Italia have won the Italian Super Cup for the first time, with Antonio Conte’s side winning 4-2 against Juventus in the semi-finals.
The result will see Turin go top of Serie A, but with Milan set to host Inter Milan in the last 16, the team’s last-16 tie with Inter has been dropped from the competition.
Ancelotti has had a difficult time getting his team playing together, and Conte was replaced by new coach Antonio Conseco after just eight games, with the Nerazzurri winning just four of their 15.
It was a strange move by the Italian boss, as the Nerazulens’ first goal came from a corner that was saved by Luca Gasperini.
Juventus, meanwhile, had a poor game from their opening-day game, conceding two goals in the first half.
The result means the Neras have moved to third in Serie A for the season.
Both teams will now meet in the third-place play-offs, with Juventus aiming for the third title of Conte and Consecco’s reign at the club.
