Juventus on brink of third Serie A title in a row

Juventus moved to the brink of a third successive Serie A title following a 1-0 win over Bologna on Saturday.

Paul Pogba's 64th-minute strike was enough to see off relegation-threatened Bologna and ensure Juve could claim the Scudetto in their next league game, away to Sassuolo on 28th April.

Conte will have to wait for new Juventus deal

Juventus will not renew the contract of coach Antonio Conte until the end of the Serie A season.

Conte, whose current deal expires in June 2015, is expected to be offered a long-term contract with the Turin giants this summer.

Juventus are delighted with the work done by Conte, he has a contract with us and he is the leader of our group.

We have already spoken regarding this matter and we will discuss this issue at the end of the season.

We will talk once we have achieved something important, the scudetto and eventually the Europa League title.

– Juve club administrator Giuseppe Marotta speaking to Gazzetta dello Sport
