Inter Milan clinched their 20th Serie A title on Monday with a thrilling 2-1 victory over AC Milan, extending their dominance in the league by securing their sixth consecutive derby win and creating an insurmountable lead at the top of the table.

The triumph came with goals from Francesco Acerbi and Marcus Thuram, which propelled Inter to a remarkable 17-point advantage over their closest rivals, Milan. This victory sealed their 20th league crown, a significant achievement with five matches left in the season.

For Simone Inzaghi, this title marked his first league championship as a manager. Amid a cold, wet evening at the San Siro, Inzaghi proudly paraded before a jubilant crowd of 75,000 Inter fans, who erupted in celebration with fireworks as the final whistle echoed through the stadium.

AC Milan mounted a late surge when Fikayo Tomori narrowed the gap to 2-1 with just 10 minutes remaining. Yet, despite a tense finale featuring three red cards, Inter managed to hold on to their lead and commence their title celebrations.

With this triumph, Inter joins Juventus as the only other club to claim 20 Serie A titles. The win was part of a stellar season that saw Inter dominate the competition, achieving the unique feat of securing the title by defeating their city rivals in the Milan derby.

Inzaghi’s squad demonstrated their prowess throughout the campaign, leaving rivals like Stefano Pioli’s Milan struggling to keep pace. As Inter surged ahead, early challengers like Napoli and Juventus faltered, ultimately succumbing to Inter’s relentless winning streak, highlighted by 13 consecutive victories.

While their Champions League aspirations were cut short by Atletico Madrid in March, Inter’s domestic success remains unmatched. Looking ahead, Inzaghi, alongside standout players like Lautaro Martinez and Nicolo Barella, prepares for the future with contract renewals and strategic transfers to bolster the team.

Despite facing financial challenges due to the pandemic, Inter’s shrewd dealings in the transfer market have secured key signings, including Piotr Zielinski and Mehdi Taremi, strengthening their squad for the upcoming season.

The pivotal match against AC Milan showcased Inter’s dominance, exemplified by Acerbi’s early header and Thuram’s sensational solo effort. As tensions rose in the final moments, Tomori’s goal injected drama into the game, followed by a chaotic conclusion with multiple red cards.

Ultimately, Inter’s resilience prevailed, allowing them to revel in their well-deserved victory, surrounded by the exuberant cheers of their loyal supporters.
