LIVE: Italian Cup Final
Hello and welcome to today's Italian Cup Final between Uwe Rösler's A.C. Milan and Giampiero Ventura's Torino. Here are the lineups for today's game at Roma's Stadio Olimpico:
Yes, thank you Zinedine up in the studio, but out here the players are lining up in the tunnel.
It's so important this game because it sets Rösler off on a great start to his career in Italy. To Torino, it's not as important for Ventura who is entering his fifth year in charge of Toro
Absolutely, no doubt Rösler will be playing his trademark 'heavy metal football' today, full of pressing and organisation on the opposition players.
It's brilliant to see some change in style of play over here. It's understandable with the climate in Italy it's not always possible to play at 100% all 90 minutes. Rösler's 'heavy metal' style will definitely shock a few teams next season.
It's so important for Milan and Rösler to win today as it sends them into European competition - something Milan have missed for two years running.
Definitely, but that's enough now, the teams are out and the Italian Cup Final is about to begin, and it's all live here on Sky Sports Italia!
The teams are in position, and it's Torino's Ishak Belfodil to get us started here.
Tsepo Masilela will take the throw-in for Torino. Achraf Lazaar plays it back to his left-back Masilela. The South African finds fellow African Kevin-Prince Boateng in the middle. A pass from Benassi is kicked out wide left, Yarmolenko and Campbell go and chase after it - Andriy Yarmolenko wins the battle and takes the ball away. Here is the competitions top scorer Kramaric, signed from Leicester in January. He battles with Acerbi and remains in possession of the ball. Kramaric turns past Milanovic and shoots! Parried towards Sofiane Feghouli's feet! GOAL!
