of the blocks. Alex Sandro powers forward down the left, gets away from his man and cuts the ball back for Costa, who drags an angled shot away from the target.
KICK-OFF! Following a minute's silence to remember all those who have lost their lives to coronavirus, Juventus get the first of the Coppa Italia semi-final second legs underway. Napoli take on Inter in the second of the semis tomorrow.
The teams are coming out onto the pitch at the Allianz Stadium, with kick-off just moments away in this behind-closed-doors clash. Away goals count in this competition, and if it still remains level after 90 minutes the game will go straight to penalties.
Milan have failed to win against Juventus in the Coppa Italia since 1985, losing eight and drawing five of the 13 meetings since then. Juve have won their last 10 home matches in this competition, meanwhile, which is a record streak for the club.
Stefano Pioli has made six changes to Milan's starting line-up following the 2-1 home loss against Genoa a little over three months ago. Zlatan Ibrahimovic misses out through suspension and is replaced up top by Rebic, while Donnarumma is in for Begovic at the opposite end of the field. Elsewhere, Theo Hernandez and Samu Castillejo are also banned, so in come Kjaer, Calabria and Paqueta.
Juventus beat Inter 2-0 in their most recent Serie A outing on March 8. Maurizio Sarri has made four alterations to his starting line-up on the back of that victory, including a change in goal as veteran goalkeeper Buffon comes in for Szczesny. Danilo, Pjanic and Dybala also return, taking the places of Cuadrado, Aaron Ramsey and Gonzalo Higuain.
Subs: Matteo Gabbia, Lucas Biglia, Diego Laxalt, Rafael Leao, Antonio Donnarumma, Marco Brescianini, Rade Krunic, Asmir Begovic, Daniel Maldini, Alexis Saelemaekers, Oscar Duarte, Giacomo Olzer, Lorenzo Colombo.
MILAN XI (4-2-3-1): Gianluigi Donnarumma; Andrea Conti, Simon Kjaer, Alessio Romagnoli (c), Davide Calabria; Ismael Bennacer, Franck Kessie; Hakan Calhanoglu, Lucas Paqueta, Giacomo Bonaventura; Ante Rebic.
Subs: Simone Muratore, Daniele Rugani, Mattia De Sciglio, Wojciech Szczesny, Adrien Rabiot, Carlo Pinsoglio, Marco Olivieri, Sami Khedira, Juan Cuadrado, Federico Bernardeschi, Giacomo Vrioni.
JUVENTUS XI (4-3-3): Gianluigi Buffon (c); Danilo, Leonardo Bonucci, Matthijs de Ligt, Alex Sandro; Miralem Pjanic, Rodrigo Bentancur, Blaise Matuidi; Douglas Costa, Paulo Dybala, Cristiano Ronaldo.
Juventus have won the Coppa Italia a record 13 times, including four years in a row prior to Lazio ending their dominance last season. The most recent of Milan's five Coppa triumphs came in 2003, meanwhile, with victory over Roma in that year's final.
Following a three-month hiatus owing to the coronavirus pandemic, football returns in Italy with this tasty cup tie between the country's two most successful clubs. The sides played out a 1-1 draw in February's first leg, with Cristiano Ronaldo scoring late on from the penalty spot to cancel out Ante Rebic's opener.
