Juve battled to a goalless draw against 10-man Roma, while Napoli won 2-0 at Sampdoria.

It is the 34th Scudetto in Juventus' history.

"If they don't kick me out, I'm thinking of staying at Juventus next year as well", the 50-year-old told reporters, quoted by Ansa news agency.

Massimiliano Allegri's men needed to get at least a point or for Napoli to lose at Sampdoria.

The Napoli winger had a subtle dig at I Bianconeri ahead of the Coppa Italia final last week, where Juventus cruised to a 4-0 victory over AC Milan.

The end of the season has seen several twists.

But Juventus did not take advantage of their advantage as they game lost its momentum although Dybala did have penalty appeals. That left many pundits - including Allegri - naming Maurizio Sarri's Napoli as favorite for the title.

"I think the greatest strength was keeping calm in all situations".

The assault was enough to make Mahal unable to compete in the main event for a spot in the Money in the Bank Ladder Match. He was denied by Kurt Angle , so "The Big Dog" took matters into his own hands by fighting Mahal twice backstage.

"You have to work on yourself and find the motivation within yourself too, setting personal targets as well as those for the group".

Despite the numerical advantage Juventus still barely threatened.

Radja Nainggolan was sent off for Roma after collecting two bookings in five second-half minutes but Juve were content with a point.

"Juventus has a special mentality that has been built up over the years, they are a club that manages to stay united and compact in hard times, and that's what the other teams have to do", Di Francesco said.

"It's a club that succeeds in remaining united through difficulties". Meanwhile, they might be one of Europe's most successful teams, but it's more than 20 years since they were crowned champions of Europe.

"When the next season begins, we all start from zero points and must continue proving we are competitive".

Any one of five clubs could be relegated on the final day of the season.
