The tournament’s new format meant that just four victories were enough to achieve trophy success. After struggling to prevail against Alessandria over 90 minutes, Juve hit their straps in extra-time and netted four in the space of half an hour to wrap up a resounding 6-2 triumph. The Bianconeri then coasted into the tournament final following comfortable 3-1 wins in the quarters against Fiorentina and then Genoa in the semis.
Five months later, Juventus contested the grand final against Inter in front of a packed house at the San Siro. Charles and Cervato provided a two-goal lead before the half-hour mark but Nerazzurri midfielder Bicicli brought his side back into the contest when he halved the deficit with 36 minutes on the clock. Sivori restored the two-goal cushion after the restart and then Cervato doubled his personal tally via a converted spot-kick to end Juve’s 17-year drought in the competition and spark scenes of jubilation among the travelling Bianconeri faithful.
