Juventus chased their 14th Coppa Italia whilst league strugglers Napoli looked for their first trophy in six years. Although they did have to do it against former manager Maurizio Sarri.

Cristiano Ronaldo looked to win his 30th major honour of his career. Compared to Dries Mertens who looked to cap a great week off, having renewed his contract until 2022.

Juventus, who are playing in their 19th final started the game with crisp, precision passing as the Old Lady’s looked to unlock Napoli’s defence.

Cristiano Ronaldo tested Aex Meret early on with a sharp snapshot, but the replacement who starts for the first time since the 3rd February parried to safety.

A Foul conceded by Rodrigo Bentancur gave Lorenzo Insigne the chance to test the veteran Gianluigi Buffon, who looks for his sixth Coppa Italia. However, the Italian saw his sublime fee kick ricochet off the post.

Napoli, who haven’t won a major trophy since this competition in 2014 looked to finish the half strong as Juventus failed to clear their lines, following an Acrobatic defensive clearance by Alex Sandro.

Buffon followed with a quick reaction save after Diego Demme powered his way into the box, but the angle was always against him.

Both teams struggled to create any real opportunities within the opening exchanges. Gennaro Gattusos’ men look well organised as they frustrated the front three of Juventus, especially Ronaldo. The Portuguese has scored 19 goals in competition finals.

Napoli who have won 5 of their 9 competition finals looked the most likely too breakthrough as the second half resumed, as they continued to carve out chances, but don’t test the Italian veteran as much as they hoped. As he saved comfortably from range following a Matteo Politano strike.

Napoli continue to sculpt out chances as substitute Arkadiusz Milik blazed his shot over the bar after losing his marker and creating space for himself in the opposition box.  

A last ditched attacking corner saw Buffon react quickest to keep out Nikola Maksimovic and Elif Elmas as he saved onto the post before Juventus scrambled the ball away. The Old Lady’s were lucky to escape that without conceding.

With the game level after 90 minutes, the teams headed straight to Penalties.

Paulo Dybala stepped up for Juventus first, but Meret guessed the right way, whilst Insigne calmly slotted his penalty into the bottom corner.  

Danilo blazed over his spot kick. Compared to Matteo Politano who powered his penalty past Buffon despite getting a hand to it.   

Leonardo Bonucci gets Juventus on the board. Nikola Maksimovic fired his spot kick down the middle as Aaron Ramsey calmly dispatched his penalty.

Substitute Milik, scored the winning penalty as he found the bottom left corner which gave Napoli their first Coppa Italia since 2014, their sixth in the club’s history.
