Inter Milan was proclaimed champion of Italy this Sunday for the nineteenth time in its history, by adding thirteen points of advantage over Atalanta and Milan, who share second place, with four rounds left before the end of Serie A.
The Milanese team, coached by Antonio Conte, won 2-0 on Saturday during their visit to Crotone and received the official status of their victory this Sunday after Atalanta did not go beyond 1-1 at the Sassuolo field.
Inter, who had not won a trophy since the 2011 Italian Cup, ended Juventus’ historic run of nine consecutive league titles.
He celebrated by watching the Atalanta game on television, the only one that still had options to catch up with him and deny him this title.
The Bergamo team were left with ten men after just 23 minutes during their visit to Sassuolo and, despite taking the lead thanks to German Robin Gosens, they received a penalty from Domenico Berardi at the restart.
Gian Piero Gasperini’s men had an unbeatable opportunity to seal the three points, but Colombian Luis Muriel missed a penalty with a quarter of an hour from time.
Despite not being able to succeed, they showed great athletic and mental condition and managed to compete at a high level despite their numerical inferiority.
But the final draw unleashed the euphoria of Inter de Conte, who had not won the league title since 2010, the magical year in which the team of Portuguese José Mourinho conquered the treble.
Hundreds of fans have already gathered in Milan’s Duomo square, wearing masks but with greatly reduced social distancing despite anti-coronavirus rules, to celebrate the title.
