As the title and picture suggest, Juventus have won the Serie A title for the 3rd time running. This latest title is officially their 30th, though fans will tell you 32 (Juventus were rebuked two titles won originally in 2005 and 2006 due to their involvement in the Calciopoli referee scandal).
Juventus are due to play tomorrow against Atalanta but due to nearest challengers AS Roma surprisingly being thrashed 4-1 away to Catania, they have now run out games to surpass Juventus's tally of 93.
After being knocked out of the Europa League semi-final against Benfica mid-week, Juventus cannot win any other trophy, although they still have one more mission left: to break the 100 point barrier. No team in Italian history has done this before (Inter Milan were the closest with 99 points in 2007) and it will be a milestone Juventus will want to achieve to cap of this period of dominance.
During this era of dominance, Juventus have also managed to go through the whole 2011-12 season unbeaten (only Perugia and AC Milan have done this) and have rarely been pushed to the edge. Ironically, their unbeaten season was the closest a team has been to defeating them. Milan took it to the penultimate match before they succumbed to Juventus, finishing four points behind on 80 points. Last season, Napoli were 9 points behind Juventus's tally of 87; this season Roma at the very least will finish on 85 points. With Roma likely to improve on that, they would have had enough points to win the league in the past two seasons Juventus have won the title. In fact, in any other year apart from this one, Roma would have won the title. They have only lost 3 times and have conceded the joint least of 23 goals. Unluckily for them, Juventus have tapped into a freakishly long reserve of consistency no one has been able to keep up with.
However, despite their dominance in Italy they have yet to translate that onto the continental scene. Last season they were beaten comprehensively by Bayern Munich 4-0 in the quarters of the Champions League; this season, they were knocked out of the group stages (in unfair circumstances) and then by Benfica in the Europa League semi-finals.
With a team containing Buffon, Pirlo, Vidal, Pogba and Carlos Tevez, Juventus will be hoping next season is the year they turn their domination in Italy, into a threat on the continental scene. Until till, then they will celebrate.
