Juventus beat Atalanta 3-1 in its final league game of the season to record only the third ever unbeaten campaign in Serie A history.
Goals from Luca Marrone, departing club captain Alessandro Del Piero and Andrea Barzagli defeated Stefano Colantuono's side and saw the Bianconeri record their 38th game this term without defeat. They become the first team to complete the season unbeaten in a 20-team Serie A, with Perugia chalking up the first such record in a 30-game campaign in 1978-79 and AC Milan's 1991-92 achievement coming over 34 matches.
Juve has won 23 and drawn 15 of its 38 games this term. Including the club's 2-2 draw against Napoli on the final day of last season, the team is now unbeaten in 39 matches stretching back to a 1-0 defeat at Parma on May 15, 2011.
Antonio Conte is yet to preside over a loss since taking over as Juventus coach last May, with a 2-1 defeat to Milan in the Coppa Italia semifinal second leg the team's only loss over 90 minutes, and even then a 2-2 draw after extra time saw the team progress to next week's final against Napoli in Rome.
The departing Del Piero was given a fantastic ovation when he was substituted in the 57th minute, spending several minutes taking the fans' applause as he made a lap of honor with the game still being played.
