Maurizio Sarri steered Juventus to the Serie A title in his first season at the club. It meant Juventus‘ ninth consecutive title in the Italian leagues. Looking back at all the title Juventus have claimed, Goal has found out that Sarri’s Juventus are statistically the worst Juve side to have won the title.
Juventus claimed the title last week after a 2-0 over Sampdoria as the club secured the title with two games to spare. It wasn’t Juventus’ dominance that has won them the title, but rather the inconsistent performances of Lazio, Internazionale and Atalanta that helped them win the Scudetto.
At the end of the season Juventus collected 83 points, which is the lowest number they’ve amassed in the last decade. They also conceded more goals than in any other year: 43. And therefore Juventus have recorded the worst goal difference record (+33) along with the highest number of defeats and the smallest gap between the champions and the runners-up Internazionale.
To aid in the statistics Juventus have dropped 21 points this season while leading a match, more than any other club in the Serie A. And to finalise the ‘poor season’ Sarri’s Juventus were beaten in the Italian Super Cup and Coppa Italia. There still is one major trophy for Sarri to win to end his season on a high and that is the Champions League.
