Sports Mole previews Tuesday's Coppa Italia semi-final first leg between Juventus and Lazio at the Juventus Stadium.

Two of Italy's biggest clubs meet in the semi-finals of the Coppa Italia on Tuesday as Lazio travel to Juventus for the first leg of their last-four tie.

Lazio saw off Catania 3-0 in the last round, while Juve had to overcome AC Milan 2-1 in extra time to make it through.

The two sides drew 0-0 in Turin when they met in Serie A earlier in the season.

Andrea Pirlo remains a doubt for the hosts, while Fabio Quagliarella and Giorgio Chiellini remain sidelined. Meanwhile, Kwadwo Asamoah is on Africa Cup of Nations duty with Ghana.

Miroslav Klose and Marius Stankevicius are both expected to miss out for the visitors.
