With nothing to play for, Juve rested star man Cristiano Ronaldo while sharp-shooter Fabio Quagliarella lined up for Samp.
 
In a quiet opening, both sides battled to break down each other with shots from range the order of the day.
 
Baring the few opportunities, Quagliarella attempted an acrobatic volley from the far post 33 minutes in which failed to hit the target.
 
Manning the lacklustre first half, Juve pushed hard for the opener early in the second half with numerous shots at goal from Juan Cuadrado and Paolo Dybala amongst others.
 
Each side made changes after 58 minutes, with Gianluca Caprari replacing Gaston Ramirez for Samp whilst youngster Manolo Portanova came on for Emre Can.
 
With little in the way of attacks, Samp made another change on 70 minutes with Ronaldo Vieira hauled on for Edgar Barreto.
 
The latter closed in on the opener 10 minutes from time with an overhead volley, which sailed wide of the left post.
 
Samp broke through on 85 minutes when Gregoire Defrel crept in from the left side to wrong-foot their opposite number Carlo Pinsoglio.
 
Caprari confirmed victory for the home side with a top-drawer free-kick in time added on, as Juve end their campaign with a defeat.
