 Juventus's hopes of winning their 26th Scudetto were washed away at the Renato Curi stadium after a nail biting finale. Juventus were limited to long range shots by Perugia, who set out their stall defensively and were difficult to break down. The danger man in the first half of this game was Alessandro Del Piero, who with his slalom runs had exposed Perugia's defence at times and Juventus came close on 20 minutes when Pippo Inzaghi shot wide of Andrea Mazzantini's goal. A free kick on 21 minutes by Del Piero and a shot just wide of the post from Zinedine Zidane on 40 minutes, were the best chances Juve had in a frustrating half. Juventus were occasionally put under pressure, but with 17 clean sheets this season and only 19 goals against, Perugia seemed lost for ideas.
Heavy rain delayed the start of the second half by over an hour, but within 5 minutes a poor defensive clearance by Juve's captain Antonio Conte, saw the ball fall to the feet of Alessandro Calori, who struck it with the outside of the right foot and past Edwin Van der Sar. The condition of the pitch left Juve trying to play the long ball forward, but with a lack of imagination in their play and on set pieces Juve were rapidly running out of time. Carlo Ancelotti brought on Darko Kovacevic and Gianluca Zambrotta, who was subsequently red carded by referee Pierluigi Collina for two bookable offensives, Juan Eduardo Esnaider was the last throw of the dice and the last 12 minutes saw Juve camped in Perugia's half, but they couldn't break Perugia's defence.

With 5 minutes of injury time to play Pippo Inzaghi missed a golden opportunity to draw the game level and give Juve a chance of a play-off game against Lazio, who by beating Reggina in Rome by 3-0 have won the Scudetto for the second time, the first coming in 1974.Having failed to give Lazio a helping hand to land the title last season, Perugia made up for it this time around by 'gifting' the title to the Roman side. Eriksson's men played magnificently and swept aside a Reggina side already assured of another season in the top-flight next year. In the 33rd minute Simone Inzaghi converted a penalty won by Giuseppe Pancaro and Veron doubled the lead four minutes later with another spot-kick. Simeone crowned a tremendous end to the season in the 28th minute of the 2nd half by netting the third and final goal. Favors from Perugia aside, it has to be said that Lazio this season have thoroughly deserved their second title. S. S. Lazio, thanks to the likes of Cragnotti, Sven Goran Eriksson, Mancini and Veron, are the new Italian champions. It therefore goes without saying: well done Lazio!
