Juventus secure seventh Serie A title in a row

Juventus coach Max Allegri hailed his side’s winning mentally as they sealed a seventh straight Serie A on Sunday after a goalless draw against 10-man Roma at the Stadio Olimpico.

 

The Turin giants had needed just a point to officially seal their 34th Scudetto title and become the first team to complete the league and Cup double for four consecutive seasons.

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.

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 2nd placed Napoli who are 4 points behind after winning 2-0 at Sampdoria on Sunday.
