After dominating the entire season, Juventus needed just a point to mathematically seal the title with four games to spare, and a first-half header from Arturo Vidal gave it all three.

It was the club's 31st Serie A title, and a first under Massimiliano Allegri, who replaced Antonio Conte in the offseason, just months after being fired by AC Milan.

It was also the first trophy in a possible treble for Juventus, which faces Real Madrid in the Champions League semifinals, and will play Lazio in the Italian Cup final.
