Goals from Cristiano R o n a l d o and Alvaro Morata helped Juventus to beat Napoli 2-0 to win the Italian
Supercup on Wednesday, the annual m e e t i n g between the Coppa Italia winners and Serie A champions. Lorenzo
Insigne spurned a golden chance to equalize for Napoli when he fired a penalty wide in the second half. Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 760th career goal to help Juventus beat Napoli 2-0 and win the Italian Supercup. Napoli, who beat Juventus in the final to win last season’s Coppa Italia, came close to taking the lead midway through the first half, but Hirving Lozano’s bullet header was brilliantly saved by Juve goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny. Substitute Federico Bernardeschi almost made an immediate impact early in the second half but was denied by David Ospina in the Napoli goal, before Ronaldo pounced from close range in the 64th minute. Napoli were then handed a golden opportunity to equalize after Dries Mertens was fouled in the penalty area, but Lorenzo Insigne dragged his spotkick
wide. As Gennaro Gattuso’s side committed bodies forward in stoppage time, Juve broke on the counter with Alvaro Morata making sure of the win that secured Andrea Pirlo his first trophy as a senior coach.
