Inter Milan won the Italian Super Cup on Saturday for the first time in sixteen years. The match took place at Stadio delle Alpi in Torino, Italy against the Serie A champions Juventus. The cup is the first opportunity to win a trophy in the Italian football season.

Argentinian midfielder Juan Sebastian Veron scored the only goal of the match. He received the assist from Adriano in the sixth minute of the first half of extra time.

Roberto Mancini, coach of Inter Milan, described the match as "tough". Inter now prepare for a preliminary round match of the Champions' League against Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday. Serie A, the top division of Italian football, begins on August 27 with Inter being one of the teams favored to win.
