VOTD: Juventus' Primavera does like the senior squad, lift a shiny trophy

One of the biggest things since Beppe Marotta took over as Juventus director general was to not only make the primavera squad competitive again, but bring in some of the best youngsters around Italy and Europe. Marotta, Fabio Paratici, and their group of noble scouts have gone far and wide to acquire such talents, while also signing young Italian players to develop in the youth ranks.

I think it's safe to say they've done a pretty decent job of that.

From the match report on the Juventus website:

A magnificent extra-time Federico Mattiello strike settled a dramatic two-legged showdown with Napoli to seal the Primavera's fourth Coppa Italia triumph.

Having edged ahead on aggregate through Stefano Padovan's 56th minute penalty, Marco Baroni's side were forced to play an additional 30 minutes after Soma Novothny rose highest in the area to bring the scores level in the dying stages of normal time.

But a sensational extra-time solo effort from Mattiello broke Napoli hearts to seal an unforgettable victory in the cauldron of the San Paolo.

With the top spot in the primavera playoff already locked up, Tuesday's triumph in Naples may not be the only time that the Juve youngsters lift a trophy this season. Winning both the Scudetto and the possibly primavera championship? Hey, not a bad little sweep, gents.

And hey, they now have bragging rights over the senior squad. "When was the last time you guys won the Coppa Italia, huh, jerks?" Maybe they'd say it a little nicer than that, but you get the gist of what I'm trying to say.
