Juventus secures fourth-straight Serie A title with win vs. Sampdoria
MILAN (AP) — Juventus clinched a fourth successive Serie A title with a 1-0 win at Sampdoria on Saturday but put its trophy celebrations on ice with a crucial Champions League match in just three days.
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.
