Juventus clinch seventh consecutive Serie A title after Roma draw

Grant SmithMay 16, 2018

It adds to Wednesday's Coppa Italia success, meaning coach Massimiliano Allegri has won the Italian double in each of his four seasons in charge.

Juventus have wrapped up a seventh consecutive Serie A title, holding off a strong challenge from Napoli to defend the Scudetto again.

"We have to congratulate Napoli, which kept pace with a great Juventus".

"Juventus are not a selling club and they only let their players leave if they ask to go".

"I always thank the players and I am sure that it's easier to achieve objectives with a group of men with these values". "We're focused on the end of the season. You need to work well on a mental level because if you have too many surges and dips of mood, you're not going to win".

Despite the numerical advantage Juventus still barely threatened. Juve's Paulo Dybala had a goal ruled out for offside in a close decision and also had late penalty appeals waved away.

It mattered little as Juventus clinched the title with only a match against already-relegated Hellas Verona to play. Meanwhile, they might be one of Europe's most successful teams, but it's more than 20 years since they were crowned champions of Europe.

Roma boss Eusebio Di Francesco was quoted on the club's Twitter account saying: "We are improving all the time but we can't stop now. They are an example for other teams to follow". Juventus pulled six points clear of Napoli who were held 2-2 by Torino.

It's also worth noting that Napoli heads may drop if Juve look like getting anything from their trip to Rome, which kicks off at the same time. Roma's place in next year's Champions League was confirmed yesterday as Inter were beaten at home by Sassuolo.

"When the next season begins, we all start from zero points and must continue proving we are competitive".
