      The Bianconere add the Italian Super Cup to their growing trophy cabinet

      Juventus Women were crowned Italian Super Cup Champions after defeating Fiorentina Women 2-0 at Orogel Stadium Dino Manuzzi in Cesena on Sunday afternoon. Cristiana Girelli and Andrea Staskova both got on the scoresheet, as the Bianconere took home the only trophy that was had eluded them so far.

      The two teams have become familiar foes over the last two seasons, with the Bianconere having claimed the most recent victory – the Coppa Italia trophy won in May. Rita Guarino went for her trusted 4-3-3 formation, with Eniola Aluko, Cristiana Girelli and Valentina Cernoia forming a three-prong attack.

      FIRST HALF

      The attack of the game came in the fourth minute, when Cernoia delivered in a cross into the box which saw Girelli get onto the end of it, and she directed her header just wide. It was all Juventus in the open stages of the game, and they took the lead through Girelli in 11th minute. Cernoia was once again crucial to the attacking play, as she thread the ball through to Girelli, who turned it past the Viola goalkeeper. The Bianconere remained in control of the first half, by forcing Fiorentina to resort to taking shots from range. Eniola Aluko then delivered a delightful cross in the 35th minute of play, which met the head of Sofie Pedersen, but she nodded it just wide of goal.

      SECOND HALF

      The Bianconere started the second half in excellent fashion when Cernoia crossed the ball into the box, Girelli nodded it down towards Aluko, who then fired at goal and struck the upright. So nearly a two-goal lead! Martina Rosucci then had a chance of her own seconds later, but it went out wide at the far post. Rita Guarino’s ladies were still creating the majority of the chances, and next up it was Aurora Galli who fired a shot from range, which went out by inches. Maria Alves was then introduced into the game in the 58th minute in place of Rosucci, while Breitner fired a curling effort towards Laura Giuliani’s goal, but it didn’t test the Bianconere stopper. With 13 minutes remaining on the clock, Ariana Caruso was also introduced into the game as she added a fresh pair of legs to the game, in which the Bianconere dominated from start to finish, despite a late scare in which the Fiorentina attack saw a ball glance across the face of goal, but it was dealt with by the Juventus backline. 88 minutes into the match, Eni Aluko was replaced with who was to be the player that secured the trophy celebration for Juve. Andrea Stašková entered the pitch and made an instant impact as it only took the Czech player two minutes to find herself in on goal, making no doubt as she calmly placed the ball past Ohrstrom, giving the Bianconere the 2-0 win.
