AC Milan Win Serie A Title For The First Time In 11 Years


(MENAFN- Khaama Press)

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 Milan last won the title, 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.
