Alessandro del Piero scored in his last league appearance for Juventus as the newly crowned Serie A champion defeated Atalanta 3-1 on Sunday to become only the second Italian side to win the title by going the whole season unbeaten.

Del Piero signed off in style in front of the home fans as he doubled Juventus' lead in the 28th minute.

It was also emotional at San Siro as AC Milan bid farewell to club stalwarts Alessandro Nesta, Gennaro Gattuso and Filippo Inzaghi as well as Mark van Bommel.

Inzaghi scored to help Milan beat Novara 2-1. However, it was of little importance as Juventus was four points clear heading into the final game of the season and claimed its 28th league title last weekend after beating Cagliari 2-0 while AC Milan lost 4-2 to Inter Milan.
