Juventus secured their third straight Italian title as nearest rivals Roma suffered a shock defeat at Catania.

Needing a win to keep their slim hopes alive, Roma fell 2-0 behind through captain Mariano Izco's quickfire double for Serie A's bottom side.

Roma skipper Francesco Totti halved the deficit before half-time, but Gonzalo Bergessio and Pablo Barrientos clinched Catania's win after the break.

Defeat leaves Roma eight points behind Juventus with two matches remaining.

Now Antonio Conte's men will celebrate their Scudetto success with a title-winning party in their home match against Atalanta on Monday.
