The 2017 Italian Super Cup showed the fighting spirit of the Bianconeri, but it would end in heartbreak as Juventus fell 3-2 to Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome by way of a stoppage-time winner from Alessandro Murgia.
A pair of goals from Paulo Dybala in the last five minutes dramatically brought Juve back on level terms from a 2-0 deficit, but La Joya's brace ultimately would not be enough on the night.
The Turin side came flying out of the traps from the very first whistle and forced three quick saves out of Lazio goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha. In the 3rd minute, Alex Sandro found plenty of space down the left side cutting into the box and sliding a cross to Juan Cuadrado. The Colombian sent his effort on goal from close range, but Strakosha was there to deny an early opener.
Just seconds later, Dybala and Gonzalo Higuain would also force the Albanian stopper into smart saves to keep Juve off the scoresheet.
