  • Juventus complete double with seventh straight Serie A title

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri on Sunday hailed his side's winning mentality as they sealed a seventh straight Serie A title after a goalless draw against 10-man AS Roma at the Stadio Olimpico in the Italian capital. But on a club level Italy have had a good season, with Roma reaching the semi-finals of the Champions League and Juventus the quarter-finals, with Lazio going as far as the Europa League last eight.

Argentine Higuain's appearance at his former stomping ground, the San Paolo Stadium, was greeted with jeers by the home crowd.

"Higuain is a phenomenon in these situations", said Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri.

Fiorentina remained eighth, three points behind Atalanta and the final Europa League spot.

Higuain was again a key player when his hat-trick helped Juventus thrash Sassuolo to serve notice to Napoli.

"It's not an issue of decisions on the future, it's about planning what the future of Juventus will be, because once we've finished celebrating, we have to sit around a table with clear heads", added Allegri.

Captain Gianluigi Buffon was sent-off for his furious reaction to a last-minute penalty which dumped Juventus out of the competition on aggregate despite a win on the night.

"7th scudetto in a row!"

Second-placed Napoli won at Sampdoria, but a point was enough to give Juventus their 34th top-flight title. The only regret I have this season is that we lost the Scudetto in the hotel and not on the pitch. "Moments like that can define a season".

The draw means Juventus have 92 points, while Napoli have 88 points, with one game left to play in the season.

Paulo Dybala threatened early and broke through early in the second half after an Alex Sandro cross but the goal was disallowed because the Argentina striker was offside.
