    Andrea Zanchetta’s side lift the inaugural Memorial Mamma Cairo trophy after beating Pippo Inzaghi’s Milan youngsters on penalties at the Stadio Giuseppe Moccagatta in Alessandria

    It was a Sunday of great success for all at Juventus, with the Primavera adding to the first team’s Super Cup victory by bringing a new piece of silverware of their own to the club’s trophy cabinet: the Memorial Mamma Cairo cup.

    The talented young side got the better of Pippo Inzaghi’s Milan in a penalty shoot-out at Alessandria’s Stadio Giuseppe Moccagatta to lift the trophy.

    The fact that a title was up for grabs perhaps contributed to the tenseness of the encounter that ended goalless after normal time, after which it moved on to be decided by penalties.

    Juve were faultless from the spot, with Pol Garcia Tena, Matteo Gerbaudo, Nicolas Canizares, Jose Cevallos  and Bnou Marzouk all converting. Gianmarco Vannucchi did the rest, saving from Mihael Modic to ensure victory.

    The Bianconeri youngsters, who are also set to face Lazio in their own Super Cup (with the date still to be confirmed), had beaten Inter 3-2 to reach the final against the Rossoneri, an Inter side who clinched third place with a 2-0 victory against Torino.

    Coming top in a tournament made up of some of the best Primavera sides in the country certainly bodes well for the Juve team’s chances in the upcoming campaign. Their season begins next Saturday against Spezia at Chisola in Vinovo.
