Juventus crowned Serie A champions for seventh straight season
A seventh title in succession was clinched by Juventus on the penultimate weekend of Serie A.
Juventus secured a seventh straight Serie A title with a 0-0 draw against Roma at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday.
The Bianconeri completed an unprecedented fourth successive domestic double, having beaten AC Milan 4-0 in the Coppa Italia final just four days ago, with a drab stalemate in the capital in which Radja Nainggolan was sent off after two yellow cards in quick succession.
Napoli's 1-0 victory at Juve on April 22 put them one point behind the defending champions with four fixtures remaining, but Maurizio Sarri's side lost to Fiorentina and drew with Torino in a pair of fatal blows.
And the Partenopei's challenge for a first Scudetto since Diego Maradona's 1989-90 vintage is over for another season, despite a 2-0 win at Sampdoria.
Juve's domestic dominance began under Antonio Conte, who won the league for three successive seasons before his departure in 2014.
Allegri has now surpassed his predecessor with a fourth championship in a row, with his exploits in Turin leading to him being linked with a switch to Arsenal as a replacement for Arsene Wenger.
