Juve seal seventh straight Serie A

The Turin giant had needed just a point to officially seal their 34th Scudetto title and become the first team to complete the league and Cup double for four consecutive seasons

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri hailed his side's winning mentality as they sealed a seventh straight Serie A title Sunday after a goalless draw against 10-man AS Roma at Stadio Olimpico.

The Turin giant had needed just a point to officially seal their 34th Scudetto title and become the first team to complete the league and Cup double for four consecutive seasons.

Roma played the final 20 minutes a man down after Radja Nainggolan was sent off for a second yellow card after a foul on Argentina striker Paulo Dybala.

Allegri's side also won the Italian Cup at Stadio Olimpico Wednesday with a 4-0 win over AC Milan.

With one game left to play Juve cannot be caught by second-placed Napoli who are four points behind after winning 2-0 at Sampdoria Sunday.

Eusebio di Francesco's Roma, in third, had already sealed their Champions League place next season after Inter Milan's 2-1 loss against Sassuolo.

Juve had early chances with Edin Dzeko firing over, a Lorenzo Pellegrini right footer flying wide and Aleksandar Kolarov's free-kick hitting the side netting.

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.

Nainggolan received two yellow cards in the space of five minutes and from the 68th minute Roma were down to 10 men.

But Juve did not take advantage of their advantage as they game lost its momentum although Dybala did have penalty appeals.

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