A spectacular and exciting semi-final saw the Juventus Primavera squad beat Palermo to reach the final of the domestic championship. Chiarenza's boys recorded a 3-2 win over the Sicilians in a combative encounter that was highly dramatic from start to finish.
The Bianconeri took the lead 37' into the first half through a magnificent Giovinco free-kick and doubled their advantage after the break with a splendid solo goal from Paolucci whose scissor-kick beat the opposition keeper following a perfect pass from Del Prete. Although at this point the game seemed closed, Palermo clawed a goal back from Terranova's header. However, Juventus managed to hang on to their lead and Paolucci scored his second of the evening, and his 26th of the season, in the first minute of injury time afer good counter-attacking play from the bianconeri. It wasn't finished there though. In the 49' minute of the second half Carbonaro scored with a neat lob that gave the Sicilians some consolation.
Victory ensured Juventus a place in the final where they are set to meet Fiorentina,who beat Milan 2-1 in the other semi-final, in the 'Romeo Neri' stadium in Rimini at 21:00 on Thursday 8th June.
