Milan needed to not beat Inter this Sunday in Cagliari to become champions in Italy for the first time in 11 years, the 19th in their history, but that could not happen. The black and blue team won 1-3 at the Unipol Domus and the match for the ‘scudetto’ will be decided on the final day of Serie A, which will be played on Sunday, May 22nd.
Thus, Milan, who visited Sassuolo on the final day of Serie A, had 83 points, while Inter, who host Sampdoria, had 81. The result was in the hands of red and black.
Inter, who still ruled Italy until the end of the match, could not breathe easy. But goals from Darmian and Lautaro Martínez (author of a brace) allow him to eventually postpone the flow of his eternal rival citizen, who has done his afternoon homework by beating Atalanta 2-0 at the San Siro.
Through VAR, Inter had a Milan Skriniar goal that was disallowed by handball in the 11th minute. A blow for Simone Inzaghi’s team, who finally took the lead thanks to a goal from Matteo Darmian, after a cross from Ivan Perisic. It is 25 ‘.
Inter had to wait for the second half, at 51 ‘, to extend their advantage, which they achieved thanks to a great goal by Lautaro Martínez, who took advantage of a ball sent in by Nicolò Barella.
But Cagliari fought for its permanence with the greats and was able to close the gap through Charalambos Lykogiannis, assisted by Marko Rog. From there, another ‘target’ of the Sardinian became the champion in Milan.
It did not happen. Lautaro completed his brace, assisted by Roberto Gagliardini. It is 84 ‘. Denzel Dumfries hit the ball to the post at the end. Cagliari’s defeat meant the Sardinian team could not depend on itself on the final day to avoid relegation.
