Last Updated on 23/04/2024 by

Inter won the Italian championship in a stunning and historic manner by defeating bitter rivals AC Milan by a score of 2-1 in a tense Derby della Madonnina. This victory allowed Inter to win their 20th Scudetto with five games remaining at the end of the season.

The stars were set for Simone Inzaghi and his team to have the opportunity to win the championship in the most important game of all, which took place at San Siro Stadium, where Milan was playing as the home team. Inter would have been forced to wait just a few more days to win the Serie A championship if they had been able to hold their opponents from across town to a stalemate. The Rossoneri could only try to prolong the inevitable that was about to happen.

However, Milan was not successful in maintaining the fort. With their victory, Inter demonstrated their superiority, which was evident throughout the entire season. Having won 27 games and only losing one, they were able to secure the championship after 33 games, with five matchdays remaining in the competition.

The early stages of the match demonstrated that those who anticipated a dull draw that could save Milan’s pride and prolong Inter’s apotheosis by only a few days were unsuccessful. Rafael Leao was positioned as the center forward for Milan, while Olivier Giroud was moved to the bench as a result of Stefano Pioli’s decision to reorganize his Milan roster for what was most certainly his final Derby della Madonnina fixture. 

Despite the fact that Milan got off to a great start, the rainy night at San Siro quickly washed away their good intentions. At the 18-minute mark, their defensive problems were once again brought to light as Acerbi was left alone to head the ball past Mike Maignan after it had been taken from a corner kick. Despite the fact that Lautaro had the opportunity to double Inter’s lead quickly, he was unable to hit the target from a point blank range. 

Yann Sommer did an outstanding job of deflecting a header from Calabria, which was the only window of opportunity for the Rossoneri during the first half. In this way, the Swiss goalkeeper demonstrated once more that he is one of the most pleasant surprises that Inter has had throughout their remarkable season. 

Inter struck the final nail in the coffin of the Rossoneri with Thuram, who defeated Tomori and beat Maignan with a crisp conclusion from the edge of the box. This occurred four minutes after the restart of the game. The Frenchman’s clinical execution shocked his fellow countryman, but the near post caught the Frenchman off guard.

After then, Inter made the transition to the cruise control mode just as the festivities at San Siro were getting ready to take place. Nevertheless, the game had a dramatic conclusion as Tomori cut the deficit in half with a header. He did this by tapping the ball in after Sommer had made yet another outstanding save, which had prevented Pulisic from scoring from deep within the penalty area.     

The Rossoneri’s unexpected goal kept the game close until the very end, but their haphazard and desperate onslaught had no fruitful results. Hernandez was shown to be in a fight with Denzel Dumfries, who also received a red card during the match, while Calabria was shown a red card for knocking down replacement Davide Frattesi in the box. Both of these people were sent off for Milan.

After 98 anxious minutes, the referee blew the whistle for full time, which marked the beginning of Inter’s celebrations. Despite the fact that their claim to the Scudetto was never in question, the event could not have transpired in a more favorable manner.
