The Bianconero team took the Serie A title after beating Samp 2-0 at home with goals from Cristiano and Bernardeschi.
Juventus is again the champion of the A series. La Vecchia Signora won its ninth consecutive Scudetto on Sunday after winning in Turin by 2-0 to Sampdoria.
Maurizio Sarri’s team had had to postpone the celebrations last Thursday, when they lost 2-1 to Udinese by surprise. But this Sunday they were finally able to celebrate at home.
The Bianconeros returned to have some doubts with the ball, the same ones that allowed them to only add a victory in the five previous dates (two draws and two defeats). However, Juve managed to unlock the game on a stopped ball before the end of the first half.
What seemed like an occasion for Pjanic to show off his formidable punch ended up being a perfect pass for Cristiano Ronaldo, who spliced it from the right and left the rival goalkeeper with no chances. Thus, the first half ended with smiles, despite the fact that Paulo Dybala had had to leave the field a few minutes before due to muscle discomfort, so he sowed concerns thinking about the Champions League.
The Vecchia Signora was not complicated in the complement, already with Gonzalo Higuaín on the field, supplanting his compatriot. In a counter led by Pipa, Cristiano finished off the goalkeeper’s hands and his rebound was stung so that Federico Bernardeschi pushed her and sentenced the match.
Knowing himself champion, Cristiano set about seeking the double in the final minutes. The goal did not come, not even with his penalty shot that crashed on the crossbar, and the Portuguese was left with 31 goals in the tournament: he has two dates left to try to beat Ciro Immobile, who has 34.
Juventus champion, a title already known in Italy that only needed to be confirmed with the victory this Sunday. Now, those of Sarri (he obtained his first title in command of the team) will change the chip thinking of the Champions, a cup that has been elusive in recent years.
