Juventus enter the field on Saturday trying to forget the elimination in the Champions League for Ajax. And to erase (or minimize at least) the hangover of Cristiano Ronaldo and company, nothing better than a special achievement with a record right. If at least a draw against Fiorentina in Turin, the Old Lady guarantees the anticipated title of the Italian Championship and the eighth achievement followed by the competition. An unprecedented achievement in the history of the six major European leagues (check table below).

"Now there's no more reason to talk about the Champions League. We need to think about winning the (Italian) championship, which should be celebrated because it is one of our great goals – said coach Massimiliano Allegri, who most likely will not have a chance to win the ninth title next season. The reason? Hardly will he continue in the club after the end of the current.

You must be asking yourself: is there anyone with more than eight titles in a row in Europe? Yes there is. In championships of lesser expression, of course. And put less expression on that. The record holders in consecutive victories are Lincoln of Gibraltar and Skonto of Latvia with 14 titles each.
Juventus, who is the biggest Italian champion with 34 titles, and Fiorentina will have real-time broadcast of GloboEsporte.com starting at 13h (from Brasília). Game can mark the first title of Cristiano Ronaldo with the shirt of the Old Lady.
Back to the Old Boot. Confirming the Scudetto, Juventus will break their own and Lyon's mark, who won the French Championship seven times in a row between 2002 and 2008. And it is precisely in France that the person who was a stamped figure in the previous seven achievements takes place: the goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, icon of the Old Lady who moved to PSG this season.
And below, to give that tight in the chest of the Juve fan, photos of Buffon in each of the seven previous conquests (captain in six of them).
