ROME (Reuters) – Two late goals gave Lazio a 2-0 Coppa Italia final win over Atalanta at the Stadio Olimpico on Wednesday.

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic headed in from a corner eight minutes from time before Joaquin Correa’s solo goal settled a nervy match in stoppage-time.

It was the seventh time Lazio have won the competition and their first triumph since 2013, the capital club’s victory ending four years of Juventus dominance in Italy’s domestic cup competition.

The victory also earned Lazio a place in the Europa League group stage for next season.
