WHY JUVE’S DOMINANCE IS JUST BEGINNING

Closed

Juventus made history last Sunday as they became the first club to win the scudetto six times in a row.


The Bianconeri clinched the record-breaking title on the penultimate match of the season as then swept aside relegation battling Crotone to wade off any interest title rivals Roma might have had after beating Chievo in an eight-goal thriller that ended 3-5 in Roma’s favour.

The Giallorossi stalled the celebrations and also reopened the title race when they beat Massimiliano Allegri’s men last week as the Old Lady put in a surprising listless performance.

Next stop is June 3rd’s champions League date with Spanish side Real Madrid as they hope to top the domestic cake with a continental cherry – a thing they have been trying to achieve since their domestic dominance started six years ago and has led to two appearances in the Champions League finals but never to the title itself.

Given Real’s season-end beast mode no thanks to talisman Cristiano Ronaldo’s likewise form, the Bianconeri still need a miracle to get their heart desires despite given their talent and all. The fact is simple: Real Madrid and Barcelona are in a league of their own.

Although the muscles of European giants might keep them from lifting a treble, domestic success still remains far from any threat. The pathetic free fall of once capable title contenders, Inter and AC Milan, has ensured a hardly consistent contender from the remaining pack of AS Roma, Lazio and Napoli.

Even when the aforementioned put together a reasonable team to disrupt Juve’s run, the Old Lady have wasted no time to snatch the best players away. Roma lost Pjanic to them while Dybala’s move from Palermo to Turin obviously played a part in getting them relegated.

Every domestic threat will always be dealt with either in kind or cash and that is why they will be unstoppable for a long time.
