Juventus put the finishing touches on a ninth straight Scudetto on Sunday, beating Sampdoria, 2-0, to go mathematically out of reach with two matches to go in the season.
Second-place Inter Milan can only get to 82 points, one fewer than Juventus’s current tally of 83. Atalanta, which has significantly outscored Juventus and has a far greater goal differential, and Lazio, the league’s other two 2020-2021 Champions League entrants, can only get to 81.
After a frustrating opening for the hosts, Cristiano Ronaldo broke the deadlock in the seventh minute with his 31st league goal of the season after Miralem Pjanic rolled a free kick to him.
Ronaldo was also involved in the second goal when his shot was blocked by Emil Audero and Federico Bernardeschi snapped up the rebound in the 67th minute.
However, the Portuguese missed a chance to add to his tally when he smashed a penalty against the crossbar in the 89th minute.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
