Inter Milan win first Serie A title since 2010

Inter Milan won their first Serie A title after more than a decade when second-placed Atalanta drew 1–1 at Sasuolo on Sunday.

The city of Milan turned into a car horn horn cacophony after Inter was confirmed as the champion of the final whistle, and fans began to gather in the main square immediately in front of the cathedral to celebrate.

It was Inter’s first trophy since 2011 and its first Serie A title since 2010, when it claimed the league, the Champions League and the Italian Cup treble.

Atal needed to avoid winning the title with four matches to avoid an international match and the chances of doing so were dramatically reduced when goalkeeper Pearlighi Golini left the side with 10 men for the match in the 23rd minute Sent in the 23rd minute.

Robin Gossens scored for Atalanta after nine minutes, but Domenico Beardy leveled from the penalty spot early in the second half. A man was also sent to Satsuol, after which Atalan was saved a penalty.

Inter ended Juventus’ hold on the league’s crown. Inter coach Antonio Conte led Juventus to nine consecutive Serie A titles, but finished the run in his second season of the Nerazzurri.

After Inter won 2–0 at Croton on Saturday, Atalanta was the only team that could possibly hold Conte’s side and needed to win to do so.

Atalan dominated the game for a moment of Gahlin’s insanity and looked out of his territory and climbed on top of Sasuolo midfielder Jeremy Boga and gave himself a straight red card.

Despite the numerical loss, Atalan took the lead when Ruslan Malinowski threw a ball upwards and Gossens bounced it off a tight angle before bouncing it into the corner.

Duvan Japata thought he had doubled Atalanta’s lead, but his header was dismissed for a header over teammate Berat Jinetti.

Sasuolo scored seven minutes after the interval when Rafael Toloi was pushed over the Hamade Junior Trière and Beardy hit the resulting penalty in the bottom right corner.

Sasuolo also scored for the offside shortly after, before defender Marlon was shown a second yellow card and a man was sent off with a foul penalty penalty on Luis Muriel.

However, former Atlantea goalkeeper Andrea Kansley saved from Mural’s spot kick.

The result may also reduce the chance of the ineligibility of qualifying for the Champions League. It is level two with AC Milan over points and fourth-placed Napoli, who were drawn 1–1 by Cagliari. Fifth-placed Juventus are three points behind Atlantea and later visit Udini.
