The surprise Serie A loss to Roma helped fire Juve up for the Coppa Italia final win over Lazio, according to the defender Leonardo Bonucci thanked Roma for giving Juventus a "wake-up call" after they lifted the Coppa Italia with a 2-0 win over Lazio on Wednesday.

Juve went into the match at Stadio Olimpico on the back of a 3-1 defeat to Roma on Sunday – a result that denied them the chance to seal the Serie A title.

"Lazio have a lot of quality in attack, so it was natural that in a one-off game we'd let them have chances, but fortunately Neto rescued us," Bonucci said.

Juve can clinch the Scudetto against Crotone on Sunday with a win, although the title will be theirs regardless if Roma lose to Chievo the day before.

Bonucci wants to clinch the domestic crown this week in order to give Juve ample time to prepare for the Champions League final with Real Madrid on June 3.
