    A history of the Bianconeri’s successes in the Italian Super Cup from 1996 to present

    17 January 1996  Juventus-Parma 1-0

    The 1995 Super Cup was played at the start of the following year, and was a further duel in the prolonged battle of encounters between Juventus and Parma that had seen them contest the Scudetto, Coppa Italia and Uefa Cup all in the same season. Gianluca Vialli appeared out of the dense fog to score the winning tap-in just after the half-hour mark, and despite Angelo Peruzzi’s dismissal later in the first half it was a goal that allowed the Bianconeri to lift the trophy for the first time in their history. 

    23 August 1997  Juventus-Vicenza 3-0

    Filippo Inzaghi and Antonio Conte were the key figures in a resounding victory over Vicenza that night in 1997. The former scored a double to put the Bianconeri safely ahead before Juventus’ current manager netted to secure the win. Both were outstanding throughout. The first goal began with a Gianluca Pessotto cross that Inzaghi steered onto the post. The ball bounced off towards the Vicenza goalkeeper, but in attempting to avoid the path of the onrushing Alessandro Del Piero, Pierluigi Brivio was only able to push it to where Inzaghi was waiting to slot comfortably home. The second came from a moment of genius from Conte, whose outstretched reverse pass from the left side found the number nine unmarked at the far post, where he duly produced the finish that the move deserved. The midfielder then put the win beyond doubt when he fired home from 20 yards. The assist had come from Inzaghi, on an incredible debut for the club. 

    25 August 2002  Juventus-Parma 2-1

    Juventus’ third Super Cup title was won in Tripoli, Libia, where the two managers trying to get the better of each other from the dugouts - Marcello Lippi and Cesare Prandelli - would both go on to take charge of the Italian national team. The driving force in the win was Del Piero, whose double could not be overcome by a solitary goal from Marco di Vaio, a few days later to make a move to Torino. But if it was Del Piero who took the headlines, equally important were the team-mates who provided the assists: one a through ball from Marcelo Salas and the other a cross from the right flank by Marcelo Zalayeta.

    3 August 2003  Juventus-Milan 6-4 (pens)

    A year on from their previous win, Juventus faced Milan in New York in a repeat of the Champions League final that took place at Old Trafford just months before. Just like on that night in Manchester, the game finished 0-0 after 90 minutes, but here the goalless encounter sprung into life in the first few minutes of extra time: the Rossoneri took the lead after an Andrea Pirlo chip but Juve immediately struck back through David Trezeguet. Not a single one of Marcello Lippi’s five penalty takers missed, whereas Cristian Brocchi was stopped by Gigi Buffon. With the title riding on whether Ciro Ferrara could convert the next spot kick, he was a picture of tranquility and ensured that Juve would get their hands on the trophy for the fourth time. 

    11 August 2012  Juventus-Napoli 4-2 (after extra-time)

    In an enthralling encounter in Beijing, Antonio Conte got revenge over Walter Mazzarri - the only manager to have beaten the Bianconeri in the previous season with victory in the Coppa Italia - despite being confined to the stands. Napoli had the better of the first half: Kwadwo Asamoah scored with a stunning left-footed strike, but Edison Cavani and Goran Pandev put the Azzurri in front. Arturo Vidal made it 2-2 from the spot after the break to take the game to extra-time, where Conte’s men were victorious following an own goal by Cristian Maggio and a Vucinic finish.
