Italian champions Juventus meet Cup winners Lazio in the 2019 Supercoppa Italiana final this evening.

Juventus

Juventus will be looking to close, what has been a decade to remember, with another trophy when they meet Lazio at the King Saud University Stadium in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia tonight.

The Bianconeri have lifted 16 titles in the 2010s, including eight consecutive Scudetti and reached two UEFA Champions League finals, unfortunately losing to Barcelona and Real Madrid respectively.

They are heading into the Super Cup Final following a 2-1 away win at Sampdoria in midweek, which saw Cristiano Ronaldo net one of the most attractive goals of the season.

Lazio

Coppa Italia holders Lazio travel to Saudi Arabia for the Italian Super Cup encounter with Juventus on the back of a fantastic eight-game winning streak in the domestic championship.

One of their victims in the process was exactly the Bianconeri, as Simone Inzaghi became the first manager to defeat Maurizio Sarri’s Juventus.

The Eagles claimed the Supercoppa Italiana for the last time in 2017, beating Juve 3-2 after thrilling final 10 minutes of the encounter.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored the decisive goal in last year’s edition of the Italian Super Cup, as Juventus defeated AC Milan (1-0) to lift the Supercoppa tophy for the eight time in history.

The Portuguese striker has scored in his last five outings across all competitions, finally returning to his beast mode after a slow start of the 2019-20 campaign.
