Inter Milan put an end to the nine-year domination of Juventus in the Italian Football League title, winning their nineteenth title in Serie A on Sunday after runner-up Atalanta drew 1-1 with host Sassuolo.
Milan’s team tasted the taste of the league for the first time since 2010, 4 stages before the end of the league, and it is the first for Inter in all competitions since it crowned the domestic cup title in 2011, alone in the historical second place after Juventus (36) and ahead of its neighbor Milan (18) .
Hundreds of people took to the streets of Milan to celebrate the missing league title 11 years ago.
Inter succeeded in breaking Juventus’ monopoly for the title for nine consecutive seasons, as it was ahead of Atalanta by 13 points, with the advantage of two direct confrontations also between the two teams.
This is the first time a team has won the league title from a foreign company, with the Chinese Suning Group owning Inter since 2016.
Technically, the club regained its prestige under the presence of coach Conte, who participated in part of the former Juventus dominance, and the fifty-first-year-old was crowned for the fourth time in his career as a coach, after raising the title with the old lady between 2012 and 2014.
Since his arrival in the summer of 2019, the lighter-eyed and volcanic character has built a team in his image, when he was a rough midfielder: charismatic, tough and efficacious.
Conte’s first season prepared the foundations for success. He finished runner-up behind crowned Juventus 9 times in a row, and lost the European League final “Europa League” with difficulty.
The second year was steady. After a vacillating start, the team pulled the winning belt starting last December and following the humiliating exit from the group stage of the Champions League. Nerazzurri no longer places much emphasis on the quality of performance, but rather on team cohesion and achieving victories.
Away from the title and Inter’s joy at the long-awaited coronation, the competition for the other three places in the Champions League is raging, as only five points separate Atalanta II and Lazio VI after the latter’s 4-3 victory over Genoa with a postponed match in the capital club’s quiver. .
Atalanta ranks second with 69 points, on goal difference from Juventus, the third, after Cristiano Ronaldo’s double (83 from a penalty kick and 90 from a header) to victory over Udinese 2-1 after he was trailing with an early goal for the landowner, Milan fell to fourth place with 69 points as well. , Compared to 66 points for Napoli V, after stumbling with a goal in stoppage time at home to Cagliari 1-1.
