The Turin giants had needed just a point to officially seal their 34th Scudetto title and become the first team to complete the league and Cup double for four consecutive seasons.

Juventus, needing to get at least a point or have Napoli lose at Sampdoria, battled to a goalless draw against 10-man Roma, while Napoli won 2-0 at Sampdoria to try and take the title tussle into the final week.

If Allegri does depart, he will go out on a high, Juve adding the Serie A crown to the Coppa Italia title they won against AC Milan on Wednesday thanks to a 4-0 victory at the same Stadio Olimpico venue where the league title was clinched. "It's been really tough and we have to compliment Napoli, as they kept the pressure on to the end and won at Sampdoria this evening", Allegri said after the game.

"We work hard, but when it's time to celebrate after four extraordinary years, it's right that everyone celebrates".

Juve received a boost when Nainggolan was booked twice in quick succession for fouls on Alex Sandro and Dybala, but Eusebio Di Francesco's side sat back and defended stoically. "Next year, there will be some players leaving, others arriving, and the objective will be to be in the running for every prize in March again".

"We've got to break away from this tendency to get depressed easily and then get over-excited by two wins in a row".

"I think the greatest strength was keeping calm in all situations".

Paulo Dybala had a goal disallowed for the visitors but they rarely threatened Alisson in the hosts' goal.

Juventus will play their final game in Turin next weekend and Allegri promised a big celebration.
