Chiellini to miss Coppa Italia final

Juventus will be without centre-back Giorgio Chiellini for the Coppa Italia final against Napoli at Rome's Stadio Olimpico this weekend.

The Italy international had to be substituted with just two minutes remaining of Juve's 3-1 win over Atalanta on Sunday, when the Serie A champions completed their unbeaten league season.

The news raises fears that Italy may be missing a key defender for at least part of their upcoming Euro 2012 campaign.

Juventus coach Antonio Conte said: "It was a thigh twinge and he will certainly be out of the Coppa Italia final, but needs more tests."

Victory for Juve on Sunday would seal a third domestic league and cup double for the Turin giants, and see them go an entire season unbeaten in all competitions.
