Lazio have clinched a 1-1 draw in their Coppa Italia semifinal first-leg clash at Juventus.

Juve fullback Federico Peluso’s first goal for the club wasn't enough as the wasteful hosts were punished in the final minutes.

An Antonio Candreva corner was flicked on to the back post for Stefano Mauri to prod his low volley in from five yards, as Paolo De Ceglie seemed to lose his man.

Lazio goalkeeper Federico Marchetti was outstanding on the night, making a string of classy saves including a stunning stop from a looping Arturo Vidal header before Mauri's equaliser.
