Juventus won their third consecutive Serie A title in 2013-14 in record-breaking fashion. They set a new European standard by ending the season with 102 points out of 38 matches, per 101 Great Goals:

The Bianconeri will enter next year's Champions League looking to improve upon their group-stage exit of the previous campaign. They'll be joined by AS Roma, whose total of 85 points would have been good enough to win the Italian title in almost any other year.

The Bianconeri may have struggled in international play this season, but there was nothing wrong with their domestic form. The 102-point mark is almost as impressive as the club's unbeaten run in manager Antonio Conte's first season leading the club, and it's particularly impressive given the great form rivals Roma were in.

The Giallorossi defeated Juventus in their first encounter of the season and went on a long unbeaten run before falling at the hands of Catania, sparking a three-match losing streak to end the campaign.

Roma and Juventus thoroughly dominated Serie A this season, almost embarrassing the competition. While this was somewhat expected from the champions, who simply have more depth and talent than the rest of the league, Roma's ascension came as a real surprise.

Rudi Garcia was expected to build his new team slowly, working with a young squad lacking top-level experience.

But those youngsters quickly adapted to the pace of Serie A. Aided by the ageless Francesco Totti and great seasons from Daniele De Rossi and Mehdi Benatia, Roma's exciting brand of attacking football overwhelmed any and all teams in their path.

All but the eventual champions, of course, who once again relied on their magnificent midfield to lead them to glory. Claudio Marchisio lost his spot to Paul Pogba, but the results were the same. Arturo Vidal, Andrea Pirlo and Pogba bossed opposing midfielders around.

Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente gave the Bianconeri an extra dimension up front, with the Spanish striker really coming on strong late in the year. His size and scoring ability will give Juventus another weapon in their quest for European glory.

Both Roma and Juventus will enter the Champions League group stages in 2014-15, with the champions likely going into Pot 1 for the draw and the Giallorossi facing a more difficult path towards the final rounds.

Napoli will enter the tournament's final play-off round as one of the non-champions, and thanks to solid showings in previous seasons, the Partenopei should be seeded for the draw.

This means the club should avoid opponents like Arsenal and Bayer Leverkusen, instead playing one of the teams coming up through the earlier qualifying rounds.

Napoli will face a single round of fixtures and will have the safety net of the Europa League in case of a loss, but Rafael Benitez and his squad will have the glory of the Champions League on their minds.

The club finished third in Serie A in the first season following the sale of Edinson Cavani, but his production in the final third was hardly missed, as shared by this fan:

One of Italy's most exciting attacking teams, Napoli struggled to put away some of the bigger sides in the country. If they can learn to control their nerves better, they have the quality to challenge Juventus and Roma for the title next season.

Internazionale will head for the Europa League's play-off round and will be seeded thanks to a strong European coefficient, giving the team a favourable matchup in that round.

The Europa league's play-off round is similar to the Champions League's, a single two-legged fixture that sees the winners advance to the group stages.

Parma leaped over Torino on Serie A's final matchday and will enter the Europa league in the third qualifying round. Victory there would guide Crociati to the play-off round, where, unlike Inter, they would be unseeded and could potentially take on one of the Champions League qualifying round's losers.
