Juventus beat Roma 1-0 on Saturday evening to make it 16 wins from 17 rounds and take the Winter Champions crown, though Napoli did keep up with the Bianconeri thanks to victory over SPAL.

Inter fell back after a 1-1 draw at Chievo, and city rivals AC Milan lost at home to Fiorentina. Lazio got back to winning ways, just like Sampdoria, who completed a brilliant comeback against Empoli.
