With a dominant 3-0 win over Cagliari on Sunday, Juventus reached 102 points on the season, setting a new Serie A record, per Sky Sports (via FoxSports.com). The dominant performance was especially notable given that Juventus had already clinched their third straight Scudetto two weeks earlier.

Juve won their 30th title in club history back on May 4 when AS Roma lost 4-1 at Catania. Nevertheless, the Bianconeri finished the season on a high note, winning all three games after capturing the title, including a 1-0 victory over Roma at Stadio Olimpico on May 11.

While Juventus had an excellent domestic season, they failed to make it out of the group stage in the UEFA Champions League. Playing in tough Group B, Juventus finished third behind Spanish side Real Madrid and Turkish club Galatasaray.

However, their finish did qualify them for the Europa League, where they ultimately made it to the semifinals before losing to Portuguese club Benfica. Making matters worse, the Europa League final was held at Juventus Stadium in Turin.

On the plus side, manager Antonio Conte, who was rumored to be leaving the club this summer, will return next season with the goal of winning a fourth consecutive title.
