The Old Lady secured the Scudetto title with one game left to play, making history by winning seven consecutive Serie A titles and cementing their dominance of Italian Football further.

The win also marks the fourth consecutive Coppa Italia and Scudetto doubles which all started since the arrival of Massimo Allegri back in 2014. Only last week Juventus trashed old rivals AC Milan 4-0 in the Coppa Italia Final to lift the cup.

The season could have been even better if English referee Michael Oliver had not given a late penalty to Real Madrid in the Champions League quarter-final which knocked out the Old Lady from Europe’s elite competition.

Uncertainty now hangs over the head of Juve boss Massimo Allegri who has been made favourite to take over as manager of Premier League side Arsenal.

When asked after the game if he will be staying, the Italian coach replied: “If they don’t fire me. I think I’ll be staying at Juve also next year.

“We’ve done something extraordinary. Four years like this will not be easy to repeat.

“Now I’m going to spend a few days at the seaside because the wind there blows away everything, including some of those I’ve had to hear this year and have made me laugh.

“At Juve, you are always able to get motivated. Certainly, there will be some new players arriving next year and others who will leave. But the motivation to win again is there and you’ve got to set yourself some personal objectives within the group.”

The key now will be for Juventus to try and hold onto star assets such as Paola Dybal and Higuain and add to the squad further.
