Juventus remain unbeaten.
Alessandro Del Piero, Juventus
Juventus finished their season with a 100% undefeated streak following a 3-1 win against Atalanta at the Juventus Stadium.
After spending nearly his whole career at the club, Alessandro Del Piero was playing his last game for Juventus and he was eager to make an impact when he sliced through a pass to Borriello, but the forward’s effort went over by little in the 8th minute.
But there was little waiting to be done as Luca Marrone- who made his fifth appearance in Serie A- managed to curl in the ball into the back of the net. Excellent strike by the youngster, two minutes later.
After much possession the lead was further extended thanks to their own skipper Del Piero, who capped off his finale in style. The striker did well to curl it into the far bottom left hand corner of the goals in the 28th minute.
Several moments later, Atalanta squandered a chance to pull one back through German Denis, when he missed a sitter from close range.
Andre Pirlo- who was awarded Sportsman of the Year just before kickoff- was receiving endless cheers from the fans but was whistled for offside after an exchange of play in the final 5 minutes of the half.
Del Piero waved goodbye to his fans, eleven minutes into the second period, when he was taken off and replaced by Simone Pepe.
Substitute Fabio Quagliarella took a shot from distance but it went out of play above the crossbar, before Stephan Lichstiener gave Atalanta a chance of a late equalizer when he scored an own goal in the 85th minute.
Juve were awarded a penalty on the 90 when Marco Borriello was brought down in the box and Andrea Barzagli made no error in capitalizing on the opportunity to make it 3-1.
A fantastic end to the Bianconeri’s campaign as they end the season as 2011/2012 Scudetto Champions and the only team to finish the season unbeaten in the top five leagues in Europe.
