The Italian Serie A 2016/2017 League season will be rounded off this weekend with about 10 matches in various centres, though the league winner has already emerged.
To celebrate these final rounds, Pay TV, StarTimes, is set to bring live actions of these matches starting with the Juventus away clash with Bologna at the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara, Bologna on Saturday while Cagliari hosts Milan on Sunday.
Already, Juventus, having won the Scudeto with 88 points from 37 games, clinched a record sixth straight Serie A title with a 3-0 win over Crotone penultimate Sunday.
Juventus moved four points clear of second-placed Roma, which last Sunday also handed the Bianconeri their first Serie A loss since January.
In the last 10 away league matches Juventus has a record of five wins, three draws and two losses. The Old Lady won 18 points out of possible 30.
The home team is currently in the 15th position of the league, with 41 points, after 11 wins, 8 draws and 18 losses.
In the penultimate match, they won a home game against Pescara 3â€‘1. Bologna may not have much to prove except that playing at home to the sixth consecutive Scudeto champions, they would want to roughen feathers by upsetting Juve.
In the last 10 home league matches, Bologna has a record of four wins, one draw and five losses, so they have won 13 points out of 30 possible.
Since 1929 when the Serie A was founded, no club had previously won more than five straight titles. Torino won five consecutive titles from 1943-49 (including a season that was canceled due to World War II), Inter Milan took five straight from 2006-10 and Juventus claimed a handful from 1931-35.
Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri, who is touted to follow Conte to the English Premier League, has yet to confirm that he’ll remain with Juventus after this weekend games.
