Juventus 3-1 Napoli

Juventus
Juventus have now won 31 Scudettos

Juventus beat Napoli to dent their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League on the day the Italian champions were awarded the Scudetto.

Napoli are three points behind Lazio, who require a point from the derby with Roma on Monday to secure third.

Roberto Pereyra put Juventus ahead before Napoli equalised when David Lopez scored on the rebound after Lorenzo Insigne's penalty was saved.

But Stefano Sturaro's goal and Simone Pepe's penalty sealed the win for Juve.

Should Lazio lose the Rome derby they would need to avoid defeat against Napoli in their final match to secure third.

Juventus, who lifted the Coppa Italia earlier this week, also collected the Scudetto in front of their own supporters in their final home game of the season.

The Turin club wrapped up the Serie A title at the start of the month and could complete a treble should they beat Barcelona at the Champions League final in Berlin on 6 June.

In Serie A's other fixture on Saturday, Genoa beat Inter Milan 3-2 thanks to Juraj Kucka's 89th-minute header.
