Juventus ended the 2017 International Champions Cup on a positive note, earning a 5-4 penalty kick shootout win over Italian rivals Roma after a 1-1 draw over 90 minutes at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts.
Roma had the first major chance of the match in the 14th minute as Diego Perotti found Edin Dzeko unmarked at the top of the box. The forward had time to settle and shoot, but Alex Sandro was there to deflect the shot just wide.
From there, the rest of the first half was all Juventus with Mario Mandzukic nearly opening the scoring in the 23rd minute as a hard, driven cross from Juan Cuadrado found the forward sprinting towards the far post. His sliding shot would go just wide, but it wasn’t long before the Croatian found the match’s first goal.
