Malta women’s international defender Nicole Sciberras played a part in Juventus U-19’s opening win in the U-19’s Serie A play-offs.
The Bianconere travelled to Napoli as they faced the Partenopei in the first leg of the quarter-finals, winning 6-1 thanks to goals from Chiara Beccari twice, Elisa Pfattner twice, Michela Giordano and Nicole Arcangeli.
Former Grifone Gialloverde player Sciberras came on in the second half for Juventus as they are chasing their first ever Serie A title at U-19’s level.
They are the runners-up of the competition after falling 2-1 to Roma in last season’s final.
Juventus will host Napoli in the second leg next Sunday.
On the other side, Kailey Willis was on the losing side as Hellas Verona lost 2-1 against Florentia San Gimignano on home soil.
Nonetheless, it was a memorable afternoon for the Maltese player as she scored Verona’s goal, giving her side a lifeline ahead of next week’s second leg.
The Final Four of the competition is penciled between May 27 and May 29 at the Mapei Football Center of Sassuolo.
