    Vicenza were undone by goals from Antonio Conte and Pippo Inzaghi in a 3-0 Juventus win that saw them lift yet another trophy under Marcello Lippi

    Just as they have been this month, Juventus were also victorious in the Italian Super Cup on this day in August 1997. In front of their own fans at the Stadio Delle Alpi, it was a special triumph.

    The win saw Marcello Lippi add to his already impressive haul as Bianconeri manager – two Scudetto titles, a Champions League, an Intercontinental Cup and a European Super Cup – with his second domestic Super Cup title.

    Having lifted their 24th Scudetto at the end of the 1996/7 season, Lippi’s men’s opponents were Vicenza, surprise winners of the Coppa Italia.

    The Veneto-based side, under the management of current Udinese boss Francesco Guidolin, continued to surprise by holding Juventus to a 0-0 draw throughout the first half.

    But after the interval a new face in the black and white stripes provided the spark that set the game alight. Pippo Inzaghi it was who began his Juve career in style with two goals in the space of just a few minutes. With the end drawing near, captain Antonio Conte stepped up to put an end to any Vicenza hopes by making it 3-0.
