Eleven Years After, Inter Milan Win The Scudetto

End Juventus' Nine Years Reign

Inter Milan have ended Juventus’ nine years dominance of the Italian league by clinching their first Serie A title in eleven years.

On Saturday, Antonio Conte’s side got close to the trophy with a 2-0 win against Crotone.

However, Atalanta’s 1-1 draw at Sassuolo on Sunday have sealed the victory for Inter as they retain an unassailable 13-point cushion with four matches to spare.

The three points, courtesy of Christian Eriksen and Achraf Hakimi’s goals, have brought an end to Juventus’ nine-year reign.

This was kick-started by Conte himself in 2012 and continued by Max Allegri and Maurizio Sarri last term.

Inter only witnessed two defeats this season – two 2-1 losses in the Milan derby in October and at Sampdoria in January.

After snatching the top spot from AC Milan on February 14, Conte’s side have held it ever since.

Inter with a 3-0 triumph over their cross-city rivals in February made them the runaway leaders during the business end of the season.

Hopes to retain the title by the defending champions, Juventus was crushed by a torrid season under Andrea Pirlo, with their spot in next season’s Champions League still hanging in the balance.
