Kwadwo Asamoah & Juventus to lift Italian league title on Saturday
Juventus will be presented with their Scudetto trophy on Saturday evening but they will first have turn out against Cagliari, which will see Kwadwo Asamoah crowned a Serie A champion for the first time.
The match will be Juventus’ final game at the Juventus Stadium this season, with kick-off at 16h00 GMT.
Antonio Conte’s men were dubbed this season’s Champions with just three games to go when they defeated Palermo last Sunday afternoon and have since gone on to continue with their impressive run in a 1-0 win over Atalanta on Wednesday.
“It was definitely a great goal today, but I preferred the one I scored against Chievo because I struck it better. It’s been fantastic because we’ve won the Scudetto, but also positive from a personal point of view,” he said after netting the match winner against the Bergamaschi.
With an unreachable margin of 11 points over second placed Napoli, and with two games to go, the Bianconeri have little to play for when coming up against Cagliari.
In fact they will be more eager to get their hands on the Scudetto trophy they swung aloft last season when they have it handed over to them after the final whistle on Saturday.
Cagliari’s impressive run since Ivo Pulga’s reign at the club took a bit of a dip on Wednesday evening when they were handed their third loss in five games, following a 1-0 defeat to Parma.
The loss meant they slipped out of the top 10 in the table for the first time since January, and they will be eager to make a return to the winning ways by dampening Juve’s party celebrations.
“I must give my compliments to the team who tried their best. We put out all we had, we tried in every way. The boys have done a great job, saving us well in advance. Tenth place has gone way, but we’re still in the mix until the very end,” noted the coach after the defeat.
