- With a sixth straight Serie A title wrapped up last week, Juventus concluded their league campaign with a dramatic comeback win. Emil Audero, making his Serie A debut in goal as Gianluigi Buffon was rested, had no chance of stopping Saphir Taïder's stunning effort and there was also a blow when Claudio Marchisio went off, having ice applied to his knee. But Juve pushed hard for an equaliser and Paulo Dybala got it on the rebound after a Gonzalo Higuaín effort was saved. Moise Kean replaced Dybala and then sealed victory with a diving header deep in added time, becoming the first 2000-born player to score in Serie A.
