Scandal-hit Juve win league title
Juventus celebrate after David Trezeguet scores against Reggina
Juventus and AC Milan are under investigation in a fraud probe
Juventus have won the Italian Serie A title for the second year in a row.

Italy's most successful club beat Reggina 2-0 to claim their 29th championship win, with AC Milan finishing as runners-up again.

Earlier on Sunday AC Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi said his club should be awarded both titles over match-fixing allegations that have hit Juventus.

"We demand they give us back the two league titles that are our due. We're tired of suffering injustice," he said.

Juventus finished three points ahead of AC Milan, who won 2-1 at home to AS Roma.

A 23rd minute goal from French forward David Trezeguet put Juventus on their way and Alessandro Del Piero made sure of the win in injury time.

Fiorentina's 2-0 win over Chievo assured the Florence club of fourth place and a spot in the qualifying round of next season's Champions League along with third-placed Inter Milan.

Juve and Milan will go straight into the group stage of the Champions League - unless the ongoing match-fixing investigations result in a change to the final league table.

If found guilty Juventus could be stripped of their last two titles and demoted to Serie B.

The scandal centres on telephone taps from last season featuring discussions about refereeing appointments between Juventus general manager Luciano Moggi, who quit his position later on Sunday, and football federation officials.

All three relegation spots had already been decided before the final day with Treviso, Lecce and Messina heading into Serie B.

Roma, Lazio and Chievo will be Italy's representatives in the UEFA Cup next season.
