Juventus clinched their 28th Serie A title after defeating Cagliari 2-0 on Sunday at Nereo Rocco.
The end of the nine-year drought is a welcome boost to the morale of the players after their two titles of 2005 and 2006 were revoked following match-fixing scandals and the club being relegated to the second tier.
AC Milan were the closest of competitors who could have spoiled the party for the Turin-based club, but their city rivals, Inter, came back from a 2-1 score to finish off AC Milan, 4-2. With AC Milan mathematically out of title contention, Juventus were declared the champions with a match remaining.
Juventus also automatically qualify for the 2012-2013 Champions League season, as they move forward in their long road back from being disgraced by scandal.
It took some time, but Juventus can finally say their back.
