Italian football started after more than three months of absence and immediately returned to reward Juventus.
Sarri's team had zero to zero against AC Milan thanks to the one by one torn from San Siro in the first leg.
Juve enjoyed the favor of the prediction because the Rossoneri had to do without their three stars absent due to suspension ( Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Theo Hernandez and Samu Castillejo ).
To these three serious absences was added the expulsion of Rebic at 16 '.
So Milan played outnumbered most of the game.
Juve did not do anything but remained constantly in the half of AC Milan, controlling the game without any problem.
The Rossoneri never shot on goal, Buffon was nothing but a non-paying spectator.
Juve kicked a penalty with Cristiano Ronaldo on the post and went close to scoring with Douglas Costa and Paulo Dybala.
The impression is that Juventus made the ball go around so as not to waste too much energy in view of the final on 17 June.
Milan could not help but exit the Italian Cup in a decent way.
Italian Cup, Juventus-Milan 0-0: the Bianconeri need only the bare minimum to reach the final.
Before the game, a minute's silence was observed to remember all coronavirus victims.
The players lined up in a circle, inside there were three representatives of nurses, doctors and socio-health workers.

The referee of the Italian Cup semifinal is Orsato di Schio.
Immediately an emotion at the first minute.
Alex Sandro dribbled two opponents on the left and served a golden assist to Douglas Costa who kicked off a penalty on the move.
Shortly after, at 5 ': Dybala kicked a free-kick from the edge of Milan's penalty area.
At 14 ', Orsato consulted the var to assign a penalty to Juventus for a handball by Conti in his area.
Cristiano Ronaldo missed the penalty on 15 'kicking him on the post.
The action went on and Rebic was sent off at 16 ' for a dangerous entry on Danilo.
With the Rossoneri in ten men, Juventus has always started playing in Milan's midfield but without great results.
At 21 ', Matuidi kicked from two steps but his central conclusion was rejected by Donnarumma.
Milan's first sharp at 40 ', Romagnoli hit a header on Calhanoglu's cross directly from a free kick, his conclusion came out by a whisker.
The first half ended on the result of zero to zero , with Juve clearly favored for qualifying for the Italian Cup final because it is in numerical superiority.
Pioli removed Bonaventura after 51 minutes of play to put an attacker (Leao) on the pitch.
At the time of the change, Bonaventura reacted to his manager because he did not consider himself worthy of this substitution.
At 70 ', Kjaer risked the own goal to anticipate De Ligt's head but the result remains zero on zero.
It is over, Juve drew 0 to 0 and qualified for the final where they will face the winner of Napoli-Inter.
Football in the time of the coronavirus, in our country we start with the Italian Cup.
Italian football restarts with the Italian Cup after a stop of over three months.
Italy starts playing again after Germany and Spain but before England.
All matches will be played behind closed doors , without fans it will be a limp kick but it is inevitable in the coexistence phase with the coronavirus.
The players, as well as all the members of the teams, have learned to live with all the anti-coronavirus safety rules.
Players are monitored continuously with swabs on swabs.
All structures, from training to stadiums, are sanitized and ventilated in a maniacal way.
Teams will play practically every two days, which is why the number of substitutions allowed has risen to five per team.
The calendar is already exhausting and for this reason the extra times have been abolished both for the semifinals and for the Italian Cup final.
In the event of a tie at the end of the ninety minutes of play, penalties will be taken.
A referee's decision can only be protested remotely and only the team captain can do so.
So we should no longer see the players who surround the referee to condition him.
You will be able to celebrate after a goal scored but without hugs which are categorically prohibited.
Perhaps even our players will rejoice by giving their elbows like in Germany.
Spitting is strictly prohibited because a sick footballer could infect many others in this way.
And then there are many other great little nuances that we will learn about during these particular matches behind closed doors at the time of covid 19.
