ITALIAN SUPER CUP 2016

Khalifa International Stadium in Doha, 23 December 2016

Two images of the Rossoneri’s triumph against Juventus stand out from the rest: Donnarumma’s incredible dive to save Dybala’s penalty, and Allegri’s solemn anger at the awards ceremony. In fact, the Bianconeri really wanted to win that trophy and arrived in Qatar one day before AC Milan. However, on the pitch, Montella's team played exceptionally well with Galliani and Serginho watching on from the stands.

That Juventus team was incredibly good, created many chances and took the lead via Chiellini. But after Alex Sandro came off for Evra, the Rossoneri composed themselves and found an equaliser through Bonaventura in the 38th minute before then creating several opportunities to take the lead in the second half and in extra time. Juve also pushed hard, but AC Milan stood firm and it was the Rossoneri who were more precise with their penalties, just as they were thirteen years earlier in Manchester. Thus, the Italian Super Cup returned to Milan just as it had done seven times between 1989 and 2016.
