Ronaldo scores as Juventus win 9th Italian Super Cup
NEW DELHI [Maha Media]: Juventus won the Italian Super Cup title after securing a 2-0 win over Napoli here.
It was the club's ninth Italian Super Cup title and Andrea Pirlo's first trophy as a manager.
The first half of the game witnessed a tough competition, with both clubs restricting each other from taking the lead.

Napoli had a really good chance of levelling the scores when they were awarded a penalty in the 78th minute. However, Insigne missed the opportunity.
As the match inched closer to its conclusion, Alvaro Morata scored a goal, giving Juventus a 2-0 win in the match.
Juventus will now return to action on Sunday when they face Bologna in Serie A.
