Andrea Pirlo already has his first title. Juventus beat Napoli 2-0 and thus won their ninth Italian Super CupThanks above all to a goal that enlarged the legend of Cristiano. The ex-madridista scored the 760th goal of his career, thus surpassing Bican and becoming the greatest scorer of all time. His umpteenth record came with one more title.
The first surprise of the day was the return of Square, absent by covid since December 22 and available thanks to double negative PCR. Pirlo decided to use it from the first minute on the right wing, with Kulusevski next to Cristiano up front.
The Bianconeri tried to take control of the game in the first half, but they hardly found any gaps and the Southerners, on the other hand, gave more sense of danger when they went on the attack. Before the break, in fact, the best time to open the can was for the azzurri, with a beautiful head of Lozano to pass from Demme, miraculously neutralized by Szczesny. The resumption started with bad news for the Turinese, who lost to Church due to injury.
Your substitute, Bernardeschi, touched the 1-0 nothing more to return to the green and from there the champion of Italy woke up. Juve locked up the southerners in their area and a double error by Manolas and Bakayoko led to Cristiano’s goal, who pushed between sticks after a corner his 20th goal in 20 games. Gattuso, there, decided to take out Mertens, that despite not being 100% starred in the play that could change history. The Belgian, in the Juventine area, anticipated McKennie, who hit his ankle instead of the ball.
A clear penalty (which the referee awarded after seeing the VAR images), which however Insigne kicked out. The azzurri, after the error, turned to attack, but, after another great intervention by Szczesny against Lozano, came the backlash of the sentence, which Morata signed. The twelfth goal for the Spaniard unleashed the Bianconera party: a title, as Cristiano said, “to gain confidence”. And leave the crisis behind.
