Juventus clinched a record-extending ninth successive Serie A title as they defeated Sampdoria in Turin.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 31st league goal of the season from Miralem Pjanic’s short free-kick in first-half injury time and Federico Bernardeschi sealed the victory after 67 minutes.

Maurizio Sarri’s side are the only team to win nine consecutive titles in one of Europe’s top five leagues.

It extends their own record, which Bayern Munich had matched in June.

The victory secured Juventus’s 36th top-flight triumph and continued their unbroken run of titles since 2012, although they have rarely looked like suffering the kind of collapse that saw them lose seven matches out of 11 in the new year in 2011.

Maurizio Sarri was spotted covered in soap suds after being drenched in water as Juve’s staff and players congratulated each other on the pitch before continuing the party in the dressing room.

The former Chelsea manager had time for a cigarette along the way, while Ronaldo’s strike partner, Paulo Dybala, bounced around with the rest of the club’s stars despite being in some discomfort due to an injury that forced him off during the first half.
