Juventus had dominated the match at Orogel Stadium Dino Manuzzi in Cesena, and Eniola Aluko also hit the post early in the second half. Juventus won the Italian league and cup double last season, beating Fiorentina in the final in May.
It also won the Serie A title the previous season, in its debut campaign, but was defeated by Fiorentina in the Super Cup. Women's soccer is growing in Italy and nearly all of the big men's clubs — Juventus, AC Milan, Inter Milan and Roma — have recently developed teams to play in the growing Serie A women's league.
