Internazionale has conquered the Supercoppa Italiana for the sixth time thanks to a goal in the very last minute of extra time.
In the Italian version of the Johan Cruijff scale, the reigning national champion took on Juventus, the winner of the cup, at home. Inter drew the longest straw in San Siro thanks to a goal from Chilean Alexis Sánchez: 2-1.
At Inter, Orange internationals Stefan de Vrij and Denzel Dumfries were given a basic place. Matthijs de Ligt did not play for Juventus. He is serving a suspension after his red card in last Sunday’s league match against AS Roma.
The home team started the game as favorites. Inter are leading the league and are on a good run of eight wins in a row. Juventus, which is fifth, won the Supercoppa Italiana for the ninth time last year.
Inter eagerly started the game, looking for the first prize of the year. De Vrij had a chance early on, but he aimed just wide. Lautaro Martínez also had a good opportunity to take Inter ahead; he too missed.
On the other hand, after 25 minutes it was hit for Juventus. Weston McKennie headed in a cross from Álvaro Morata, not really bothered by De Vrij.
