Milan needed to win against Sassuolo on Sunday, May 22 in order to secure a first Scudetto since 2011, and they raced into a 3-0 lead after 36 minutes.

The club coached by Stafano Pioli coasted to victory to earn their first title in 11 years, rendering Inter’s own 3-0 win, at home to Sampdoria, futile.

During the match, Olivier Giroud scored twice before Franck Kessie put the result beyond doubt before half-time.

Milan end more than a decade of poor performances in Serie A as it has been  11 years since Milan last won the title, due to a lingering financial crisis off the pitch and lack of star players and good coaches.
