Champions Juventus eased their way through the 100-point barrier, ending the season with a league record 102 thanks to a comfortable 3-0 win over Cagliari on the final day of the Serie A.

Before taking possession of their third straight Scudetto, and the 30th in the club's history, the Bianconeri saw off the Sardinians with yet another stylish performance, emphasising their superiority in Italian football once again this season.

Andrea Pirlo opened the scoring in the eighth minute with Fernando Llorente and Claiudio Marchisio also on target in a one-sided first half.

The Bianconeri then played the clock down as the fans showed their support for coach Antonio Conte, who has raised doubts over his future recently.

Cagliari had the first chance of the game with Victor Ibarbo's shot saved by Gianluigi Buffon, but the hosts soon took charge of the situation.

Pirlo shot just over the crossbar minutes before delivering one of his trademark free-kicks, curling the ball in off the underside of the crossbar.

A Pirlo corner in the 15th minute caused enough confusion inside the Cagliari penalty area for Llorente to take advantage and double Juve's lead from close range, effectively deciding the game against timid opponents.

Buffon denied Daniele Dessena in a one-on-one situation before Marchisio made it three five minutes before half-time from Llorente's pass.

Buffon was given a standing ovation as he left the field early in the second half, being replaced by Rubinho for his first appearance of the season and last for the club, while similar applause was reserved for Llorente and Pirlo, who were replaced by Daniel Pablo Osvaldo and Simone Pepe respectively.

The second half was all about warming up for the post-match celebrations with Juve rarely even trying to add a fourth.

Cagliari had a few chances to grab a consolation, but they did not seem to want to spoil the party either as Juve reached 102 points without breaking a sweat.
