Inter Milan win Serie A title and end Juventus' nine-year reign as Italian champions Inter Milan clinch Serie A title with four matches to spare as Atalanta's 1-1 draw at Sassuolo on Sunday gave them unassailable 13-point cushion; Antonio Conte puts an end to club's 10-year trophy drought and Juventus' nine-year Scudetto winning cycle, which he started Inter Milan have clinched their first Serie A title in 11 years, ending Juventus' nine-year dominance as Italian champions. Antonio Conte's side put one hand on the trophy with a 2-0 win against Crotone on Saturday, but Atalanta's 1-1 draw at Sassuolo on Sunday ensured the Serie A leaders retained an unassailable 13-point cushion with four matches to spare. The three points, courtesy of Christian Eriksen and Achraf Hakimi goals, already brought an end to Juventus' nine-year winning cycle which was kick-started by Conte himself in 2012 and continued by Max Allegri and Maurizio Sarri last term. Inter have only twice tasted defeat this season - two 2-1 losses in the Milan derby in October and at Sampdoria in January, the latter followed by an ongoing 18-game unbeaten run which saw them collect 14 wins, 11 of them in a row. Conte's side snatched top spot from AC Milan on February 14 and have held it ever since, with a 3-0 triumph over their cross-city rivals in February making them the runaway leaders during the business end of the season. Juventus were expected to compete for the title yet again but endured a torrid season under Andrea Pirlo, with their spot in next season's Champions League still hanging in the balance. Stefano Pioli's AC Milan looked like the closest contenders and were top of the table at Christmas, but they failed to keep up with their spectacular early-season form and have now also slipped into a top four dog-fight.
