Juventus crowned Serie A champion

Antonio Conte's side has secured a third straight domestic championship after Roma's defeat to Catania.
Juventus is the champion of Italy once again after Roma's defeat to Catania on Sunday secured a third straight Scudetto.

Rudi Garcia's men lost 4-1 to the bottom-of-the-table Sicilian outfit, leaving Juve with an unassailable eight-point lead with only two matches remaining for the Giallorossi. Mariano Isco scored twice in the first half, with Gonzalo Bergessio and Pablo Barrientos finishing off the rout for the Elefanti as the capital side meekly handed Juve a 30th official Italian league title.

The championship success marks the second time in the club's history that it has strung together consecutive domestic crowns in three or more campaigns.

Despite Roma's 10-match winning run to begin the season, Juve has led the way for much of the season, losing only two games — at Fiorentina and Napoli — in league play.

Having tallied 93 points in its 35 games so far, the club remains confident of breaking the Italian record of 97 points, set by Inter in 2006-07. It has, though, suffered the recent setback of elimination from the Europa League, losing 2-1 on aggregate to Benfica in the semifinal.

But now Juventus is celebrating an Italian league title win for the 32nd time, although two of the championships were officially stripped from the club in the wake of the 2006 Calciopoli scandal.
