“I have always followed Serie A, since I was a child,” Juventus’ head coach Joe Montemurro said after the game at Juventus Training Center at Vinovo. “To be here, in a club that I have always supported, to win the scudetto is a very emotional moment. We’ve worked on the mentality, the girls have shown personality and character, which has brought them here.” 

This marks Montemurro’s first title since replacing Rita Guarino, the coach that led them to four consecutive titles, last summer. The most difficult matches? Those in which we were expected to win. This team has a very high standard, but a scudetto like this is just the starting point,” Montemurro added. They are five points clear of the league table with only a match left to be played. 

The Bianconere has won every Scudetto title since their debut in 2017. No other team in the Italian women’s division has ever won five straight league titles. The Turin giants are just one trophy away from a domestic double as they set to face Roma in the Italian Cup final on May 22, the tournament they previously won in 2019. They will face Milan in the season finale of the women’s top flight.

They reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League this season before being eliminated by seven-time European champion Lyon. Meanwhile, in the men’s division, Juventus looks set to finish fourth in Serie A. They are also set to face Inter Milan in the Italian Cup this week at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome. Defending champion Inter is two points behind Milan in Serie A.
