Juventus complete double with seventh straight Serie A title

Juventus clinched a seventh straight Serie A title to continue their dominance in Italy despite labouring to a 0-0 draw at 10-man Roma.

Juve could not capitalise, although they were content with the point as Allegri's side completed the double just days after their 4-0 victory over AC Milan at the Stadio Olimpico.

The Old Lady bagged the point they needed to beat Napoli - who saw off Sampdoria 2-0 on Sunday - to the Scudetto with a game to spare.

Juventus are optimistic of keeping hold of coach Massimiliano Allegri as rumours he will replace Arsene Wenger at Arsenal cool. It's been really tough and we have to compliment Napoli, as they kept the pressure on to the end and won at Sampdoria.

"We work hard, but when it's time to celebrate after four extraordinary years, it's right that everyone celebrates. With a team like this, with these men and these players, it's easier to achieve your targets". That left many pundits - including Allegri - naming Maurizio Sarri's Napoli as favourite for the title. You reach the final objective with one small step at a time.

Despite the numerical advantage Juventus still barely threatened.

On football pitches in Rome and throughout the peninsula, Italian children now say they want to support Argentina, "because (Juventus's Paulo) Dybala is so strong", or Belgium, "where Roma's (Radja) Nainggolan plays". Meanwhile, they might be one of Europe's most successful teams, but it's more than 20 years since they were crowned champions of Europe.

"Juventus have a special mentality that has been built up through the years", Di Francesco said.

Speaking to an Italian radio station, Juventus CEO Giuseppe Marotta indicated the club's desire is to see Allegri remain in Turin long into the future. "Next season, there will be players who will arrive and others who will leave".
