Yesterday, Wednesday, Napoli won the Italian Cup champions' victory by defeating Juventus on a penalty shootout 4-2, after a negative tie in the original time of the final match at the Olympic Stadium in Rome, behind closed doors. The two teams resorted to extraordinary penalty shootouts instead of taking two additional runs, in order to reduce the physical burden on players who have just returned to the stadiums after stopping since March due to the outbreak of the new Corona virus, and to resume the local league starting this weekend.

It is the first title for Napoli in the competition since 2014 and the sixth in its history, while Juventus failed to raise the cup for the fifth time in the last six seasons and boost its record (13 titles so far).
Napoli deprived his former coach, Maurizio Sari, of the opening of the title record with Juventus, who received his supervision at the beginning of the current season, and also soured the "old lady" his preparations to resume the league title with Lazio, who is lagging behind the "old lady" by only two points.

And just like the first game after Juventus returned home to Milan without goals in the second leg of the semi-final last Friday, Cristiano Ronaldo did little to compensate for the penalty he missed in that match.

After spending three seasons with Napoli, where he struggled fiercely for the domestic league title with Juventus before leaving the South Club for his feud with the controversial club owner also Aurelio de Laurentis, Sari failed to avoid another embarrassing defeat in front of the South Club after he suffered on his first return To the San Paolo stadium last January when his new team fell 1-2.

He also failed to win his second title only in a training career that started thirty years ago, after he won with Chelsea last season in «Europa League».

Napoli succeeded in repeating the result of the last confrontation between the two teams in the cup final in 2012 when it beat the "old lady" with two goals scored by Uruguayan Edinson Cavani and Slovakian Marek Hamsik.

Wednesday's fourth match between the two teams was on a neutral stadium, and Napoli was devoted to his superiority away from his stronghold and Turin, by winning a third time after the Italian Cup 2011-2012 season and the Super Cup season 2014-2015, while Juventus won once the Super Cup 2012-2013 season.
