22 January 2013 10:16

Lazio scored late on to hold Juventus to a 1-1 draw in Turin in the first leg of their Italian Cup semi-final on Tuesday.

Juve dominated the game but only had a Federico Peluso goal just after the hour mark to show for their superiority before Lazio captain Stefano Mauri levelled for the visitors with four minutes remaining.

With the score at 1-0, Arturo Vidal hit the post for Juve and then saw a header cleared off the line by Federico Marchetti.

The return leg will be played in Rome on January 29.

The first leg of the other semi-final, between Roma and Inter at the Stadio Olimpico, will be played on Wednesday, although the return leg of that tie will not be staged until April 17.
