ROME (Reuters)  - Inter Milan claimed the 19th Scudetto in club history as the 1-1 draw between Atalanta and Sassuolo gifted the Nerazzurri a first Serie A championship since 2010, and the first major title since winning the Coppa Italia in 2011.
Inter last claimed the Scudetto in the 2009-2010 season, when Jose Mourinho led the Italian giants to a historic treble. AC Milan then topped Serie A the following year, before Juventus established an era of dominance by winning nine consecutive titles.
The Nerazzurri temporarily went 13 points clear on the table after a 2-0 victory over already-relegated Crotone on Saturday. Antonio Conte’s side was expected to end the title drought with four games remaining once Atalanta failed to beat Sassuolo, and the 1-1 draw was enough for Inter to secure the championship.
Atalanta, Juventus, and AC Milan rank second to fourth all with 69 points, while fifth-placed Napoli with 67 points also has Champions League aspirations after a 1-1 draw with Cagliari on Sunday.
In Sunday’s other fixtures, Lazio edged Genoa 4-3, Sampdoria conquered Roma 2-0, and Bologna shared the spoils with Fiorentina 3-3.
