Juventus have finally seen off Napoli's persistent challenge to claim a seventh consecutive Scudetto. Massimiliano Allegri's men got the point required with a goalless stalemate against Roma at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday, just four days after overcoming AC Milan in the Coppa Italia final on the same ground. Elsewhere across the continent, processions have been the order of the day. Juventus, Napoli and a very decent supporting cast have given us something to savour. Here is how it all unfolded. Now, we have become MY7H.
In the league, Napoli set a new club record for points in a single Serie A season, finishing with 91, though this would only be good enough for 2nd place behind champions Juventus, with Dries Mertens was once again the club's top league goalscorer, albeit with ten fewer goals than the previous season; he scored 18 in Serie A and 22 in all competitions. In the Coppa Italia Napoli were eliminated in the quarter-finals by Atalanta. In the Champions League, Napoli had first to navigate through the play-off round, successfully eliminating French club Nice with 20 wins in both legs, 40 on aggregate. However, having been drawn into a group with English club Manchester City , Ukrainian club Shakhtar Donetsk , and Dutch club Feyenoord , Napoli finished a disappointing third, with four defeats and only two victories. As a result Napoli dropped down to the round of 32 of the Europa League, once again experiencing European disappointment as they were eliminated on away goals after drawing 33 across two legs with German club RB Leipzig.

Steve Nicol says Romelu Lukaku's first goal for Inter only adds to his reputation as a flat-track bully, given it came against newly-promoted Lecce.

Craig Burley breaks down how Maurizio Sarri could balance Juventus' attack to give Cristiano Ronaldo more chances at goal.
Both England and Italy have produced teams that have played the most aesthetically pleasing football in Europe this season, but while Manchester City's money and tactical sophistication has guided them to a title, Napoli might not be so lucky. It is a game that will pit style against pragmatism, money against beauty and the north of Italy against the south. When Napoli closed the gap to four points on Wednesday evening after they defeated Udinese , hope was renewed. Maybe, just maybe, the trophy could be heading south for a change but shhh - don't say it out loud! Renowned journalist and novelist Matilde Serao once said: "Superstitions from all over the world come together in Naples where they are then magnified and multiplied. In a city that has long lived for magic, miracles and hope that the struggles will pass and a new day will arrive, it comes as no surprise that they don't wish to discuss the Scudetto. The only problem was that there were no cars on the road to pass him by.
You feel like, even if the game lasted to tomorrow Napoli will never be able to score that goal! Good luck!. Predicting a draw. Let's hope this is the game when Dybala finally gets in form. It should be a great game.

Juventus faced Napoli at San Paolo, with only one result in mind: the Partenopei were four points in front of the Bianconeri, and if they were to win, they would create an even bigger gap at the top of the table. Juventus only needed four minutes to break the ice: "It would soon be recognised that Higuain would become the protagonist of the match, when he tested Pepe Reina after combining with Douglas Costa. In the 13th minute, the decisive episode took place: Douglas Costa recovered the ball, spirnted away and fed the ball through to Dybala , who lead the counter attack. He saw Higuain on the right, and released the ball into the area. And with Pipita in that position, the outcome was already on the cards. Upon reflection, it would be a result that would be decisive for the continuation of the championship.
