Juventus Clinch Their Eight Straight Seria A Tittle With 5 Games To Spare - Photos/Video

Rumors had it that Juventus playmaker, Cristiano Ronaldo is poised to leave the club after they lost to Ajax earlier this week in Champions League. But after the club won an eighth consecutive Serie A title with victory over Fiorentina today,  he says he will be staying at Juventus "1000%".

Massimiliano Allegri's side, who failed at the first attempt with a 2-1 loss at SPAL last week, fell behind after a Nikola Milenkovic opener. Alex Sandro equalised with a brilliant flicked header in the 37th minute. Victory was sealed after the break when German Pezzella diverted Ronaldo's cross into his own net.

Juve needed just a draw to wrap up the title with five games to spare and celebrations started at the final whistle, with Napoli's clash against Atalanta on Monday now irrelevant to the Scudetto chase. It also marks a first Serie A for Ronaldo, who has contributed 19 goals to the Juve cause in the league so far this season in his maiden campaign since joining from Real Madrid in 2018.

In Ronaldo's words:

"I'm really happy that I have won the Italian title in my first season," said Ronaldo. "Of course, it did not go well in the Champions League, but there is next year." - says Ronaldo.

Juventus' 35th league title means the Portuguese forward, who signed from Real Madrid for £99.2m last summer, has become the first player to win domestic titles in England, Spain and Italy.

Juventus were knocked out of the Champions League by Ajax in midweek and have won every Italian league title since moving to the Allianz Stadium in 2011. Earlier on Saturday, Juventus Women beat Verona to retain their Serie A Women title.

Congratulations to the "Old Ladies".
