10 years ago today, Juventus were in the USA, just like they are now, and about to contest the Italian Super Cup. They came out on top that day in 2003, beating Milan in New York to lift the trophy.
It was the first time the two teams had met since the final of the Champions League at Old Trafford, and the Bianconeri’s revenge was achieved in exactly the same way as that previous encounter had finished: penalties.
The then-Rossoneri man Andrea Pirlo’s strike had been equaled by David Trezeguet, and it was therefore all-square after extra time. Juve were faultless from the spot, with Marco Di Vaio, Trezeguet, Alessandro Birindelli, Mauro Camoranesi and Ciro Ferrara all converting, and Gigi Buffon did his bit by saving from Cristian Brocchi.
Lippi’s men had won their fourth Italian Super Cup, the perfect way to honour the memory of the extraordinary winning ways brought to the club by Vittorio Chiusano, who had sadly passed away just a few days before.
