Inter Milan Earns Second Serie A Title



April 23rd, 2024

Inter Milan celebrated a night for the ages, securing the Serie A title and earning a second star for their jerseys with a thrilling 2-1 victory over archrivals AC Milan in the Derby della Madonnina. This dominant win not only delivers Inter their 20th Scudetto but also breaks the tie with their fierce city rivals, who boast one star for every 10 league titles.

A Night of Rain and Glory

The pouring rain couldn't dampen the jubilant spirits of the Nerazzurri faithful at the San Siro. Goals from Francesco Acerbi and Marcus Thuram sealed the victory, with Fikayo Tomori's late consolation goal for Milan proving merely a consolation prize. Inter's triumph extends their lead to an insurmountable 17 points over second-placed Milan with five rounds remaining in the season.


Celebrating a League Title and Derby Domination

Following the final whistle, a jubilant Lautaro Martínez and teammate Federico Dimarco scaled the goal frame at the San Siro, igniting a celebration that echoed throughout the stadium. Flares, fireworks, and raucous chants from the Inter supporters painted a picture of pure elation. A banner unfurled by the fans took aim at Milan, referencing the Madonnina statue overlooking the city and the namesake derby, declaring in Italian, "Repeat it to the Madonnina, who are the champions and who the crybabies."

Inzaghi's First Scudetto, A Star is Born

This victory marks coach Simone Inzaghi's first Serie A title with Inter Milan, adding another trophy to his impressive collection of eight others. "Winning the league with five matches left – more or less won with nine matches left, today making it mathematically certain – in a derby, with Milan the home team, that is something that will remain with us," Inzaghi said, reflecting on the momentous occasion.

This victory extends Inter's dominance in the Derby della Madonnina, having secured wins in the past five encounters, including both legs of last year's Champions League semifinal and a resounding 5-1 Serie A thrashing of Milan earlier this season.

Clinical Finishing and Defensive Grit Secure the Win

The Nerazzurri took the lead in the 18th minute when a Benjamin Pavard header from a Federico Dimarco corner found an unmarked Acerbi for a close-range finish. Inter could have doubled their lead shortly after, but Lautaro Martínez inexplicably missed from point-blank range. Despite the miss, Inter continued to press forward, with Thuram's clinical finish from a long Alessandro Bastoni ball putting them firmly in control early in the second half.

A Tense Finale and Sending Offs

Milan managed to pull one back ten minutes from time through Tomori, setting up a tense finale. The closing stages saw tempers flare, resulting in sending offs for Theo Hernandez (Milan), Denzel Dumfries (Inter), and Davide Calabria (Milan).


Elsewhere in Serie A, Bologna solidified their hold on fourth place with a 3-1 victory at Roma, inflicting a second league defeat on the capital club under coach Daniele De Rossi. This win extends Bologna's lead over Roma and Atalanta, who both have a game in hand, in the race for Champions League qualification.
