AC Milan fans celebrate first Serie A title in 11 years

Thousands of fans filled the Piazza Duomo on Sunday (May 22) after AC Milan secured a first scudetto in over a decade.

Stefano Pioli’s side came into the final round of fixtures knowing a point would be enough for them to finish top ahead of rivals Inter Milan, but after Olivier Giroud squeezed the ball home in the 17th minute, a 19th Serie A title never looked in doubt.

Frenchman Giroud stabbed home a 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 Milan were getting on back at their shared San Siro stadium against Sampdoria.

There was no relenting from Milan as Franck Kessie slotted home a third four minutes later to effectively put the game, and title race, to bed before halftime.

The final whistle was greeted with wild scenes of celebration. Outside Milan’s picture postcard Cathedral fans launched fireworks and flares to celebrate their first league win for 11 years.
