Lazio Upset Juventus In Italian Super Cup

Lazio  defeated Juventus 3-2 at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday night to claim their fourth Italian Super Cup.

Ciro Immobile scored the first goal of the match from the penalty spot in the 32nd minute.

Immobile then scored his second of the night to make it 2-0 for Lazio with a looping header from a Marco Parolo cross in the 54th minute.

Paulo Dybala reduced the deficit five minutes to the end of the game with a freekick to the bottom left corner,  Lazio’s Albanian keeper Thomas Strakocha badly positioned and unable to reach the ball.

Dybala then equalised from the penalty spot but just when Juventus smelt blood Alessandro Murgia profited from a Jonathan Lukaku cross and he simply stroked the ball into the net on the dot of 90 minutes.

Serie A champions Juventus had been successful on seven occasions in the Super Cup.
