Watch highlights

Roma started determined and dominated Juventus in the first quarter of the game. Annamaria Serturini had a great opportunity in the 10th minute, but sent a strike down the middle directly to Pauline Peyraud-Magnin. But Roma got the opener anyway in the 23rd minute, when Andressa Alves converted a penalty after Matilde Lundorf’s foul on Emilie Haavi. Bianconere didn’t pose any threat for Emma Lind’s goal for the most of the game. But the crucial moment of the game happened in the 80th minute, when Agnese Bonfantini ran in a quick counter-attack but brought down by Lucia Di Guglielmo just inside the box. The Italian defender was sent off and Cristiana Girelli equalized from the spot. Still shocked from conceding, Juventus surprised Roma with a quick corner-kick. Lind managed to deflect the first shot, but Sara Gama got the bounce, sent a shot, which took a deflection and flew over Lind to the goal. Giallorosse had a great chance to take the game into extra-time, but Sophie Haug sent a header wide after being forgotten at the edge of the goalkeeper area.

Despite Roma’s dominance throughout most of the match, Juventus managed to win with the only two shots on target and beat the capital team also in the cup. Giallorosse thus finished a season without silverware, after winning their first trophy in the last season of Coppa Italia Femminile.
