Juventus take on Lazio in the final of the Coppa Italia as they close in towards their second piece of silverware this season, following their recent capture of the Serie A title for the fourth time in a row.

The Old Lady will be brimming with confidence ahead of this fixture due to them having beaten Real Madrid to book their place in the final of the Champions League.

With them having already secured the Serie A title and progressed to the finals of the Coppa Italia and the Champions League, Juventus have a very good chance of completing the treble (a feat that has only been achieved by Inter Milan in Italy) this season.

However, the Old Lady will be currently focused on the Coppa Italia, the competition they last won in 1995, rather than thinking about the treble.

And Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri, despite admitting Lazio will be a difficult opponent in Coppa Italia final on Tuesday, insists that his side will be giving their best to win the competition.

"Tomorrow will be difficult, but we must try and win it," the former AC Milan boss told Goal, adding that winning the Italian Cup would give them a boost ahead of their Champions League final clash against Barcelona on 6 June.

"Winning the Coppa Italia would enable us to prepare for the Champions League final in the best way possible. Juve have won four titles because the club has worked well. Winning again isn't easy and next year will be even tougher," he said.

Lazio, meanwhile, will also be fancying their chances in the Coppa Italia final even though they are the underdogs against Juventus.

The Aquile, who were pretty disappointing in 2013/13, have done well this season as they are currently third in the Serie A and in the finals of the Coppa Italia.

Their journey in the Coppa Italia this season has not been very easy as they had to beat the likes of AC Milan and Napoli in the previous rounds to book a date with Juventus in the final of the competition.

However, now that they have reached the final, Lazio boss Stefano Pioli insists that he is looking to win the competition.

"Now we've got this far, I want to win it," the 49-year-old Italian told Goal. "It's my first final and I'm loving it. I'm proud to have coached such special lads. This is where I had hoped we would arrive from the first day I got to know my players.

"We have worked towards this objective. To be here, in this situation, is gratifying and stimulating. I've really got a taste for it, and now we want to win this final because we deserve it."

Although they face the strongest team in Italy in the final of the Italian Cup in the form of Juventus, who have already beaten them both home and away in the Serie A this season, Pioli insists that their poor form against the Old Lady in the league will not matter when they meet Allegri's men on Tuesday.

"What happened in the league doesn't even come into it," Pioli added. "This is another competition entirely. It's a final. We cannot think about our two previous meetings, from which we have certainly learnt our lesson."

"We need to be at our very best. We've got skill, strength and a great spirit. We know we have to put in an extraordinary effort -- more than usual -- but we are capable of doing it. We are ready for this final, and then to earn our place in the Champions League."
