The Juventus of Turin conquered this Wednesday the ninth Italian Super Cup of his record after defeating the Naples (2-0) in a final played at the Mapei stadium, in the city of Reggio Emilia, thanks to the goals of Cristiano Ronaldo, that made history, and of Alvaro Morata, which closed the ‘bianconera’ party in the added time.
The ‘Vecchia Signora’ retaliated for their defeat in the final a year ago against Lazio and this Wednesday they won their first title of the course after going through some difficulties, especially in the final stretch of the match. Cristiano Ronaldo was the one who opened the scoring with a goal for history.
The former Real Madrid player totals 760 official goals in his sports career, a figure that makes him the most prolific scorer in the entire history of football. The Portuguese only needed to become owner of a rejection in the small area to shoot the Neapolitan goal. The Juventinos’ goal forced the reaction of the team led by Gennaro Gattuso.
It was when the best chances came, including a penalty on Mertens that was squandered by Lorenzo Insigne with ten minutes to go. The launch went out and with it the hopes of the celestial group. By contrast, Andrea Pirlo’s pupils took advantage of the spaces to place the 2-0 in Álvaro Morata’s boots.
The Spaniard – who received a great pass from Juan Cuadrado – is the only Juventus player to have scored in all four competitions and put the perfect finishing touch on a good night for the king of Italy. It is the ninth Juve Super Cup, which commands the tournament’s record.
