The Old Lady’s dynasty continues in most impressive fashion.

Juventus has laid claim to its fifth-straight scudetto, an achievement certified officially by Roma’s 1-0 defeat of Napoli on Monday.

Juve stumbled out of the gate, perhaps “hungover” from last season’s run to the UEFA Champions League final.

But — get this — Juve has won 73 of its last 75 points to claim a remarkable 12-point lead on the table.

A 15-match Serie A winning streak was broken by a Feb. 19 draw with Bologna, and Juve promptly started another winning run that currently stands at nine matches with three to play.

It’s the 33rd scudetto for Juventus, and has to be considered amongst the most impressive titles.
