beIN calls to move Supercoppa

There are more calls to move the Juventus v Milan Supercoppa clash from Saudi Arabia, but this time by beIN to combat piracy.

The match is due to take place in Jeddah on January 16, but the choice of venue has caused huge controversy for several different reasons.

It was initially pointed out that Italy should shun Saudi Arabia following the murder of dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi, then there were protests that women would only be allowed in to certain sections of the stadium when accompanied by men.

Shevchenko: 'Gattuso man for Milan'

Andriy Shevchenko has urged Milan to stick with Gennaro Gattuso and Gonzalo Higuain. “They can beat Juventus in the Super Cup.”

The current Coach of Ukraine remains a Rossoneri legend thanks to two spells at San Siro, scoring 175 goals in 322 competitive games.

“The club needs to get back into the Champions League, because that is where Milan belong,” he told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Protests grow against Super Cup

Protests continue ahead of the Italian Super Cup between Juventus and Milan in Saudi Arabia, but Barbara Berlusconi insists “football can’t be expected to save the world.”

The decision to play the big match in Jeddah on January 16 only months after the murder of Saudi dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi had already caused controversy.

That stepped up considerably after it was revealed there were men-only sections in the stadium where women would not be allowed.

Opportunity knocks in Juve-Lazio

Juventus have the opportunity for Supercoppa revenge on Lazio, but risk another Simone Inzaghi tactical lesson, writes Daryl Hammond.

Arguably one of the most enthralling matches between two Italian teams came before the season even started. Paulo Dybala’s 91st-minute equaliser was outdone in the drama stakes by Alessandro Murgia’s winner at the 93rd to hand Lazio a deserved Italian Super Cup win over Juventus in August. Fast forward two months and both are still flying high in Serie A, fuelling enthusiasm for another potential barnstormer between the two.

On the weekend of Derby della Madonnina and Derby del Sole, the best viewing may be found in Turin this Saturday.
