Juventus can shatter records today

Juventus need only a point against SPAL today in order to secure their eighth consecutive Scudetto and set two new all-time Serie A records.

The Bianconeri have a 20-point lead over second-placed Napoli and would’ve already celebrated the title last week, had the Partenopei not drawn with 10-man Genoa.

They visit SPAL at the Stadio Paolo Mazza at 14.00 UK time (13.00 GMT), click here for a match preview.

This is set to become a record-breaking event for several different reasons.

It’ll be the eighth consecutive Serie A title, a new first for the Italian division, but also the longest ever winning streak among Europe’s top five leagues.

This will surpass the seven Ligue 1 trophies on the trot earned by Olympique Lyonnais from 2002 to 2008.

If the Scudetto is mathematically sealed today, it’ll be the first time ever that the tournament has been decided with six rounds to spare.

The current record-holder is Inter with five games to go in 2006-07, the post-Calciopoli season in which Juventus were in Serie B.

It’s still not a European record, because Paris Saint-Germain started the party eight games early in 2015-16, with Bayern Munich having seven left on the fixture list in 2013-14.
