The Viola couldn’t have asked for a better way to round off the season, overcoming Juventus 4-2 at home in front of over 1,000 fans.
The first half was largely a tactical affair until Alexandra Johannsdottir unleashed an unstoppable shot from outside of the box. However Barbara Bonansea and Lineth Beerensteyn netted for the visitors to see Juventus 2-1 up at the break.
The hosts came back out for the second half feeling recharged and motivated, and soon found the equaliser through Michela Catena. Johannsdottir then found another goal shortly after to restore the Viola’s lead, before Veronica Boquete put the game out of sight in the 84th minute.
