Juventus cruised to a 4-1 victory against Bologna at the Stadio Renato Dall’ara in the final game of the Serie A season.

An Alvaro Morata double, goals from Adrien Rabiot and Federico Chiesa were enough to see off Bologna and leapfrog Napoli into the top four.

Juventus took an early lead when Federico Chiesa hit home rounding off a nice move involving Dejan Kulusevski and Adrien Rabiot. The Bianconeri doubled their lead just before the half-hour mark.

Paulo Dybala produced a moment of magic dribbling skillfully in the box beating his man and then scooping the ball over the goalkeeper where Alvaro Morata was on hand to nod home, bringing his into double figures for the season.

Juventus finished the half in control. Adrien Rabiot added the third after Kulusevski threaded a pass beyond the Bologna defence for the oncoming midfielder who slotted home.

The second half started in identical fashion, Juventus continued to take advantage of a Bologna side who played like a side who had nothing to play for with Alvaro Morata scoring in the first couple of minutes to make it 4-0.

The home side grabbed a late consolation goal through Riccardo Orsolini. The former Juventus player hit a first-time shot across goal finding the bottom corner.

The Bianconeri controlled the remainder of the match with ease concluding their season with a solid win to confirm a place in Champions league next season, helped by Napoli throwing away their lead to draw with Hellas Verona.
