It had been coming for quite a while, but Simone Inzaghi‘s Inter finally got over the line to mathematically confirm themselves as Serie A champions with a Matchday 33 Derby della Madonnina win over city rivals AC Milan. The Nerazzurri ran out 2-1 winners against Milan, with Francesco Acerbi and Marcus Thuram scoring before Fikayo Tomori scored a late consolation for the Rossoneri.

Losing just one of their first 33 games of the Serie A season, which astonishingly came at home to Sassuolo back in September on Matchday 6, Inter stormed to this title after shaking off a short-lived challenge from Juventus. The Nerazzurri’s 1-0 win at home to the Bianconeri in February in Matchday 23’s Derby d’Italia saw them pull clear at the top, and subsequently started a run of form from the Old Lady that saw them fall well away from the race.

A significant 20th Scudetto for Inter

The 2023/24 Scudetto is a significant one for Inter, with it being their 20th Serie A title, allowing them to gain a second star above their crest. As well, it moves the Nerazzurri one Serie A title ahead of AC Milan‘s total of 19.

Inter now stand alone in second of all-time Serie A titles with their 20, though they remain some way short of Juventus‘ tally of 36.

Inzaghi will now be aiming for his Nerazzurri to finish the season in style. Should they win each of their remaining five games, they will end their title-winning campaign with an impressive 101 points. It appears certain that they will surpass Napoli‘s 2022/23 title-winning total of 90.

Inter’s best-ever points total in Serie A came in 2006/07 when Roberto Mancini led them to 97.

The highest-ever points total in Serie A is held by Juventus, who recorded 102 in 2013/13. Inter had been on track to better that before their Matchday 32 draw against Cagliari.
