Napoli crowned Coppa Italia Champions

Napoli defeated Juventus 4-2 in penalty shoot-out to win the Coppa Italia first time since 2014.

In the final played behind the closed doors at the Stadio Olimpico, it ended in goal-less draw in the regulation time and forced the match into the penalty shoot-out.

Juventus’ star Paulo Dybala had his penalty saved followed by bizarre shot by his team-mate Danilo who skies over the bar. Arkadiusz Milik scored the winning penalty to hand Napoli boss Gennaro Gattuso his first major trophy as a manager.

Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri could have added another silverware in his cabinet after winning his first with Premier League side Chelsea in Europa League.

With the completion of the Coppa Italia, now Serie A will resume in Italy from June 20.
