Juventus finish with win, Osasuna relegated

The football leagues in Spain and Italy both wrapped up their seasons on Sunday, with some relegation places and spots in European competitions still to be decided.

Juventus made sure to finish their title-winning campaign with a perfect home record, while a railing collapse during Osasuna's game in the Spanish league left more than 60 spectators injured.

Here is a look at the day's games around Europe:

Italy

Already crowned champions, Juventus celebrated their third straight Serie A title with a 3-0 home victory over Cagliari to reach 102 points for the season, a record in the major European leagues.

Antonio Conte's side had already broken the Serie A points record but ensured they moved into triple figures by also becoming the first Italian side to win all its home games.

“It is an incredible and historic feat, which we have achieved all together,” Conte said. “What the players, staff and club have done is something incredible. ... All future comparisons will be made with this squad.”

Andrea Pirlo, Fernando Llorente and Claudio Marchisio scored in a party atmosphere at Juventus Stadium. After the game, Juventus went on an open-bus parade through Turin to celebrate.

Later, Parma beat Livorno 2-0 to take the final Europa League qualifying spot after Torino missed a stoppage-time penalty and drew 2-2 at Fiorentina.

Fiorentina and Inter were already assured of Europa League spots, while Juventus, Roma and Napoli go into the Champions League.
