Going undefeated over 38 matches in a domestic league season is no easy feat. Before this season, it had only happened twice in the history of the Italian Serie A. Perugia went unbeaten in the 16-team league during the 1978-79 season, but lost out on the title to Milan, who completed an unbeaten season during the 1991-92 season, winning the Scudetto.
Juventus became the third team to accomplish the feat during the 2011-12 season, winning 23 matches and drawing 15. They defeated defending champions Milan by four points for the title. It was the club's 30th Serie A championship, but 28th official due to the Calciopoli scandal, which stripped the club of the two titles won under Fabio Capello.
While Milan will come back with a strong team in 2012-13, Juventus will do the same and have little reason to believe they can't be champions again next May.
In fact, I am making the prediction that the two northern giants will combine to dominate Serie A next season and that the title will be decided by a maximum of three points, coming down to a derby result one way or another between the two.
Juventus may have the advantage for many reasons.
