The 2008 Supercoppa Italiana was a football match that was played by Serie A 2007-08 winners Internazionale and Coppa Italia 2007-08 winners Roma. The match proved to be a tightly contested affair. After exchanging goals, it appeared that Inter was on its way to victory on Mario Balotelli's goal on the 83rd minute, however, Mirko Vučinić tied the game for Roma at the 90th minute. Extra time settled nothing. In the penalty shoot-out, it appeared that a miss by Inter's Dejan Stanković would be decisive, however, Roma captain Francesco Totti missed the team's 5th shot, which would have given his team the cup. In the 7th round, Roma's Juan Silveira dos Santos missed while Inter captain Javier Zanetti scored, ending the match in favour of the Serie A champions.
