Juventus win seventh consecutive Serie A title

14 May 2018

Juventus wrapped up their seventh successive Serie A title, and their fourth league and cup double in a row on Sunday with a pragmatic 0-0 draw away to AS Roma in the style that has become their hallmark under Massimiliano Allegri.

Juventus have been crowned champions of Italy for the 34th time after claiming a point from their trip to Roma on the penultimate weekend of the campaign.

Rivals Napoli, the neutrals' favourites thanks to their more flamboyant approach, won 2-0 at Sampdoria and set a new club points record but it was all in vain as they were left four points behind Juve with one game left.

Radja Nainggolan was dismissed for the hosts after collecting two yellow cards in five second-half minutes.

Sunday's draw was not a result either Crotone or Lazio wanted.

Chievo moved up to 14th, two points clear of the relegation zone, after a 2-1 win at Bologna.

Both sides finished the game with 10 men, with Atalanta's Rafael Toloi sent off after 64 minutes and Milan substitute Riccardo Montolivo following 11 minutes later.

SPAL are still out of the bottom three, but sit level on points with Crotone after losing 2-1 at Torino.

Andrea Masiello beat Gianluigi Donnarumma with a header at the back post to salvage a draw and give Atalanta hope of finishing sixth, which would allow them to avoid playing in the Europa qualification rounds in July.

The result also means Atalanta will guarantee seventh place and the final Europa League qualifying spot provided they get a least a point in their final match in Cagliari next weekend.
