Juventus close in on Italian milestone
Roma’s loss left Antonio Conte’s Old Lady eight points clear at the top with insurmountable 93 points from 35 games played.
That tally hit the 96 point mark on Monday when the team beat visiting Atalanta 1-0 at the Juventus Stadium thanks to a lone goal from Simon Padoin in the 72nd minute.
With the scudetto well in the bag, the Bianconeri are now out to create history in being the first team in the Serie A to finish the season with 100 plus points.
-We've done amazingly well. We aim to exceed 100 points and get into the history of Italian football, Juve player Giorgio Chiellini told Mediaset Premium
-We must thank Roma who forced us to give more than 100%. This third title is the reward for the years where we did not win anything.
-This group is growing and we want to write new pages in the history of this club, he added
With 96 points, the team is a point within the standing record of 97 set by Inter in the 2007 season.
The team could match Inter’s record, or surpass it in the coming Sunday with a point(s) off Roma then hit, or go above the century mark with added points off Cagliari in their final season game on the 18th.
