Thousands of fans were in attendance at the King Saud University Stadium in Riyadh in Saudi Arabia on Sunday to see Cristiano Ronaldo's Italian champions Juventus take on Coppa Italia holders Lazio in the Italian Supercup final.

There were loud cheers as the teams went through their warm ups, with the loudest cheer reserved for Juventus and Portugal forward Ronaldo.

Several supporters held up signs asking for the Juve No 7's shirt, which featured traditional Arabic calligraphy above the player's number along with the rest of the squad.

Juventus' Adidas shirt was designed in collaboration with Saudi-Moroccan calligraphy artist, Shaker Kashgari.

Lazio won the match 3-1 with goals from Luis Alberto, Senad Lulic and an injury-time Danilo Cataldi effort with Paulo Dybala grabbing Juve's consolation in a match where Rodrigo Benancur was sent off late on for the perennial Serie A champions.
