The final of Italian Super Cup between the Juventus and the Lazio will be played at the King Saud University Stadium of Riad. The date and time are lacking to establish, but at this time the favored solution is Sunday 22 December, with kick-off between 17 and 18 Italian or between 19 and 20 in the capital of Saudi Arabia.
Super Cup, Juve-Lazio in the Giovinco stadium
On January 16th, Juventus-Milan was played in Jeddah, while this year there will be a transfer to Riyadh. All within the framework of the contract signed by the League with the Saudi Government which provides, starting with the 2018 Supercup, the organization of three out of five editions in the Arab country. The bianconeri and the biancocelesti, who will have a cachet of 3.5 million each, have already carried out their inspections and are now awaiting the formalization of the date by Via Rosellini. The King Saud University Stadium is the facility where Al-Hilal, the former Juventus team, plays. It is not the main stadium in Riyadh because it has 25,000 seats, just over a third of those of the King Fahd International Stadium (it hosts the matches of Al-Shabab, Al-Nassr and the national team), but it is more central than the other which is outside the city.
Super Cup. Juve-Lazio: doubt given
A rich season began in Riyadh from 7 October with over 120 events of all kinds. Lazio as a date prefers December 22 because on Thursday 12 it will be engaged on the field of Rennes in the Europa League and on Monday 16 it has scheduled the postponement to Cagliari. Playing the other option on Thursday 19 would be impossible. In theory the League could move Cagliari-Lazio to Sunday 15, but it is not easy. Juve has no preferences. And the timetable? The schedule of advances and postponements of the seventeenth day has not yet been defined and there is certainly only the postponement to January of Samp-Juve and Lazio-Verona. If the Super Cup will be played on Sunday 22nd, with a live broadcast on Rai 1 (say at 17.30), there will be no match at 18.00 in Serie A, while there will be a postponement of the 20.45 championship on Sky. If, on the other hand, the chosen date is Thursday 19, the kick-off could also be at 20-20.30 Italian time.
