THE CHRONICLE – Few changes on both sides compared to the eleven seen in the respective semi-finals: in the Old Lady there is Cuadrado instead of Danilo, while in Naples the news is more numerous (Meret, Mario Rui, Fabian Ruiz is Callejon). Just against Milan, Sarri’s team starts off strong, taking possession of the ball and pressing the opponents high. The first chance of the race arises from an error in the setting of the blues, with Meret saying 5 ‘to the attempt to Ronaldo. For the second conclusion we have to wait for the 19th minute, when Bentancur tries, which however does not create any problems for Meret. The punishment of Insigne, which is printed on the pole. The blues are close to the advantage two more times in thirty seconds: first it is Demme to severely engage Buffon, then it’s up to Insigne, but the Juventus goalkeeper is attentive. Previously, it was Meret who stood on the shields with a low exit on Ronaldo. The score does not unlock and so it goes to the interval on 0-0.
At the start of the second half, Napoli became the favorite and almost 60 ‘ Fabian Ruiz does not frame the big target after a nice blue combination. Dybala’s placed football is also insidious, but Meret doesn’t scoff. Even more greedy is the chance that occurs on the feet of the newly entered Milik, which from the center of the Juventus area shoots the ball well above the crossbar. Same result for Insigne’s left-handed shot, albeit from a much more secluded position. Finally, it is incredible what happens in the 92nd minute, when – on the development of a corner – Maksimovic and Elmas they are walled up by a superlative Buffon, who “gives” his penalties.
THE PENALTIES – Dybala and Danilo are immediately wrong from the spot, Insigne and Politano don’t. Bonucci unlocks Juve, but Napoli is infallible and Milik gives the Italian Cup to his team.
