Juventus sealed their ninth straight Serie A title as they’ve won 2-0 against Sampdoria on Sunday, and still with two games left for the Serie A season.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 31st goal of the season upon the free kick, plus Federico Bernardeschi sealed the win in the second half.
Ronaldo had also missed a penalty kick in the second half, putting him three goals behind Ciro Immobile for the race claiming the Serie A golden boot with two games remaining on schedule.
With the team’s victory, unfortunately, fellow star attacker Paulo Dybala came off with an injury less than two weeks before Champions League action return.
Juventus have struggled over the line in the title race with the display of winning just one out of their five games before defeating Sampdoria as they finish above Inter Milan, Atalanta and Lazio, who all failed to keep up towards the title race after the restart.
The ninth Serie A title for Juventus is the first of coach Sarri’s career and caps a solid first season back in Italy for the former Napoli coach.
At times Juventus have struggled this season but Ronaldo has been on a mission and they now switch their focus to the UEFA Champions League as they host against Lyon in their Round of 16 second leg on Aug. 7, trailing 1-0 from the first leg in France in February.
Juventus have now won 36 league titles in Italy, a record among Europe’s top five leagues, and their ninth title win in a row aligns them with Celtic and Ludogorets who are currently also on a run of ninth league titles on the spin.
