Juventus win third consecutive Serie A title

Claudio Villa

Roma's defeat to Catania has handed Juventus their third consecutive scudetto.

Juventus have won their third consecutive Serie A title without even having played their round 36 match. AS Roma's surprise 4-1 defeat to basement club Catania today has left the bianconeri with an unassailable eight-point advantage heading into the final couple of rounds -- a lead they could extend further if they pick something up at home to Atalanta on Monday.

There's no doubt that it's a deserved title for Juventus, who, even despite Roma's rise up the ranks, were always a cut above their competitors. The breakthrough of Paul Pogba, a shrewd summer signing of Carlos Tévez and crucial retention of Arturo Vidal has ensured they've managed to once again achieve an unparalleled level of domestic consistency, losing only twice all season.

If there is a disappointment for coach Antonio Conte, it's that his side once again failed to impress in the Champions League, dispatched by Galatasaray in the group stages. But they made amends by being so imperious at home, and they'll certainly be hot favourites to make it four straight when the action resumes next season.
