MILAN, Italy -- Juventus gave its fans celebrating a third successive Serie A title another reason to revel in Turin by beating Atalanta 1-0 on Monday. Juventus clinched its 30th league title the day before when second-place Roma lost 4-1 at Catania. There was little excitement on the pitch at Juventus Stadium until Simone Padoin scored against his former club to break the deadlock and keep Antonio Contes side on course to become the first Serie A club to reach the 100-point barrier. Juventus, which has won all 18 of its home matches, has 96 points, and it visits Roma on Sunday before ending the campaign at home to Cagliari. The only worry for Juventus fans will be coach Antonio Conte hinting at a possible departure at the end of the season. "I will speak with the club and we will make the right assessments," Conte said. "It has been three intense years, I have to thank the lads for what they have done. Even tonight they went out there with the desire to win. That mentality, which I have transmitted to the lads, is my greatest merit. "Its not easy to improve on what we have done these past few years. I have to understand if I have the strength to continue ..." Chances were few and far between before Padoin scored in the 72nd minute. The midfielder, who spent five years at Atalanta, drilled in a low shot off the inside of the left post after Carlos Tevez flicked on Paul Pogbas pass. Tevez should have scored his 20th goal of the season with the last kick of the game but the Argentina striker fired wide of an empty net after being unselfishly set up by Fabio Quagliarella. It mattered little, and the final whistle blew moments later to spark joyful scenes of celebration on the pitch and back in the dressing room. "We have been celebrating for more than 24 hours," Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci said. "But we arrived on the pitch with the right attitude and continued our incredible run. Making Juve history isnt easy and the way weve done it is even harder. Juve hasnt won three successive league titles since the 30s, it was right to celebrate, and were really enjoying the moment." Earlier, Lazio scored a stoppage-time penalty to rescue a 3-3 draw at home to Hellas Verona as the clubs saw their Europa League hopes diminish. The clubs are level on points, a point behind Parma and AC Milan, and two behind Torino, which occupies the last European spot. Substitute Romulo thought he scored the winner for Verona seven minutes from time as he was left unmarked to tap home Emil Hallfredssons cross with Lazio goalkeeper Etrit Berisha stranded. But Lazio was awarded a penalty when Michelangelo Albertazzi clipped Miroslav Kloses heels. Albertazzi was sent off, joining Lazios Senad Lulic, who was shown a straight red card minutes earlier for an awful challenge on Juan Manuel Iturbe. Stefano Mauris penalty was saved by Rafael, but the Lazio captain fired the rebound into an empty net. Verona twice fought back, with equalizers from Marquinho and Iturbe after goals from teenage forward Keita Balde and Lulic saw Lazio go in front twice. Hakeem Olajuwon Jersey

. - Considering where Jeff Gordon was after Richmond, left out of the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship in part due to some late-race shenanigans, he couldnt have been happier on Sunday.TORONTO - This isnt a typical off-season for Cory Greenwood.The six-foot-two, 237-pound linebackers preparation for the 2015 season is well underway but for the first time its with the intention of being a CFL starter.The Toronto Argonauts drafted Greenwood third overall in 2010 out of Concordia. But the 29-year-old Kingston, Ont., native joined the NFLs Kansas City Chiefs as an undrafted free agent, playing three seasons there and spending the 13 campaign on injured reserve with the Detroit Lions before being released Aug. 8, 2014.Greenwood finally joined the Argos on Oct. 28, playing in their final two regular-season games. Hell get the chance in training camp to become a full-time starter after Toronto sent starting Canadian middle linebacker Shea Emry to Saskatchewan for defensive end Ricky Foley on Saturday.Every off-season is kind of like, Get back to the grind, switch your mindset, get out of vacation mode, its time to get back to work, Greenwood said in a telephone interview. But I think this off-season is a little different with what happened on the weekend.I went into the off-season with the mindset its going to be an open competition at linebacker . . . but I feel like a door has been opened for me. Ive really been waiting for this opportunity since I started playing professional football. Im really excited about it.Greenwoods time in Kansas City was spent mostly on special teams but Canadian university footballs top defensive player in 09 logged plenty of reps at linebacker on the Chiefs scout team that he says served him well.I dont know if I got a fair shot in the States because its hard to get playing time when youre backing up Derrick Johnson, hes a Pro Bowl player, Greenwood said. But I learned a lot there as far as technique and I was always playing against our first-line offence using those techniques to shed blocks and make plays.You cant be a pushover in practice because theyll get you out of there pretty quick if you dont want to compete. Youre playing special teams but youre just an injury away from having to play. Theyre still coaching you and bringing you up to speed on everything.Greenwood missed the entire 2013 campaign with Detroit recovering from shoulder surgery.dddddddddddd Being able to practise and play in Toronto defensive co-ordinator Tim Burkes defence for two weeks following such an extended layoff was crucial — physically and psychologically —for Greenwood.It was good to get in there and start throwing my body around a little bit and get back to playing football, he said. After being off the whole year and watching people play, I was just itching to get back in there.As an injured guy, getting back on to the field is all you can think about in the off-season.One reason why Toronto could deal Emry, a native of Richmond, B.C., and two-time Grey Cup champion, was its Canadian depth at linebacker. In addition to Greenwood, the Argos also have James Yurichuk of Brampton, Ont., and Winnipegs Thomas Miles.I know in their minds they think this is also their opportunity, Greenwood said. Its going to be a really competitive camp and thats great because its going to bring out the best in all of us.Toronto GM Jim Barker, who was the clubs head coach when it drafted Greenwood, said the former Concordia star will get the opportunity to earn a starting position.From our standpoint hes a guy whos got quiet leadership skills and his athletic ability is unquestioned, Barker said. The coaches felt last year he picked up the defence well.Hes going to make this opportunity or hes going to break it. Its in his hands.Its an opportunity Greenwood says he has long wished for and is anxious to make good on now that its here.When I went to the U.S., in my head I wanted to prove I was more than just a special-teams player, he said. Even when I was down there, I was thinking I know my time here isnt going to last forever. I mean, the (NFL) stands for Not For Long so I was always prepping in my head that I couldnt wait to go make a little splash in the CFL.I grew up with (Saskatchewan slotback) Rob Bagg and have always watched him as well as Cory Watson (a former Concordia teammate now a receiver with Winnipeg). Ive gone into the off-season like its my job to lose. Everything that sets you up for a good season is what you do in the off-season when people arent watching and thats my mindset.
