Sixth Straight Serie A For Juventus

Sixth Straight Serie A For Juventus

Juventus lifted their sixth straight Serie A title following today's victory over Crotone.

Goals from Mario Mandzukic (celebrating his 31st birthday), Paulo Dybala and Alex Sandro gave us the three nil win on the day at the Juventus Stadium to ensure we lifted a record sixth league title.

With Serie A now tied up and added to the Italian Cup Final success with our two nil win over Lazio, we now go into the Champions League Final against Real Madrid in Cardiff on June 3 looking to become only the second Italian side to complete the treble.

Inter Milan achieved exactly that under Jose Mourinho back in 2010.

With head coach Massimiliano Allegri telling juventus.com ahead of the game that we simply had to 'wrap up the Scudetto' he'll no doubt be delighted to have seen the Bianconeri achieve just that.

'Winning the Coppa Italia on Wednesday has given us an immense boost ahead of tomorrow`s match. It was an extraordinary achievement because to lift the trophy for three years in a row is something that nobody had ever managed before. The boys have trained brilliantly in the build-up to this game. I`m sure they`ll play well tomorrow and seal the Scudetto in the process. Even if Roma and Napoli win tonight, we won`t be concerned as we know what we have to do: pick up all three points. There`s no two ways about it. Tomorrow we must wrap up the league title once and for all.'

Six straight titles was unprecedented in Italian football, so Juventus have rewritten the history books once again.

Special mentions for Gianluigi Buffon, Andrea Barzagli, Claudio Marchisio, Giorgio Chiellini, Stephan Lichtsteiner and Leonardo Bonucci. The first five started the first ever game at the Juventus Stadium back in September 2011 against Parma, with the latter making more appearances than any other outfield player.

Six men, six straight Scudetto's.
