Eleven years that AC Milan has been waiting for this. Italian champion for the last time in 2011, the rossoneri club won the 19ᵉ Serie A title in its history on Sunday May 22, thanks to a convincing success on the lawn of Sassuolo (3-0). The Milanese had to win on this 38ᵉ and last day of the Italian championship, so as not to see their rivals Inter Milan, defending champions, pass them by.
The Rossoneri did not shake and completed the deal in thirty minutes, thanks in particular to two goals from Olivier Giroud. The French striker is thus crowned Italian champion for his first season in Serie A. This title comes to devote the work of Stefano Pioli, coach of AC Milan since October 2019, whose coming to the club had been greatly criticized by the supporters. Inter Milan, who won for the honor against Sampdoria (3-0), finished 2ᵉ, two points behind AC Milan.
