Paulo Dybala and Higuain all had chances saved by Lazio keeper Strakosha while Ciro Immobile and Savic both spurned chances to equalize for Lazio as they were thwarted by Neto who stood in for Buffon.

With this title in the bag, Juventus treble quest is still on and focus now shifts to the final league game of the season against Crotone.

Congratulations!
