Juventus added another feather in the crown as they beat Sampdoria 2-0 to seal the Serie A title on Sunday night at the Allianz Stadium. With the win, Juventus were crowned Italian champions for the 36th time. The Bianconeri went seven points clear of second-placed Inter Milan with two games still to be played.
As expected Cristiano Ronaldo got things started as he broke the deadlock in the added time of the first half of the encounter, which was also his 31st goal of the season. It was Miralem Pjanic, who rolled a free-kick to Ronaldo, who found the back of the net to put Juventus in the lead. Juventus went into half-time with a 1-0 lead.
The win has set Twitter on fire as fans are praising the dream run of Juventus.
