  • Bologna 1 – 2 Juventus

Juventus ended their championship Serie A campaign with a nod to the future as 17-year-old Moise Kean scored a stoppage-time winner in a 2-1 comeback victory over Bologna on Saturday.

A second-half substitute, Kean connected on a difficult header following a free kick from Miralem Pjanic.

It was the first Serie A goal for Kean, who was making just his third appearance in the league. In November, Kean became the first player born in this millennium to appear in Serie A.
Bologna’s Saphir Taider had opened the scoring with a splendid shot from beyond the area following the break, but Paulo Dybala equalised for Juventus in the 70th minute with a rebound following a shot from Gonzalo Higuain.
Juventus had already secured their record sixth-straight Serie A title and rested usual starters Gianluigi Buffon, Leonardo Bonucci and Mario Mandzukic. They will be looking to complete a Treble against Real Madrid in the Champions League final next Saturday.

Juventus moved seven points clear of second-placed Roma, who host Genoa on Sunday in the final match of Francesco Totti’s 25-year career with the Giallorossi.

  • Atalanta 10 Chievo Verona

Atalanta beat Chievo Verona 1-0 to move two points ahead of Lazio into fourth place, which would be a club record. Lazio visit relegation-threatened Crotone on Sunday.

Alejandro “Papu” Gomez, recently called up to the Argentina squad, scored for Atalanta with a shot from the centre of the area after an excellent through ball from Bryan Cristante.
