A brace of goals by Mariano Izco ended Roma’s title hopes as Catania stunned Roma with a 4-1 thrashing at the Stadio Angelo Massimino.

Catania not only ended Roma’s hops but handed Juventus a third consecutive Scudetto.

The Old Lady could have clinched the title with a victory over Atalanta on Monday, but Roma’s defeat makes that game inconsequential in the title race, as it is now impossible for Roma to catch Juve.

For Juventus, it is the 30th Scudetto win in club history, more than any other Italian club.
