The old lady defeats Napoli, 2-0
Juventus ” The Old Lady”, wins the Super Cup. For Juventus it is the ninth Super Cup on the bulletin board, which is worth a considerable amount in terms of self-esteem.
Juventus extends Napoli 2-0 with the signatures of Cristiano Ronaldo and Morata: the Supercoppa takes off in Turin, but beyond the trophy the Old Lady gets an important success to find the road that seemed lost after the blackout in San Siro stadium. The “bianconeri” did not shine in a very blocked match, especially in the first half. The difference was made by the champions of the two teams: CR7 found the paw that gave liveliness to the match, Insigne missed the penalty that would have prolonged the contest in extra time, before the icing on the cake of Morata in full recovery. The best chance for Napoli, happens on Insigne’s feet, after a naive foul committed in the area by McKennie on Mertens and certified as a penalty by the Var. On the overturn in front, Cuadrado flies away and serves Morata a perfect ball for the 2-0. The Super Cup thus ends in Turin. Along with a big confidence boost in the most difficult moment.
