Viola U19s clinch back-to-back Super Cups

26 January 2023

For the second time in a row and the third time in the club’s history, Fiorentina have won the Primavera Super Cup, having registered a 2-1 victory over Italian champions Inter in Monza on Wednesday.

Nikola Iliev carved out the first chance of the game in the early stages, but Fiorentina swiftly went up the other end and won a free kick just a few yards outside the box that would prove to be pivotal. Lorenzo Amatucci stepped up on 11 minutes to send a perfect shot beyond the wall and into the corner to give Fiorentina the lead.

Tommaso Berti doubled the Viola’s advantage with 25 minutes when he won the ball back in midfield, drove forward, allowed his team-mate Eljon Toci to draw defenders away with a fine run before breaking into the box to steer an accurate shot into the corner beyond the hapless goalkeeper.

Fiorentina took a 2-0 lead in at the break, but had to withstand pressure in the second half as Inter looked to get back into the game. Enoch Owusu did halve the arrears on 75 minutes with an unstoppable right-footed strike from the edge of the box, but it would prove not to be enough for the Nerazzurri.

Filippo Distefano hit the bar for Fiorentina with a shot that could have relieved the pressure in the closing stages with nine minutes left, but the sending-off of Valentin Carboni just one minute before full time put paid to Inter’s hopes of finding a leveller.

The Viola were well organised and closed the tie out to win a fifth trophy in just three years (the Coppa Italia three times and the Super Cup twice) under the stewardship of president Rocco Commisso and the current board including general manager Joe Barone, sporting director Daniele Prade, technical director Nicolas Burdisso and head of the academy Valentino Angeloni.
