Ghana ace Kwadwo Asamaoh wins second Serie A title as Roma's defeat crowns Juventus
Ghana midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah and his Juventus side have mathematically won this season’s Serie A title after closet challengers Roma suffered a 4-1 defeat at Catania on Sunday.
For Asamoah it will be in second straight title but for the Old Lady this is their third in a row.
The Bianconeri don’t play their Serie A game until Monday night against Atalanta, but that is now irrelevant.
Roma needed a victory in Sicily to keep the race alive, but were humiliated 4-1 by the bottom of the table club.
Antonio Conte’s men had already won the title in 2011-12 and 2012-13, but become the first Juventus team to win three consecutive Scudetti since the1930s.
It also means next weekend’s showdown between Roma and Juventus can be played without the pressure of a result.
This is officially Juve’s 30th Scudetto, so they will be allowed to put a third gold star on their jerseys from now on.
The club considers it to be their 32nd, as two were revoked in the Calciopoliscandal in 2004-05 and 2005-06.
