Juventus will have to wait another week before securing their eighth consecutive Serie A title after going down 2-1 at SPAL.

The Old Lady were on their way to clinching the title when teenage sensation Moise Kean opened the scoring with an instinctive finish in the 30th minute.

However, the home side’s tremendous spirit eventually converted into goals as Kevin Bonifazi and Sergio Floccari each found the net to overturn the deficit and hand SPAL their first win over Juventus in 62 years.

It was still possible for Juve to win the Scudetto on the weekend, had Napoli failed to beat Chievo Verona, however Carlo Ancelotti’s men comfortably defeated the Flying Donkeys 3-1.

Juventus face Ajax on Wednesday morning (AEDT) in the second leg of their UEFA Champions League quarter-final tie, before clashing with Fiorentina in the league where they will likely be crowned champions in front of their home fans.

The Bianconeri will break a record of most consecutive league titles (8) in Europe’s top five leagues – a record currently held by Olympique Lyon of France.
