I want to congratulate Juventus team, staff, and fans on behalf of my blog Italian Soccer Serie A for winning the 2015 – 2016 Serie A Scudetto with 3 games to spare! Yes, it is official. Mathematically speaking, Juventus reaching 85 points after defeating Fiorentina on Sunday 24 April with a positive goal difference of +49. Fiorentina 1 – 2 Juventus.
Juventus had to wait for the match AS Roma vs Napoli on Monday 25 April to see whether they could be proclaimed as Italy’s Champions, and they did. Here is the situation. Roma defeated Napoli and this is why Juventus keeping a +12 points ahead of Napoli with only 3 more games meaning only 9 more available points to end the season. Roma 1 – 0 Napoli. Up to Week 35, Napoli remaining in the 2nd position with 73 points and a positive goal difference of +42. Say no more, Juventus team, staff, fans immediately gathering in Vinovo to celebrate their Scudetto after knowing that Roma defeated their main contender Napoli.
It’s a historical Scudetto…..
- Juventus created a new club record for the number of consecutive Serie A victories (15).
- Up to Week 35, Juventus goalkeeper Gigi Buffon setting a new Serie A record for (973) minutes without conceding goals. Ten games passed without conceding a goal between January’s win away to Udinese and March’s home victory against Sassuolo, thus forming a Serie A record.
- Juventus winning 73 points gained from a possible 75 since the Derby Della Mole victory against Torino on 31 October 2015 representing the highest points haul from a run of 25 matches.
- Following the 3-0 win over Lazio on 20 April, Juventus established a club record for consecutive clean sheets at home (nine) with another two matches to play still at Juventus Stadium against Carpi on May 1 and Sampdoria on May 15 which is the last game of the season.
