Alessandro Del Piero scored twice to give Juventus FC a 2-1 victory over Parma AC in the Italian Super Cup match played in the Libyan capital Tripoli.
That settles it
Del Piero struck the deciding goal from a Marcelo Zalayeta pass on 73 minutes, after the impressive Marco Di Vaio had equalised his first effort ten minutes earlier.
A head start
League champions Juventus and cup winners Parma had accepted an offer from Al-Saadi Gaddafi, son of the country's leader, to stage the game in Libya. The traditional curtain-raiser to the Italian season took place three weeks before the newly rescheduled Serie A campaign was due to kick-off.
