Napoli 0-0 Juventus (4-2 pens): Alex Meret the shootout hero in Coppa Italia final

Napoli beat Juventus 4-2 on penalties to secure the Coppa Italia title after a 0-0 draw at the Stadio Olimpico.

Arkadiusz Milik scored the winning spot-kick after Napoli goalkeeper Alex Meret saved Paulo Dybala’s effort and watched Danilo’s strike sail over his crossbar.

The result means Juve boss Maurizio Sarri’s wait for a first major domestic honour goes on, with Napoli securing their first piece of silverware since 2014.

Juventus will look to overcome the disappointment by lifting a ninth straight Scudetto when Serie A restarts, but the win means Napoli automatically qualify for the Europa League group stage next season.
