Juventus secured a record 6th back to back Serie A title with a 3-0 win against bottom placed Crotone in the final rounds of Serie A on Sunday.

The 31-year birthday boy Mario Mandzukic gave Juventus the lead in the 12 minutes after scoring from a cross of Juan Cuadrado. Later Argentine Paulo Dybala scored with an accurate free kick just before the break and left-full back Alex Sandro sealed the win after scoring a header in the end.

The win gave Juventus four points lead over Roma and five points over the Naples side with one match remaining which secured their position they’ve held since the fifth week of the tournament. However, in spite of five wins and two draws the last seven games, the relegation-threatened Crotone had to drop down to Serie B after the defeat.

It was Juventus’s 33th Serie A title and a record-breaking consecutive sixth time.

Having wrapped up the league and clinched their third consecutive Coppa Italia over the last few days, Juventus boss urged his side to focus on their Champions League final meeting with Real Madrid which can secure a treble winning season for them.

“First of all, I’ve got to complement the players who have won six straight titles. They’re the ones going down in history,” said Allegri, who won two back to back titles.

However, the Juventus boss remained coy on his next move and did not confirm his future in next season.

“It depends on both of us,” Allegri said when informed that club director Giuseppe Marotta hinted his future is up to the coach. “I’m very happy at Juventus. But now we’ve got to focus on playing, and possibly winning, the (Champions League) final in Cardiff.”

The Juventus boss is rumoured to be the potential candidate to replace Arsene Wenger in Arsenal should the Frenchman leave the club in Summer.
