Juventus wrap up seventh straight Serie A title

Juventus wrap up seventh straight Serie A title

Just three short weeks later though, Juventus are set to win it tonight, as Napoli have taken just one point from their next two games.

Black Stars midfielder, Kwadwo Asamoah won his sixth straight Scudetto title with Juventus on Sunday thanks to a 0-0 stalemate against Roma.

The home side were reduced to 10 men after 68 minutes when Radja Nainggolan picked up his second yellow card of the game.

They have the best defence in the Serie A season with one game to play, having conceded only 23 goals, while they possess the second-best attack in Italy, having scored 84 goals.

Antonio Conte had won the league title three years on the bounce in between 2011 and 2014, before resigning right at the beginning of the 2014-15 season, citing lack of support from the board to improve their showings in the Champions League.

When Napoli beat Juventus with a last minute victor, the Serie A title race was blown wide open.

"Behind their successes there is a mentality which has been built over the years", Roma coach Eusebio Di Francesco said.

"The greatest merit of the (Juventus) team was that they were always able to keep their calm because in football things can change in a second", Allegri added.

Dybala threatened early and broke through early in the second half after an Alex Sandro cross but the goal was disallowed because the Argentina striker was offside.

"They also have a strong club behind them and manage to remain united even during hard moments".

Lorenzo Insigne had a chance to open the scoring for Napoli in the 12th minute after going through on goal but Sampdoria goalkeeper Vid Belec made a good save.

"Over the last few years Roma have always been a step behind".

However, Sampdoria goalkeeper Belec was finally beaten in the 72nd minute with a left-footed strike from outside the box from Arkadiusz Milik to give Napoli the lead, 0-1.

Despite the impressive result, Crotone slipped into the relegation zone, below Spal on their head-to-head record.

Meanwhile, Atalanta held AC Milan to a 1-1 draw, threatening the latter's hopes of finishing Italian league play in a Europa League position.
