Juve win ninth consecutive Serie A title

The technique and precision from Ronaldo was simply world-class in that move which helped Juve break the deadlock just before half time and take control of the match.

Juventus' crosstown rival Torino won five Italian titles in the mid- to late-1940s.

The Bianconeri extended their record run, which stretches back to 2011-12, thanks to goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Federico Bernardeschi.

Ronaldo then missed the chance to increase his haul as he struck the crossbar with an 89th-minute penalty.

It's Maurizio Sarri's first Scudetto in his coaching career, while he became the oldest coach to win the title aged 61 years and six months.

Sampdoria were reduced to 10 men when Morten Thorsby picked up his second yellow for a foul on Pjanic 13 minutes from the end.

According to rediff.com, Ronaldo wrote on Instagram: "Done!"

He has also matched former Italy World Cup victor Felice Borel, who was the last player to score 31 goals for Juventus in the 1933-34 season, with two games remaining.

"This title is dedicated to all Juventus fans, in particular to those who have suffered and are suffering from the pandemic that has taken us all by surprise by overturning the world".

"A big hug to you all".

Juventus have now won nine titles in a row, while De Ligt adds the Serie A championship to the Eredivisie title he won last season in 2019.

Sarri, in his first year at the club, confessed it was hard work to get the team to adapt to his style of play, especially with so many outstanding individual talents in the squad.

With a ninth successive title, Juve fans and the club's hierarchy have grown used to domestic dominance, meaning Sarri's future this summer could be decided by performances in the Champions League, where Juve must overcome a 1-0 deficit when they host Lyon in their last-16 second leg on August 7.
