Juventus defender Andrea Barzagli is convinced they're stronger this season after successfully defending the Scudetto.

The Bianconeri are celebrating their second consecutive Scudetto, which is officially their 29th, but the club and fans consider it to be their 31st.

“From Bologna onwards we met some really strong teams and didn’t lose, so that gave us a real boost,” he told Rai Sport.

“The game we won at the last minute against Catania was a really tough one. Napoli were hungry and really wanted to win, but we were stronger than last season.

“We defenders tend to be out of the spotlight, but that’s fine. The important thing is that the team wins.”
