With a 1-0 victory over Sampdoria on Saturday, Juventus have officially won their 4th consecutive Scudetto. Juve have become the first club to win 4 Scudetti in a row two different times. Allegri has had a great first season with the Old Lady; they are only one of two teams who are still competing for the treble in Europe, Barcelona being the other. Juventus have dominated Serie A for the last four years but this year under Allegri they’ve finally achieved European success. After defeating Borussia Dortmund and Monaco in the Round of 16 and quarter-finals respectively, Juve now face Real Madrid in the semi-finals with the first leg to be played on Tuesday.
Juve have wrapped up the title, ahead of second-placed Lazio, with four games of the season remaining. In 34 league games, Juventus have a record of 24 victories, seven draws and three losses, scoring 64 goals and conceding just 19. Allegri was the last coach before Conte to win the league, with AC Milan in 2010-2011 and he’s become to first coach ever to win the Scudetto with both Juventus and Milan. Andrea Pirlo has now won the last 5 Scudetti and Gianluigi Buffon has won 8 Scudetti, a record among goalkeepers.
“The players have great human qualities as well as technical ones. To win four consecutive scudetti is extraordinary,” Allegri said after the match. “Now we have to put this crazy evening to one side and think of the cups. I thank everyone who has helped me on this path, from the staff, to the club, to the players.”
“The first day with Allegri and the President in the car, we were greeted at the training ground by spitting, eggs and kicks," general director Beppe Marotta told Sky Sport Italia. “Max imposed his discipline and tactical philosophy, taking the team to the Scudetto, Champions League semi-final and Coppa Italia Final. I don’t think we could’ve expected any more.”
Max Allegri has done a fabulous job this year, as many doubted him when Juventus appointed him. He’s been able to both smoothly rotate formations and rotate the players on the field. He also continued Conte's legacy, but also upgraded Juventus, as he imposed his own philosophy and alternative tactics, which proved decisive in Juve’s Champions League campaign.
Despite the coaching change last summer, Juventus continue their dominance in Serie and look to complete the first treble in club history.
