Turin-based Juventus is Italy's third-oldest professional soccer franchise. The team contributed five players to Italy's victorious 2006 FIFA World Cup team and is the only Italian club that has contributed players to every Italian national team since the second World Cup. Juventus has been a strong competitor for the past two seasons. In 2013-2014, it won a third consecutive league championship – known as a scudetto -- with a record 102 points. The title was the 30th official league championship in the club's history. The team also reached the semi-finals in 2013–14 UEFA Europa League competition. For 2014–15, Juventus won its 31st – and fourth consecutive -- scudetto, and its 10th Coppa Italia (Italian Cup). The team also defeated Real Madrid in the semi-finals of the 2014–15 UEFA Champions League, later going down in the final to Barcelona.
