Argentina defeat Italy in the maiden edition of the Conmebol-UEFA Cup of Champions Final.

The highly entertaining match ended 3-0 in favour of the Copa America Champions.

Goals from Lautaro Martinez (28′), Angel Di Maria (45+1′) and second half substitute, Paulo Dybala (90+4′), sealed the deal for Argentina.

In all fairness, Italy, Champions of Europe, were massively outplayed, outclassed and out-thought in every department of the game.

The gli Azurris simply had no reply for any of La Albiceleste’s onslaught on the night in what appeared to be a one-sided affair.

The scoreline could even have been more had Azzuri Goalie, Donnarumma, not thwarted the efforts of Messi and company a few times.

PSG’s forward, Lionel Messi was tormentor-in-Chief and a constant menace when going forward.

As the match wore on, the Azzuris became even more frustrated and began lashing out at their opponents.

This resulted in 4 yellow cards to Italy as opposed to 1 for Argentina.

The Conmebol-UEFA Cup is an initiative aimed at fostering the bond between both continents.

The winners of both continent’s Cup play each other in a one-off Final.
