Juventus beat Lazio 4-0 to win the Italian Supercoppa in front of a hostile all too predictably racist crowd at the Stadio Olimpico. Carlos Tevez scored his first goal for Juventus since his move from Manchester City and he did it in a way that probably made Lazio keeper Federico Marchetti regret waking up in the morning.
With Juve already up 3-0 with two of those goals coming in the previous four minutes, the Serie A champions went on the attack again with a backheel pass setting up a shot that was saved by Marchetti well off his line. The ball then fell to Paul Pogba, who floated a header towards the empty net, but Marchetti scrambled back to make the stop. With Marchetti laying there, the ball trickled back to Pogba, who passed it off to Tevez to finally put it away and make it 4-0 in the 56th minute.
Unfortunately Lazio fans decided to direct their anger at Juve's black players, prompting a late warning from the stadium announcer. From Reuters:
A warning was read over the stadium loudspeakers just before the end of the game, although play was not halted.
After the match, Lazio manager Vladimir Petkovic apologized "to the fans and the city" for the heavy defeat while Juve celebrated in their opponents' home.
