The Red and Blues staged a comeback in the second half, with an early goal from Gianluca Scamacca in the 49th minute. In the end though, Juve, on 70 minutes increased their lead following a Weston McKennie goal and seeing the game end 3-1.

For Juve, Alex Sandro, Paulo Dybala, Weston McKennie, Arthur and Aaron Ramsey, came on for Valon Behrami, Davide Biraschi, Nicolo Rovella, Goran Pandev and Gianluca Scamacca.
