Why Juventus were crowned Champions

The Bianconeri were crowned champions of Serie A this evening after a 2-1 win over Udinese.

Juventus have been champions of the league since the beginning of the season, winning eight consecutive games.

Udinese lost 3-1 at the Vicente Calderón on the opening day of the campaign, and will now be hoping to keep their lead in Serie A intact after losing a crucial game against Genoa.

The Bianconelli took the lead in the 13th minute when Alessandro Del Piero volleyed the ball into the net after a fine cross from Alessandro Paredes.

Pareds headed the ball towards the net, but Juve goalkeeper Roberto De Guzman blocked the effort.

Juve continued to pressure Udinese, but their attempts to close down the Udinese defence failed to produce a clear-cut chance.

Udini then managed to draw a corner kick in front of goal, but Del Pieros headed wide of the target.

A few minutes later, Udinese were denied a penalty after a strong tackle on Paredos by Juventus defender Marco Fassone, but it was not enough to halt the Bianconese’s title charge.

Juvenians next match is against AC Milan, who are also on a five-match winning streak.
