Midfielder Arturo Vidal converted a penalty (59th minute) to help the hosts wrap up the title Sunday. The victory lifts Juve 14 points clear of nearest challengers Napoli, who beat Inter Milan 3-1 later but can no longer catch the pacesetters with only three rounds of matches left after this weekend, reports Xinhua.
