NAPOLI WIN COPPA ITALIA BEAT JUVENTUS ON PENALTIES

Napoli goalkeeper Alex Meret saved Paolo Dybala’s penalty and Arkadiusz Milik scored from the spot-kick to crown Napoli the Coppa Italia Champion, beating Juventus on penalties after dismal 0-0 draw.

Former Chelsea and Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri, was denied the silverware having returned to Italy after winning the Europa Cup with Chelsea to become Old Lady Coach. The match ended 4-2 in a day Danilo failed to convert from the spot.

Juventus will return to the domestic league at the restart of the Serie A after the lockdown due to COVID -19 pandemic, which nearly 35,000 people died from the pandemic in Italy. Although the Old Lady fans that were not present at the 70,000 Stadio Olimpico to watch the match will look forward to overcome the disappointment by lifting the ninth straight Scudetto when the Serie A resume.

Napoli Coach and former AC Milan midfielder, Gennaro Gattuso became a hero, in just 17 games for the club, winning the Coppa Italia and securing their first piece of silverware since 2014. Although, it was in almost in difficult thought, if he will be present at the game having lost his sister.

“The world of football has given me more than I deserved,” he said. “But you always think of your family first. In life, when what has happened happens to you, you don’t digest it.” Gattuso said.

His sister Francesca died at the age of 37, after battle with cancer.

With the win Napoli automatically qualify for the Europa Legue Group stage, thanks to Arkadiusz Milik spot-kick which cut short the celebration of Sarri to a lonely figure after winning the Europa Cup 13 months ago, which could have ranked him high winning against his former club Napoli.
