Juve v Inter in Turin

Since the Serie A became a one-division championship there have been 58 meetings between Juventus and Inter in Turin. Of those, the Bianconeri have won 58 (last one 3-0 in 2002/03 Serie A). There have been 15 draws (last one 2-2 in 2003/04 Coppa Italia) and 13 Nerazzurri (last one 1-0 in 2004/05 Serie A). Inter are unbeaten in their last three visits to Turin, with 2 wins and a draw.

The ref: Massimo De Santis

Born in Tivoli (near Rome) on 8 April 1962, Massimo De Santis officiates in an Italian Super Cup for the first time in his refereeing career. He has refereed Juventus 23 times (16 Juve wins, 4 draws and 3 defeats) and Inter on 19 occasions (7 victories, 6 draws and 6 defeats). De Santis has refereed one 'derby d'Italia' - Juventus 0-1 Inter at the Delle Alpi last 20 April.

Coppa Italia winners Super Cup losers since 1999

Serie A champions Juventus meet Coppa Italia holders Inter in tonight's 18th edition of the Italian Super Cup. On fourteen occasions the Scudetto winners have gone on to win the Super Cup, while the domestic cup winners have triumphed three times (Fiorentina in 1996, Lazio in 1998 and Parma in 1999). The past five Super Cups have therefore been lifted by the reigning Italian champions.

Seventh final for Juve, third for Inter

A total of eleven teams have played in an Italian Super Cup. With eight appearances, AC Milan have played more than any other club. Juventus are second with seven appearances: three victories (1995, Juventus 1-0 Parma; 1997, Juventus 3-0 Vicenza; 2002, Juventus 2-1 Parma), 1 draw (AC Milan 1-1 Juventus, 4-6 after pens) and two defeats (1990, Napoli 5- 1 Juventus; 1998, Juventus 1-2 Lazio). Inter have played two Italian Super Cups: one victory (1989, Inter 2-0 Sampdoria) and one defeat (2000, Lazio 4-3 Inter).

Italian Super Cup roll of honour:

1988 AC MILAN 3-1 Sampdoria
1989 INTER 2-0 Sampdoria
1990 NAPOLI 5-1 Juventus
1991 SAMPDORIA 1-0 Roma
1992 AC MILAN 2-1 Parma
1993 AC MILAN 1-0 Torino (played in Washington)
1994 AC MILAN 1-1 Sampdoria (4-3 after pens)
1995 JUVENTUS 1-0 Parma
1996 FIORENTINA 2-1 AC Milan
1997 JUVENTUS 3-0 Vicenza
1998 LAZIO 2-1 Juventus
1999 PARMA 2-1 AC Milan
2000 LAZIO 4-3 Inter
2001 ROMA 3-0 Fiorentina
2002 JUVENTUS 2-1 Parma (played in Tripoli)
2003 JUVENTUS 1-1 AC Milan (6-4 after pens)
2004 AC MILAN 3-0 Lazio

Juventus one away from Milan

Nine different clubs have won the 17 Italian Super Cups played to date. AC Milan are top of the list with 5 wins, followed by Juventus (4), Lazio (2), and Fiorentina, Inter, Napoli, Parma, Roma and Sampdoria (1 each).

Capello invincible in Super Cup

In 17 editions of the competition, ten different coaches have lifted an Italian Super Cup. Fabio Capello (AC Milan 1992, 1993, 1994; Roma 2001) and Marcello Lippi (Juventus 1995, 1997, 2002, 2003) have won 4 each, Sven Goran Eriksson (Lazio 1998, 2000) has won it twice, and Ancelotti (AC Milan 2004), Bigon (Napoli 1990), Boskov (Sampdoria 1991), Malesani (Parma 1999), Ranieri (Fiorentina 1996), Sacchi (AC Milan 1988) and Trapattoni (Inter 1989) have each triumphed once. A win tonight would therefore see Fabio Capello become the most successful Super Cup coach outright with 5 trophies.
Furthermore, Capello has never lost an Italian Super Cup, and faces Mancini for the second time after Roma's 3-0 victory over Fiorentina in 2001.

Who scores first usually wins...

The team that scores first in an Italian Super Cup final has gone on to lift the trophy on 12 occasions out of 17 (in 70.5% of cases). Only Sampdoria (1988, 1994), AC Milan (1999, 2003) and Inter (2000) have failed to win the cup after taking the lead.

Adriano, Cruz & goals against Juve

Of Adriano's 74 goals since arriving in Italy, 6 have been scored against the Bianconeri: 1 in Juventus-Fiorentina (Serie A 2001/02); 1 in Juventus-Parma (Serie A 2002/03); 2 in Juventus-Inter (Coppa Italia 2003/04), 1 in Inter-Juventus (Coppa Italia 2003/04); and 1 in Inter- Juventus (Serie A 2004/05). Julio Cruz also likes scoring against Juve, with 4 goals against the Bianconeri, Lecce and Parma out of 50 Italian goals.

Del Piero Super Cup top scorer

Alex Del Piero is close to the record of Super Cup wins and is also one of the competition's two top scorers with three goals (1 against Lazio in 1998 and 2 against Parma in 2002). Andriy Shevchenko is the other player with three Super Cup goals to his name.

TURIN - Inter begin their domestic season as they ended the last one by adding to the Coppa Italia with a 1-0 Italian Super Cup victory over Juventus at the Stadio Delle Alpi.

Juan Sebastian Veron's first-time finish from Adriano's cut-back decided an evenly balanced and hard-fought clash in the sixth minute of extra time to give Inter their second Super Cup triumph after Trapattoni's Nerazzurri won the trophy in 1989.
