Juventus Lift Super Cup

Goals from Paul Pogba, Giorgio Chiellini, Stephan Lichtsteiner and Carlos Tevez saw Juventus cruise to a 4-0 victory over Lazio in the Italian Super Cup on Sunday night.

It was a sprout of three goals in five minutes in the second half that saw the Serie A champions surge to such a convincing win.

Juventus, though, did not have it all their own way as Lazio threatened early on and only the brilliance of Gianluigi Buffon kept them in the game.

In the third minute of the match Buffon was called into action, denying Cristian Ledesma from the edge of the box.

Juventus then suffered what looked to be a big set-back as Claudio Marchisio had to leave the field injured and was replaced by Pogba in the 20th minute.

The early substitute, however, worked for Juventus as Pogba gave them the lead three minutes after coming on, turning in a deflected cross following a clever Andrea Pirlo free-kick, 1-0.

In the 33rd minute Buffon kept his side in the lead, making yet another good save, this time palming away a Stefan Radu shot.

The second 45 saw Juventus take the game away from Lazio as they scored three goals in five minutes.

Juventus' goal flood began in the 51st minute when Lichtsteiner led a counter-attack before playing the ball inside to Chiellini, who swept it past Federico Marchetti, 2-0.

Lichtsteiner got his own name on the scoresheet two minutes later as he flicked the ball past the keeper with the outside of his boot having created some space for himself, 3-0.

Tevez then capped off the scoring on his competitive debut for the club in the 56th minute, finishing from close range after Marchetti had denied both Lichtsteiner and Pogba with a fine double save, 4-0.

After going four up Juventus took their foot off the pedal and seemed content to play keep ball as they walked away with the Italian Super Cup.
