Juventus Women bid farewell to Rita Guarino in style as they ended off their #F4BULOUS campaign unbeaten and with a 100% record of wins after defeating Inter 5 - 0 on Sunday afternoon at Vinovo.
It took just four minutes for the Bianconere to go two goals clear: Sara Gama tapped in a corner kick to beat the keeper in the third minute, before Girelli added a second with a trademark header from Zamanian’s cross a minute later.
A third goal was so nearly added in the fifth minute of play when Zamanian had her shot palmed away, before Alborghetti cleared Girelli’s effort off the line. It didn’t take long for Guarino’s goals to make it 3-0, however, when Caruso fired in an angled effort from outside that sailed into the far corner.
Hyyrynen grabbed her second goal in the Juventus jersey and the Bianconere’s fourth of the day in the 18th minute when she tapped home Bonansea’s assist from close range. Gama nearly got herself on the scoresheet again when her curling strike was plucked away from the corner by Marchitelli.
Rosucci went down in the box, but the referee waived play on, while Staskova blasted high of the target as the first half came to a close.
With the Bianconere well in command of the game, Doris Bacic was introduced between the goals in place of Giuliani. The hosts continued to control the game with Inter barely getting a look-in at goal. Andrea Staskova scored the fifth and final goal of the game in the 74th minute when she fired past the Nerazzurre goalkeeper. Girelli put the ball into the back of the net on the stroke of the 90, but it didn't stand as it was ruled out for offside.
It was a strong and dominant performance by Juventus, summing up perfectly Guarino's time on the Bianconere bench.
