Juventus continued its cycle of winning years: for the 10th year in a row the Bianconeri celebrated winning a trophy. Precisely two: the 14th Italian Cup and the ninth Super Cup.
THE ITALIAN SUPER CUP
The new year couldn't have started off in a better manner for the Bianconeri: with a trophy!
It would be the first of two Cup finals Andrea Pirlo would oversee on the Juve bench, and he and the team did not disappoint. Just hours before the game, a big boost came in favour of our lads: Juan Cuadrado had tested negative for Covid-19 and he rushed to be by his teammates' side on the field in Reggio Emilia.
The Colombian's presence would prove crucial in the outcome of the game, as he helped lead the Bianconeri to victory against Napoli by providing an assist to Alvaro Morata in stoppage time to make it 2-0. Cristiano Ronaldo, however, was the first to break the deadlock when he fired home in the 64th minute to put the Lady in front.
It was a #SUPERJUVE triumph at the Mapei Stadium that would lead to the first of trophies won this past season.

THE COPPA ITALIA
It was as if fate had aligned itself with another Bianconeri victory: Juventus found themselves having to take to the field of the very same stadium where they'd won the Super Cup on, but this time against Atalanta in the Italian Cup final.
With the season coming to a close, Pirlo's players were determined to end the campaign with yet another piece of silverware in their trophy cabinet - and they did not fail!
Great urgency was put on display between with sides, but it would be Juventus that drew the first blood: through Kulusevski with half an hour on the clock. Atalanta would then go on to respond just before the stroke of half time, as Malikovskiy struck the ball past Gianluigi Buffon (the final would be his last game ever in Juventus colours).
Still, a re-surging display in the second half by Juventus meant they outplayed the Bergamaschi and it would be Federico Chiesa who struck the Lady's second goal of the day to secure another triumphant victory and crown the club #ITAL14NCUP winners.
