Juventus has won three of the last four Italian Super Cups, winning back-to-back in 2012 and 2013 before falling on penalty kicks to Napoli in 2014 and defeating Lazio in 2015. It is the first time since 2003 that Juve and Milan will play for the Super Cup, the Turin side defeat Milan on penalty kicks in that outing.
A win would complete a second straight domestic treble for Juve, who won Serie A and the Coppa Italia earlier this year. Juve defeated Milan 1-0 to win the Coppa Italia.
But times have changed since May. Manuel Locatelli’s 65th-minute goal lifted Milan to a 1-0 victory over Juve in league play in October at San Siro. There was some controversy in the match as Miralem Pjanic ’s free kick was disallowed on an offside call against Medhi Benatia, even though he didn’t interfere with the play.
Juve Manager Max Allegri has seen his team rattle off four straight wins across all competitions since losing to Genoa on Nov. 28.
The match will close out the 2016 calendar year with a significant milestone, with goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon will make his 600th career cap for the Bianconeri.
