Juve are Italian champions for the… 36th time! The decline in power observed since the resumption of the Italian championship last month has not harmed the Old Lady. Winners Sunday against Sampdoria Genoa (2-0), Juventus Turin of Cristiano Ronaldo landed a new “scudetto” two days before the end of the Italian championship. With seven points ahead of Inter Milan, the Turinese can no longer be ahead of the standings.
The Piedmontese club are continuing their incredible streak with a ninth consecutive championship won, the 36th in its history. It is the first won under the orders of Maurizio Sarri, Juventus Turin having previously been crowned under the orders of Antonio Conte (2012-2014) then of Massimiliano Allegri (five titles).
First “scudetto” for Rabiot
The victory won by Juventus on Sunday still a lot to Cristiano Ronaldo, author of a new maddening season in the radius of statistics (31 goals). The Portuguese, in added time of the first period, opened the scoring by taking a free kick struck by Miralem Pjanic.
The Turinese then hit the nail on the head in the 67th minute thanks to Bernardeschi on a counter initiated by a recovery from Matuidi, holder in midfield just like Adrien Rabiot. If this is the third Italian championship won for Matuidi, it is the first transalpine coronation for the second.
Before leaving in search of a tenth consecutive title next season, Juventus Turin can now turn to the Champions League, its great goal for several years. The Bianconeri were beaten 1-0 by Lyon in the round of 16 first leg.
