                === Juve marks title celebration with a draw ===
 Turin, Italy (Sports Network) - Juventus failed to celebrate its 29th Scudetto
 with a victory as it was held to a 1-1 home draw by Cagliari on Saturday.
 The  Old  Lady clinched the  Italian title last  weekend with a narrow victory
 over Pescara, but the club's first match as newly-crowned champions got off to
 a poor start.
 Segundo  Ibarbo opened  the scoring  in  the 12th  minute with  a superb  solo
 effort,  getting  past Claudio  Marchisio and  Andrea Barzagli before drifting
 inside and firing a low shot past Marco Storari.
 Juventus  pushed  for an equalizer, which  eventually came just after the hour
 mark through Mirko Vucinic.
 Marchisio played a cross into the box in the 61st minute that was headed on by
 Arturo  Vidal.  Cagliari goalkeeper Michael  Agazzi failed to catch the flick,
 allowing Vucinic to tap home the loose ball from close range.
 Juventus  climbs to  87 points  on the  season while  Cagliari improves  to 44
 Catania 1, Pescara 0
 Catania,  Italy  - Alejandro Gomez  netted the lone  goal at the Stadio Angelo
 Massimino on Saturday to help Catania claim a 1-0 victory over lowly Pescara.
 After  a scoreless first half, Catania wasted no time in breaking the deadlock
 after the restart as Gomez scored six minutes into the second period.
 Catania  held  on to that goal  to improve to  55 points and climb into eighth
 place  in Italy's top  flight. Pescara remains rooted to the foot of the table
 with 22 points.
