Juve Seals Seventh Consecutive Serie A Title

Juve squad celebrates the title Juve squad celebrates the title

Juventus sealed a seventh straight Serie A title on Sunday after a goalless draw against ten-man Roma at the Stadio Olimpico.

The Turin giants had needed just a point to officially seal another title and become the first team to complete the league and Cup double for four consecutive seasons, AFP reported.

Roma played the final 20 minutes a man down after Radja Nainggolan was sent off for a second yellow card after a foul on Argentina striker Paulo Dybala.

It is the 34th Scudetto in Juventus’s history. Massimiliano Allegri’s side also won the Italian Cup in the Stadio Olimpico on Wednesday with a 4-0 win over AC Milan.

With one game left to play Juventus cannot be caught by second-placed Napoli which is four points behind after winning 2-0 at Sampdoria on Sunday.

Eusebio Di Francesco’s Roma team had already sealed their Champions League place next season after Inter Milan’s 2-1 loss against Sassuolo.

“Juventus has a special mentality that has been built up over the years, they are a club that manages to stay united and compact in difficult times, and that’s what the other teams have to do,” said Di Francesco. “We must not give up, we have a lot of young players who are new to this level, we also have to improve the group and strengthen where we are a little less strong.”
