Inter-Napoli 1-0

High-tension Italian Super Cup in Saudi Arabia, with Inter eventually prevailing over Napoli (reduced to 10) 1-0. At Riyadh's Al-Awwal Park Stadium, Cholito Simeone's expulsion for double admonition left the men of a furious Walter Mazzarri in numerical inferiority.

Despite everything, the Parthenopeans managed to resist the Nerazzurri assaults but when it looked like everything was ready or almost ready for penalty kicks, on 90' came the decisive goal by Lautaro Martinez, who deflected a low cross from the right into the goal from a few steps.

Inter thus took home its eighth Italian Super Cup, its third in a row, its second Arab after the derby it dominated against Milan a year ago. Simone Inzaghi è entered the history of Italian soccer, edging out Lippi and Capello in the all-time ranking of the most successful coaches in the competition.
