Juventus win Serie A title for ninth consecutive season

Juventus win Serie A title for ninth consecutive season”

The Old Lady passed up the chance to secure the trophy on Thursday as they lost at Udinese, but Maurizio Sarri's side will be confident of getting the job done on home soil this weekend.

Dutch defender Matthijs de Ligt had put the defending champions ahead three minutes before the break in Udine.

Ilija Nestorovski equalised before Seko Fofana scored a dramatic 92nd-minute victor, leaving Juve six points clear with three games remaining.

"We wanted to win at all costs, we were messy and we took the game on a unsafe track and lost it on 93 minutes because we wanted the three points".

It could even be crowned earlier if Atalanta loses at AC Milan on Friday and Inter fails to win at Genoa on Saturday.

The coach added: "In this period we are physically and mentally exhausted".

"For this reason, being aggressive is something more tiring and, therefore, now what matters most is order, because the inertia of a game changes very easily". Today, we played with personality and deserved to win.

A total of 41 points from 35 matches has left them in 14th position in the table, nine points clear of the relegation zone and actually only two points off the top half of the division.

It seemed to be going to plan for Juventus when it took the lead three minutes before halftime.

However, Nestorovski leveled seven minutes after the restart when he headed in Ken Sema's cross.

Immobile scored his 31st goal of the season in Lazio's 2-1 win over Cagliari to take him one above Ronaldo's total.

The Roman club are, however, assured of playing in the Champions League next season.
