Juve breaks 100-point barrier with win over Cagliari

Turin, Italy (SportsNetwork.com) - Juventus capped its record-breaking season in style on Sunday, closing the campaign with a 3-0 home victory over Cagliari to take the club's point total to a Serie A record 102.

An own goal from Cagliari goalkeeper Marco Silvestri after eight minutes handed Juve the lead, while Fernando Llorente doubled the advantage in the 15th minute.

Claudio Marchisio added a third goal five minutes before halftime, and Juve coasted home from there, claiming its 33rd win from 38 league matches this term.

Andrea Pirlo had a big hand in Juve's opener after eight minutes when he curled a free kick off the crossbar that struck Silvestri and deflected into the net.

The Italy international also played a part in the home side's second goal when his corner kick ended up on the foot of Llorente, who scored from close range to double the lead.

Llorente then turned provider five minutes before the break to put the match away when his pass allowed Marchisio to beat Silvestri.

Roma finished the campaign in second place, 17 points back of Juve, after losing 1-0 at Genoa in the final game of the season thanks to an 83rd-minute goal from Ioannis Fetfatzidis.

Parma earned the final Europa League place with a 2-0 win over Livorno as Amauri scored both goals in the second half, while Torino squandered its chance at reaching Europe as the club was held to a 2-2 draw at Fiorentina that saw Torino's Alessio Cerci miss a penalty kick in stoppage time that would have handed his team the win.

AC Milan's season ended with a 2-1 win over Sassuolo as Sulley Muntari and Nigel De Jong scored in the first 27 minutes for the Rossoneri, Inter Milan lost 2-1 at Chievo to a second-half brace from Victor Obinna, Lucas Biglia scored on a penalty kick in stoppage time to hand Lazio a 1-0 win over Bologna and Napoli got two goals apiece from Duvan Zapata and Dries Mertens in a 5-1 thrashing of Hellas Verona.
