[Primavera] Juve retain Viareggio title

Juventus 4-2 EmpoliCiro Immobile scored a hat-trick as Juventus' Primavera youth team retained the Viareggio Cup, hammering Empoli 4-2 in the final today.

Juve went ahead after just 19 minutes at the Stadio Torquato Bresciani through an Immobile penalty and the 19-year-old doubled their advantage seven minutes into the second half.

Highly-rated Spanish midfielder Falque Silva Yago made it 3-0 for Luciano Bruni's side on the hour mark before Immobile completed his hat-trick on 65 minutes with his 10th goal of the tournament.

JuventusEmpoli threatened an unlikely late comeback as Antonio Tognarelli and Lorenzo Tonelli pulled goals back in the final 17 minutes, but it was too little too late for the Tuscans.

The success is the Bianconeri's seventh crown in 62 editions of the prestigious international "Coppa Carnevale" tournament and their fifth in eight years.

Immobile, who turns 20 on Saturday, scored a brace in last year's 4-1 victory over Sampdoria and his prolific goalscoring form this year earned him the Golden Boy award for Best Player of the Tournament.
