Juventus in seventh heaven

16 May 2018

Napoli lost the Serie A title in a hotel watching Juventus, rather than on the pitch, their coach Maurizio Sarri said on Sunday after their rivals clinched a seventh successive scudetto.

The club also seem keen to keep the former AC Milan boss in place, with Juventus general manager Giuseppe Marotta insisting there is a "willingness" for Allegri to stay put.

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.

"I think the greatest strength was keeping calm in all situations", he added. "You need to take it one step at a time without getting overwhelmed by enthusiasm when things are going well and you need to never stop working in the hard moments".

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.

"If you get overwhelmed by enthusiasm, you're going to collapse three days later".

"What Juve have more than anyone else in Italy is the mentality that has been built up over the years", Di Francesco told Sky Sport Italia.

Massimiliano Allegri has finally spoken on reports linking him with a move to England, saying he will remain at Juventus unless the club fires him. "They are an example for other teams to follow".

The results: Verona 0 lost to Udinese 1 (Barŕk 20); Torino 2 (Belotti 68, De Silvestri 87) bt SPAL 1 (Grassi 22); Bologna 1 (Verdi 12-pen) lost to Chievo 2 (Giaccherini 48, Inglese 60); Fiorentina 0 lost to Cagliari 1 (Pavoletti 37).

Federico Fazio and Lorenzo Pellegrini both tried their luck while Aleksandar Kolarov's free-kick hit the side netting.

On the whole, Juventus' draw at AS Roma was rather boring.

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.

Juventus was six points clear a month ago but had its advantage slashed to a point in the space of a week.

Juventus will play their final game in Turin next weekend and Allegri promised a big celebration.

"There are players here who won all seven titles and deserve Saturday's salute in front of their home fans".
