Juventus wins title

Afp
Tuesday, May 08, 2012

ROME - Juventus won the Serie A title for the 28th time following a 2-0 win at Cagliari as nearest rivals AC Milan crashed 4-2 in their city derby against Inter yesterday.

That gave Juve an unassailable four-point lead at the top with just one game left.

Mirko Vucinic and a Michele Canini own goal gave the Old Lady of Turin victory in Trieste, where Cagliari have been playing recent home games.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored a brace for Milan but Inter's Diego Milito eclipsed him with a hat-trick, while Maicon put the icing on the cake late on with a fine long-range strike.

It was Juve's first title since 2003 in the record books due to the fact they were stripped of their 2005 and 2006 crowns for match-fixing.

Earlier, Udinese took charge of the race for a Champions League finish as they beat Genoa 2-0 and closest rivals Napoli fell by the same scoreline at Bologna.

The two sides were level on points coming into the match but this result means Udinese will guarantee third spot if they avoid defeat away to Catania next weekend.

Genoa's defeat means they are still not safe from relegation despite Lecce's 1-0 home defeat against Fiorentina on Saturday.

Genoa need a point from their final game of the season to survive.

Lazio are still in the race for third after a 2-0 win at Atalanta.
