Juventus have won the Serie A title for the ninth consecutive season after crucial contributions from Cristiano Ronaldo and Federico Bernardeschi earned a 2-0 win at their home field Allianz Stadium to Sampdoria. Ronaldo started the proceedings by scoring the first goal in the first-half stoppage time in Turin and afterward played a part in Federico Bernardeschi netting the second at 66th minute. However, the Portuguese legend missed the chance of scoring a second goal in a late penalty kick during the second half. But that did not change anything much for Maurizio Sarri’s side as they went seven points clear of second-placed Inter Milan.
Sampdoria had a lot of opportunities to turn the game to their luck and delay the crowning of Juventus. Lorenzo Tonelli and Gaston Ramirez were unable to capitalize on the chances provided, and they were punished by Juventus with Federico’s goal in the second half. Juventus previously had botched the opportunity to wrap up the title on Thursday when they lost the game 2-1 to Udinese. Be that as it may, they committed no error at the Allianz Stadium in spite of being pushed hard by Ranieri’s Sampdoria, one of the most in-structure groups since the arrival of Serie A from the three-month coronavirus lockdown. Serie A has come to an end technically with Juventus still having two games left to play in the league.
As Serie A got its champion, the English Premier League has been on a spree of games to see which clubs secure a Champions and Europa league spot. On the last day of the league, Manchester United and Chelsea secured their Champions League places on Sunday on an emotional last day of the longest Premier League season. Manchester United completed third after a 2-0 win against Leicester City while Chelsea finished in the fourth spot by beating Wolves 2-0 as they scored two goals during the first half. Bournemouth and Watford dropped to relegation positions while Aston Villa got their much-needed draw against West Ham to stay in the premier league for the next season. Nearly a month back Liverpool became the champions of the premier league which made them register the earliest title win in the history of the league with 7 games to spare beating the previous record of 5 games.
