Juventus v Napoli Live Commentary & Result, 20/01/2021, Super Cup | Goal.com


21′ Kulusevski clumsily fouls Mario Rui on the edge of the box, presenting Insigne with an exciting shooting opportunity. However, his resulting effort is tame and it drifts harmlessly into Szczesny’s grasp.    

19′ Juventus win another corner following Koulibaly’s clearance, but this time Demme heads it away at the near post.

17′ Napoli make a rare foray forward, but Di Lorezno’s angled cross is glanced well wide by Petagna.  

14′ Juventus have looked really bright early on. There were concerns that they would still be reeling from that defeat to Inter on Sunday, but the Turin club have quickly stamped out any worries so far.

12′ Juventus sweep forward with another flowing move that ends with Ospina saving brilliantly from Chiesa! However, the linesman quickly raised his flag and a goal wouldn’t have stood.

10′ Kulusevski and McKennie work a clever interchange down the right flank, allowing the former to cut back a neat cross to Arthur who curls a decent shooting opportunity well over from the edge of the box.

9′ Napoli struggle repeatedly to clear their lines from the resulting set-piece, until Lozano finally hooks it back over the halfway line.

7′ Ronaldo jags past Bakayoko before slamming a deflected effort over the bar from 25 yards.

5′ Both sides have started with a pedestrian tempo in possession as they look to avoid making any early mistakes in this final.

3′ Bentancur snatches possession away from Zielinski and Juventus proceed to pass it around the back cautiously as they settle into the game.

1′ Napoli get the first half underway.

The players are emerging from the tunnel and kick off is just seconds away! 

Juventus have featured in each of the last eight Super Cups, winning the trophy on four occasions.

Napoli, on the other hand, beat Fiorentina 6-0 on Sunday and they make just one change – Hysaj makes way for Di Lorenzo.
