The Bianconere have done it! After a 22-league match season couldn’t separate Juventus Women and Brescia, Juve won the title when a goalless 120 minutes ended in a 5-4 penalty shootout win.
It was a battling first half display between the two sides at the Stadio Silvio Piola, with Juventus Women going closest to opening the scoring, when forward Barbara Bonansea nearly got on the end of a threatening corner inside the opening 10 minutes. Up the other end, Brescia too created a good chance of their own on the counterattack, which ended with Daniela Sabatino heading just wide of Laura Giuliani’s goal.
Brescia went close to scoring in 63rd minute of the second half, as Giuliani was forced to rush out of goal to intercept a forward ball and the opponents tried to capitalise on a mis-cued clearance but Juventus Women number one was able to rush back to goal to claim. The Bianconere attempted to sway the momentum back in their favour and were denied by only the woodwork shortly after, when Bonansea got away a shot goal with a clever turn in the box that came back agonisingly off the crossbar.
