On Sunday, the matches of the last stage of the Italian Football League were concluded, which resulted in two results that had not occurred for 11 years. Milan won the title for the first time since the 2010-2011 season, and since that season has only won the Italian Super Cup in 2016. Juventus went out without winning any title for the first time since the same season, having dominated Italian football for the past decade.

recover AC Milan Part of his glory after regaining the Italian League title after 11 seasons of winning it for the last time in the 2010-2011 season. Since then, Milan has only been able to win the Italian Super Cup once in 2016 at the expense of Juventus, while the latter came out empty-handed and without winning any title for the first time since 2011.

The other pole of Milan, Inter Milan, failed to retain the title it had won in the previous season, after a fierce competition with its arch-rival.

A trio confer the title to the Rossoneri

The Rossoneri was crowned with its 3-0 victory over Sassuolo on Sunday. Milan’s French Olivier Giroud (17 and 32) and Ivory Coast Kissier (36) scored Milan’s three points, giving Milan the three points with which he finished the season in the lead with 86 points, two points ahead of his rival and his pursuers until the last breath, Inter, who won the same result over his guest Sampdoria with Argentine goals. Joaquin Correa (55, 57) and Croatian Ivan Perisic (49).

Milan achieved a series of remarkable victories in the last few metres, particularly away from home against Fiorentina, Lazio and Verona, before beating Atlanta 2-0 at home in the penultimate 37th stage to celebrate with his fans as if he had won the title.

This title is the nineteenth in the history of the Rossoneri, contributed by a successful combination of the youth element and the old guard, engineered by his coach Stefano Pioli. After winning the title, Pioli said, “The players are really great. I’m happy for them, for me, for the coaching staff, for the officials, for the fans and for everyone in Milan who deserves this title.” “We deserve it for our work and our constant belief in it,” he added.

Milan is one of the greatest clubs in European football, after winning the Champions League seven times, but it suffered both in the last ten years when Juventus dominated the Italian football scene.

The red and black poles of Milan are at a new turning point, with speculation that the Bahraini group Investcorp is close to acquiring the club for one billion euros. With the new owners ready to spend money to bolster a squad that lacked a consistent goal scorer, Milan may rise to continental roles after winning its 19th title in “Serie A”, and restore the glory of the era of its former president, owner and former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, whose era witnessed the greatest successes of the Rossoneri.

Three assists for Yao

Milan began the match with the intention of resolving it early, and the first threat was in the seventh minute from a free kick from the middle of the field, which was met by Giroud with a wonderful header, but Sassuolo goalkeeper Andrea Conselli saved it.

Rafael Liao almost opened the scoring for Milan after a mistake from the defense, when the ball reached Sandro Tonali, who passed it to his Portuguese colleague, who shot it strong towards the goal, but the defense kept it away in the last moments.

After several missed opportunities, most notably by the Belgian Alexis Salemirekers, fate smiled at Milan in the 17th minute, after a fatal error from the Sassuolo defense, reaching the ball to Liao in the middle of the field and heading towards the penalty area and passing a ball on the ruler to Giroud, who hit a ground ball that passed between the defender’s feet And the guard to inhabit the window.

Conseli clung on more than one occasion to repel the successive attacks of Milan, and stood as an impenetrable barrier to Tonali’s attempts.

Liao was present again after a new mistake by defender Jean Marco Ferrari, so he snatched the ball from him and penetrated into the penalty area, and returned the same pass to Giroud to put the French in the net (32).

With his competence to exploit defensive errors, Liao had a “hat-trick” decisive pass, when he made the third goal in the 36th minute, with a pass to Kissier, who shoved the ball into the net with a powerful shot.

With the beginning of the second half, Sassuolo tried to return with the result through the efforts of Domenico Berardi, who hit the crossbar. With Milan’s performance slowing down, Sassuolo failed to threaten French goalkeeper Marc Magnan.

Pioli pushed the veteran Swede Zlatan Ibrahimovic In the 72nd minute, instead of Giroud. Indeed, Ibrahimovic scored a fourth goal for Milan, after Liao scored and passed the ball to the Swede, who put the ball in the net, but the referee canceled it for offending the Portuguese at the beginning of the game (78).

Salernitana ensured that he remained in the second division, despite his resounding fall at home to Udinese with a clean four, because Cagliari was unable to beat Venezia and was satisfied with a goalless draw with him, to fall to the second division. Cagliari subsequently joined the Genoa and Venezia teams.

Disappointing season for Juventus

On the other hand, the Bianconeri season was disappointing, as it failed for the first time since 2011 to win any domestic title.

After his Portuguese star, Cristiano Ronaldo, Juventus seemed this season a ghost of the giant that terrified the top European clubs and dominated Italian football during the past decade.

The old lady’s sons were only able to take the fourth place, qualifying for the preliminary round of the European Champions League.

Juventus lost two final matches this season, both against Inter Milan, as it failed to win the Italian Super Cup on January 12 after losing 2-1 after an extension, and the second week ago on May 11 when the Nerazzurri beat it 4-2 in the final Italian Cup.

The old lady’s team had dominated Italian football for a decade, winning the League title 9 times, the Cup 5 times, the Super Cup five times, and reached the final of the European Champions League twice, losing to Barcelona in 2015 and Real Madrid in 2017.

The Italian giants of the south, Napoli, will accompany the three northern giants to the European Champions League by finishing third. The qualifying positions for the European League came to the two capital teams, as Rome finished fifth and qualified directly to the European League, while Lazio came sixth and qualified for the preliminary rounds of the competition.
