Juventus won their fifth successive Serie A title on Monday after Roma beat Napoli.

Massimiliano Allegri's players watched in delight as Radja Nainggolan struck an 89th-minute winner, ruling out any slim chance Napoli had of surpassing the Old Lady.

Rather surprisingly, Juventus players trained during the game but Allegri let them watch the final minutes. And at the full-time whistle, the locker-room erupted in delight.

Juventus have now won the Scudetto 34 times and used the hashtag ‘HI5TORY’ to mark their fifth straight title. Allegri has guided his team to 24 wins and one draw in their past 25 games, a miraculous turnaround on Juve’s miserable start to the season.

The champions were 12th place on October 28, 11 points behind the leaders. That’s some turnaround.

In one, you’ll notice Chelsea’s on-loan winger Juan Cuadrado smoking a cigar. Oh how many Chelsea players would wish to swap positions with the Colombian right now.

Star midfielder Paul Pogba can also be spotted in one clip. The France international has increased his reputation with another fine season and Juve will do well to keep him beyond this season.

Coppa Italia final coming up

Allegri would have probably preferred to watch his team win the title by recording an impressive win rather than relying on Napoli to lose, but the way in which Juventus became champions doesn’t detract from their heroic season.

And the job isn’t yet complete - Juve take on AC Milan in the Coppa Italia final on May 21.

The one downer on the season is the manner in which they exited the Champions League. Allegri’s side fluffed their lines against Bayern Munich in the round-of-16 stage, blowing a 4-2 aggregate lead at the halfway point of the second leg to lose 6-4.

Champions League glory is the aim

The former Milan coach is fully aware that Juventus’s owners will be expecting another European run next season, akin to the one the club went on in 2014-15 when they reached the final.

“Next year we must target winning the Champions League," Allegri recently said, per FourFourTwo.

“It's reductive to focus just on Serie A. It's one of those competitions where one incident goes wrong and you don't have time to recover.

“We can improve the players we've got and help them reach maturity, as for example we were naive against Bayern Munich when in control of the situation.

“The club will focus on improving the squad, as it did last summer, bringing in young players with great technique."

Italian football has suffered a decline in recent seasons but Juventus are still holding the torch aloft. If they can keep hold of Pogba, Paulo Dybala and Alvaro Morata, there’s no reason why they can’t reach the latter stages of the Champions League next season.
