Record! Juventus Win Serie A For The Sixth Time

Treble-chasing Juventus clinched a record sixth consecutive Serie A title thanks to victory over lowly Crotone.

Mario Mandzukic, on his 31st birthday, turned home Juan Cuadrado’s cross from close range to give the perennial champions an early lead.

Paulo Dybala curled home a brilliant free-kick and Alex Sandro headed in a third via the crossbar as Juventus won with relative ease.

They could have won the title last week but lost 3-1 to second-placed Roma.

Massimiliano Allegri’s side, who beat Lazio 2-0 in the Italian Cup final on Wednesday, are bidding to become the second Italian team, after Jose Mourinho’s 2010 Inter Milan, to win the treble.

They face Real Madrid in the Champions League final in Cardiff on Saturday, 3 June. They have one game before then – a trip to Bologna on the final day of Serie A next Sunday.
