No other Italian side has won more than five straight domestic titles, and Juventus' run of seven matches Lyon's from 2002-2008 for the most consecutive all-time in Europe's top five leagues.

Roma mustered nine shots but just two on goal, and that's really all Juventus was looking for.

With one game left to play Juventus can not be caught by second-placed Napoli who are four points behind after winning 2-0 at Sampdoria on Sunday.

It is a fifth title for boss Max Allegri - a reported Arsenal target to replace Arsene Wenger - having won four with Juve and one with AC Milan in 2010.

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri picked out third choice goalkeeper Carlo Pinsoglio as the unlikely hero of their double-winning campaign on Sunday, even though the 28-year-old did not play a single game all season for the Turin side.

Defender Raul Albiol, who scored at Sampdoria as Napoli won 2-0 on Sunday, agreed with his coach's assessment on where the league title was lost.

But the last spot will now come down to a final-day showdown when the Nerazzurri travel to Lazio knowing that a win will allow them to join Juventus, Napoli and Roma in the Champions League.

Paulo Dybala had put the ball in the back of the net at the start of the second half but the Argentina forward was narrowly offside.

December 1 2017 Napoli-Juventus 0-1, Napoli's ex-player Gonzalo Higuain scored.

But that goal could also help doom Crotone to relegation, as they fell into the drop zone below SPAL on the head-to-head tiebreaker with both teams on 35 points. "It is also a solid and united club, even in hard times".

"We played after Juve 14 times in the last 16 rounds and seeing as Juve pretty much always win, that badly damaged us".
