AC Milan have won the 2021-22 Serie A title, beating Sassuolo 3-0 to clinch the crown from arch-rivals Inter Milan who finished second.
Before the blast of the whistle, the Rossoneri needed just a point to clinch the title. However, Olivier Giroud’s brace and Franck Kessie’s goal ensured that AC Milan claimed the Serie A title for the first time in 11 years.
Giroud squeezed the ball home in the 17th minute. The Frenchman scored his second in the 32nd minute after further fine work from Rafael Leao to put Pioli’s men on course for the trophy, without needing to be concerned with how Inter were getting on back at their shared San Siro stadium.
There was no relenting from AC Milan as Kessie found the back of the net four minutes later to effectively put the game, and title race, to bed before halftime.
Stefano Pioli’s side won their sixth match on the bounce to secure a title at the expense of Juventus, who had been so successful in the league over the years.
They put behind their woes for the past 11 years to earn their 19th Serie A crown.
