How Napoli has reigned in the eternal city

The almost 35 000 people who died from COVID-19 in Italy would have been able to fill half of the 70 000-seat Stadio Olimpico, and the patron saint of Naples Gennaro Gattuso has overcome a personal tragedy by being present after his sister Francesca has recently lost his battle with cancer at the age of 37 years. .

Remarkably in the course of his 30-year career in management, Sarri has won the Coppa Italia Serie D that, with Sansovino.

The former boss of Chelsea has been saw cut a lone figure as he cherished his medal in the Europa League there are 13 months, but back in its native Italy, the success on his former club would have been classified among its modest achievements.

When Juventus was defeated by Napoli in Serie A in February, Sarri has angered sections of the fan base of the Old Lady after said that if he were to lose against someone, he was pleased that his old club.

But after being beaten by Lazio in the final of the Supercoppa Italiana in December, questions will arise as to whether he is the right candidate in a club deemed to be winners in the series.

Team news

  • Napoli has made four changes to the team that beat Inter Milan in the semi-finals, with the departure of Meret, Rui, Ruiz and Callejon.
  • Juventus has made the only change from the team that eliminated AC Milan in a penalty shoot-when Cuadrado has come to Danilo.

The challenge since the arrival of Gattuso in Naples as the successor to Carlo Ancelotti has ally style and substance. A first piece of silverware since the success of the Supercoppa Italiana in 2014 was proposed, and his team was the closest to breaking the deadlock in the first 45 minutes.

Lorenzo Badge hit the woodwork with his free-kick from 25 yards after 24 minutes, before the shooting of Diego Demme is saved by the legs of Gianluigi Buffon. This is a new Badge that was close on the stroke of half-time seeing for the first time a shot was cleared from underneath the crossbar by Alex Sandro before testing Buffon from close range.

Juventus, despite their domination of possession, created very little opportunities in the first period with an error of Jose Callejon, allowing Rodrigo Bentancur test Meret remote, but the chances were precious in a delicate matter.

After the interval, Matteo Politano has been a waste when he lifted his shot from the centre of Giovanni Di Lorenzo as both managers began to ring the changes.

Leonardo Bonucci and Dybala’s efforts to hedge at a distance who have not bothered Meret, but Juventus were indebted to Buffon just when the match seemed destined for penalties.

Man of the match – Alex Meret

Gattuso arrived in a club and broke and fractured at its arrival last December, but a sign of the unity that it has brought in a short time has been characterized by the performance of Meret during its first appearance in the season’s Coppa Italia.

David Ospina is unnecessarily suspended in the victory in the semi-final against Inter Milan, but Meret took advantage of the opportunity by making stops early before denying Dybala during the shooting.

And after?

Juventus will face Bologna so that it resumes its quest for a ninth title in Serie A consecutive Monday at 20.45. Napoli – sixth – went to Verona the following evening (kick-off: 18: 30).
