Ghana midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah wins fifth straight Serie A title with Juventus

Posted May 23, 2017

Juventus keeps on breaking records. "He deserved it in previous years too, having won so many titles and the World Cup".

Juventus became the first team to win the Serie A six times in a row when it beat Crotone 3-0 on Sunday to clinch the title with one game to spare.

Juventus wouldn't be in their current position without long-serving goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, who at 39 years old remains the bedrock, and captain of the Turin giants as they head towards a possible treble, and he heads towards an expected retirement following an eventual Italy campaign at the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation. "Now, we have the dream of the Champions League final, which you don't get to play every year", Allegri said after a 3-0 win over Crotone wrapped up a sixth straight Serie A title.

How did Juventus do it and what makes the club so dominant in Italy?

Leonardo Bonucci (30), Andrea Barzagli (36) and Giorgio Chiellini (32), who have come to be known as the BBC, have again been nearly ever-present as Juventus has conceded just 26 goals all season.

The three points gave Juve an unassailable lead over the Giallorossi and the Partenopei with one match remaining, securing the position they've held since the fifth week of the campaign.

Allegri unveiled a daring 4-2-3-1 formation after that defeat, and the team went on to play some of its best soccer of the season.

The new formation also allowed Juventus to benefit more from the passing ability of Miralem Pjanic as he was fielded alongside Sami Khedira in front of the defence.

Napoli are a further point behind in third, the Champions League playoff spot. Knowing their hopes of recovering to spring a surprise against the Bianconeri were as good as dead, Crotone attempted to strangle the game in midfield, hoping they could at least avoid conceding again.

No surprises to see Chiellini here too - along with Bonucci, the partnership is also shared for the Italian national team.

Juventus's path to a record sixth consecutive "scudetto", and a possible treble of trophies, has been a steady work in progress but the Turin club's recruitment policy, particularly last summer, was key.

Moreover, on the eve of "Roma" beat "Chievo" (5:3) and was behind Juventus.
