There was no goal scored in the first 80 minutes of the match and the match seemed to be going towards a goalless draw. But, that wasn’t the case to be. The Juventus players lifted the standard of their game in the last 10 minutes and fired in a couple of goals to secure the win.
The first goal was scored by Martin Caceres in the 80th minute. The goal was set up by Andrea Pirlo. Just after a couple of minutes, the lead of Juventus was doubled when Paul Pogba put the ball into the net with a brilliant left footed volley from a distance of 25 yards.
Conte looked very happy after winning the match. In the post match press conference, the Juventus manager said, “Napoli had been playing pretty well in the tournament and to register a win against them was not going to be an easy task. But, the boys rose to the occasion and put up another brilliant performance.”
