Juve lose Serie A home game for first time since 2018


Juve lose Serie A home game for first time since 2018

Serie A champions Juventus suffered their first home league defeat for over two years when they finished the season by losing 3-1 against AS Roma on Saturday (Aug 1). The Turin side, last beaten on their own ground in a Serie A match by Napoli in April 2018, have lost both their games since clinching the title one week ago and finished the campaign with 83 points, one ahead of Inter Milan.

Champions Juventus suffered a first Serie A home defeat in 40 matches, losing to Roma as they finished only one point clear of Inter Milan.

Juve secured a ninth consecutive title with two games to go, but end the domestic campaign with only two wins in their final eight games.

Gonzalo Higuain gave Maurizio Sarri's side the lead but Nikola Kalinic headed Roma level before Diego Perotti scored twice to give them the win.

Inter beat Atalanta 2-0 to come second.

Antonio Conte's Inter were deserved winners with Danilo D'Ambrosio heading them ahead after 50 seconds, before Ashley Young's excellent curling effort after cutting in from the left wing.

This is the first time Inter have finished second since 2010-11 – and also marks the first time the top two in Serie A were separated by just one point since 2001-02.

Atalanta failed to score for just the third time in Serie A this season, but finished on 98 goals – the highest total by any team in the Italian top flight in 68 years.

Elsewhere, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, 38, became the oldest player to score 10 goals in a Serie A season as AC Milan beat Cagliari 3-0.
