Croatia global Mandzukic, celebrating his 31st birthday, nearly gave Juve a 2-0 lead before Fabio Sampirisi toe-poked the ball away from the big forward as he teed up.

Juventus became the first team to win Serie A six times in a row when they beat Crotone 3-0 on Sunday to clinch the title with one game to spare.

Pjanic fired high and wide when well placed as Juve hunted a third goal that duly arrived with seven minutes to go, Alex Sandro's powerful header hitting the crossbar with goal-line technology confirming the ball had crossed the line.

Dybala doubled the Turin giants' lead with a sumptuous free kick before half-time and Sandro's bullet header in the 83rd minute sealed the win that also secured a record third consecutive league and Cup double.

Roma's stalemate with Atalanta two weeks later was another damaging blow to their chances and allowed the league leaders to open up even more breathing room, which ultimately proved decisive despite them beating Juve 3-1 at the Stadio Olimpico earlier in May.

Juve's win over its relegation-threatened opponent, took it to 88 points from 37 games, four clear of AS Roma which won 5-3 at Chievo on Saturday.
