Inter win Serie A
  • Inter Milan have officially won the Serie A title for the first time in over a decade
  • Conte’s side beat Crotone on Saturday to take them a step closer to the trophy
  • However, it was Atalanta’s 1-1 draw with Sassuolo on Sunday that saw them

Inter Milan crowned Serie A Champions for the first time in 11 years.

Antonio Conte’s side clinched their first Serie A title in 11 years on Sunday after Sassuolo drew 1-1 with second-placed Atalanta.

Inter are 13 points clear in first place with four games remaining, and their triumph ends a run of nine consecutive title wins for Juventus.

This year’s league success marks their 19th Serie A crown and is their first since winning the Serie A, Coppa Italia and Champions League Treble in 2009-2010 under Jose Mourinho.

Conte’s beat Crotone on Saturday to allow them to grasp the trophy with one hand.

It was Christian Eriksen and Achraf Hakimi’s second-half goals against Crotone that saw them close in on the title.

However, it was Atalanta’s draw that ensured it was mathematically impossible for any of the chasing pack to catch them.

Inter have therefore overtaken AC Milan, who have 18 Serie A titles, to become the second-most successful club in league history behind Juventus, with 36 league wins.
