Juventus clinched a seventh straight Serie A title to continue their dominance in Italy despite labouring to a 0-0 draw at 10-man Roma.

Roma played the final 20 minutes a man down after Radja Nainggolan was sent off for a second yellow card after a foul on Argentina striker Paulo Dybala.

Massimiliano Allegri's side also won the Italian Cup in the Stadio Olimpico on Wednesday with a 4-0 win over AC Milan.

Napoli managed a 2-0 win at Sampdoria with goals in the second half from Arkadiusz Milik and Raul Albiol, but now trail Juventus by four points ahead of the final weekend.

"Winning is never easy and the lads approached the game in the right way", he said. "Credit goes to the lads for keeping their cool, taking things one step at a time towards our final objective".

"If you get overwhelmed by enthusiasm, you're going to collapse three days later".


Elsewhere, Inter Milan still have hope of qualifying for the Champions League after Lazio failed to seal their spot in settling for a 2-2 draw at Crotone on Sunday.

"Juventus have a special mentality that has been built up through the years", Di Francesco said. "It is also a solid and united club, even in hard times".

"We lose those finals because we play them, the others decide to go out in the last-16", the Italian said, according to Marca.

Juventus had early chances with Edin Dzeko firing over, a Lorenzo Pellegrini shot flying wide and Aleksandar Kolarov's free-kick hitting the side-netting.

Although a Juventus player since 2014, Pinsoglio was loaned in successive seasons to lower league sides Modena, Livorno and Latina before spending the current season at the Turin side.

"It's not an issue of decisions on the future, it's about planning what the future of Juventus will be because once we've finished celebrating, we have to sit around a table with clear heads".
