At the start of this match, Inter knew that their fate would depend on a misstep by AC Milan on the lawn of Sassuolo. To believe in a second title in a row in the Championship, the Interists had to win against Sampdoria and wait for a defeat or a draw for the Rossoneri. But the miracle did not happen despite a great victory on Sunday.
Inter will have no regrets since they did the job in this match with a victory (3-0) thanks in particular to goals from Perisic and a double from Correa. Not enough, however, to clinch the title, because Inter therefore finished the season second in the standings, two small points behind their Milanese rival.
