Lazio celebrate Coppa triumphItalian football's governing body had to reschedule the penultimate fixture of the season at the request of UEFA, who want to prepare the Stadio Olimpico for the final of the UEFA Champions League next week.

While Lazio have successfully achieved a place in the inaugural UEFA Europa League by winning the Coppa Italia last week, Reggina are battling for their top-flight status.
