Bonucci: 'Sassuolo decisive moment'

Leonardo Bonucci believes the 3-1 victory at Sassuolo was “the moment Juventus really clinched the title.”

The Bianconeri had been 1-0 down to the relegation strugglers, but fought back for a 3-1 win to maintain the eight-point gap from Roma.

“I think that period when we notched up a series of 1-0 wins was the key to winning the Scudetto. However, I maintain Sassuolo was the moment we really clinched the title,” Bonucci told Sky Sport Italia.

“Those who were chasing us had a great campaign, but they came up against a Juventus side that was remarkable.

“We have always said that with the statistics they put together, in any other year Roma would’ve won the Scudetto. Unfortunately for them – fortunately for us! – Juve had a campaign that broke all records.

“When you win, it is the best medicine for any problems, so we want to continue along this path, so we can keep winning in Italy and resume winning in Europe.

“In Europe when you make a mistake, you pay a heavy price. That’s what we did this season and I include myself in that.

“We did well in Serie A to maintain concentration at the highest level at all times, proving in every game that we wanted this at all costs.”
