A.C. Milan clinched their first Italian Serie A title in 11 years, after earning a 3-0 final-day victory at Sassuolo on Sunday, with a double from Olivier Giroud and one goal from Franck Kessie, sealing the Scudetto in style.
Stefano Pioli’s side came into the final round of fixtures knowing a point would be enough for them to finish on top, ahead of rivals Inter Milan, but after Giroud scored in the 17th minute, a 19th Serie A title never looked in doubt.
Frenchman Giroud scored a second goal in the 32nd minute to put Pioli’s men on course for the trophy, without needing to be concerned with how Inter were doing on the back field at the San Siro stadium.
Stefano Pioli’s side finish on an incredible 86 points and become the youngest side ever to win a title in the three points era in Italy as per Opta.
