Stefano Mauri's late goal handed Lazio the advantage as the first leg of their Coppa Italia semi-final ended in a 1-1 draw away to Juventus.

The hosts went ahead through a Federico Peluso header in the 63rd minute and the Old Lady looked set to take that slender lead into the second leg as the clock ticked down.

But Mauri popped up to level in the 86th minute, turning the ball home at the far post from a corner, to hand Lazio the initiative heading into the return leg at Rome's Stadio Olimpico home next Tuesday.

The second semi-final between Roma and Inter Milan gets under way in the capital on Wednesday night.
