Champion Juventus beats Sampdoria 5-0 ahead of fight for 2nd

Juventus celebrated its fifth straight Serie A title in style with a 5-0 thrashing of 10-man Sampdoria on Saturday.

There was a party atmosphere at the Juventus Stadium as Massimiliano Allegri’s team was presented with the trophy after the match.

Juventus took an early lead when Patrice Evra headed in Paulo Dybala’s free kick in the fifth minute.

It swiftly went from bad to worse for Sampdoria, which had Martin Skriniar sent off in the 12th minute for bringing down Mario Mandzukic. Dybala converted the resulting penalty and doubled his tally shortly before halftime.

Giorgio Chiellini, who was making his first start since April 2, and Leonardo Bonucci capped the win.

Napoli hosts Frosinone and Roma visits AC Milan later in the fight for second spot.
