Paulo Dybala, who subbed-in in the second half, closed the scoresheet with his goal in minute 94 and the game ended 3-0.
This match also marked the last national team game of veteran Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini.
Finalissima, which is the third edition of the CONMEBOL–UEFA Cup of Champions as a revival of the Artemio Franchi Cup, is a football match between the winning nations of the previous South American and European championships.
France and Argentina won the previous two Artemio Franchi Cups in 1985 and 1993, respectively.
