      The final month of the season sees the Bianconeri play four matches with two trophies on the line

      After nine months and 50 matches, the 2017/18 season reaches a crescendo as the calendar turns to May with four games on tap that will decide the champion of the two major trophies in Italian football. 

      Juventus knows that two wins in the last three Serie A matches will ensure the Scudetto stays in Turin for another year while Massimiliano Allegri's side will battle Milan looking for a fourth consecutive Coppa Italia. Here's what's ahead in the final month of the campaign:


      The penultimate home match of the season is set for Saturday, 5 May as Juventus hosts Bologna at 20.45. The Bianconeri easily dispatched with Bologna 0-3 in the road match with three of the better goals of the season scored by Miralem Pjanic, Mario Mandzukic and Blaise Matuidi. 

      Juventus are unbeaten in five Serie A matches against Bologna with four wins and a draw. 


      The Bianconeri will battle for a record 13th Coppa Italia title on Wednesday, 9 May, at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome against AC Milan

      With 17 Coppa Italia titles between the two clubs, this will be another marquee matchup not to be missed. 

      The Bianconeri have beaten Genoa, Torino and Atalanta to reach the final while Milan defeated Hellas Verona, Inter and Lazio to reach their second Coppa Italia final in three years. 


      The Bianconeri stay in the capital to face Roma in week 37 of the Serie A season on 13 May at 20.45.

      A goal from Medhi Benatia secured a vital and thrilling 1-0 win over Roma just two days before Christmas at Allianz Stadium and if Juventus can beat Bologna on matchday 36, they will enter this match knowing a win would secure the Scudetto. 

      Juventus are 1-3-2 in the league against Roma at the Olimpico in the current Scudetto run so they'll be looking to turn around some recent struggles. 


      The 2017/18 season comes to a close at Allianz Stadium on 20 May against Hellas Verona at Allianz Stadium. (*NOTE: Date and time are to be confirmed)

      A Paulo Dybala double secured 1-3 victory for the Bianconeri in the away leg in Verona. 

      Depending on the results from the previous two matchdays, the Scudetto could be on the line for the Bianconeri while Hellas Verona need to win their final three matches to have any hope of remaining in Serie A next season.
