Belgian defender Koni De Winter remained on the bench of the Old Lady. The Turinese, fifth in Serie A, opened the scoring before half an hour of play thanks to the American Weston McKennie, scorer of the head on a center of Alvaro Morata (0-1, 25th). The Inters, defending champions and first after 20 days, responded quite quickly on a penalty obtained by Edin Dzeko and transformed into force by Lautaro Martinez (1-1, 35th).
Unable to decide, the two teams had to play extra time. As the penalty shootout loomed after a committed Italian derby, Alexis Sanchez appeared to offer the trophy to the Nerazzurri in the 121st minute of play.
Simone Inzaghi’s Inter succeeded their opponent of the day and won their sixth Super Cup, the first since 2010.
