AC Milan win Serie A title for the first time in 11 years as rivals Inter finish 2nd

The Rossoneri raced into a three-goal lead in the first half at Sassuolo, meaning the Nerrazzuri’s second half blitz at Sampdoria was in vain.



AC Milan have won the 2021-22 Serie A title, with arch-rivals Inter finishing second after a dramatic final day.

Milan needed to win at Sassuolo in order to secure a first Scudetto since 2011, and they showed no nerves as they raced into a 3-0 lead after only 36 minutes.

Stafano Pioli’s men coasted to victory to earn their first title for 11 years, rendering Inter’s own 3-0 victory, at home to Sampdoria, ultimately irrelevant.

What could have been a nervous Sunday turned into a walk in the park for Milan, as Olivier Giroud scored twice before Franck Kessie put the result beyond doubt before half time.

Milan were given minimal trouble by Sassuolo as they secured the three points they required, as Inter were left just behind despite a convincing win of their own.

Ivan Perisic opened the scoring just after the interval before a Joaquin Correa double put Inter three up in the space of eight second half minutes, however they have to settle for second

It has been a tough 11 years since hey last won the title for AC Milan, with the club suffering financial crisis off the pitch and a fall from grace on it.

They fell into mid-table, finishing as low as 10th in the 2014-15 season, and were absent from European competition for a number of seasons.
