The Nerazzurri’s 11-year wait for a 19th Serie A title could finally come to an end this weekend.
A 19th Serie A title is up for grabs as Inter Milan visit bottom-placed side Crotone on Saturday evening.
The Nerazzurri, who hold an 11-point lead at the top of the league table, can claim the Scudetto by beating Crotone, while hoping that second-placed Atalanta cannot win against Sassuolo on Sunday.
Should everything go according to plan, Inter will win a first Serie A title since their historic treble-winning campaign under Jose Mourinho in 2009/10.

And manager Antonio Conte, who has previously tasted league success at Juventus and Chelsea, has received his fair share of praise from the club’s vice-president Javier Zanetti.
The Argentine, who captained Inter to their last Scudetto in 2010, told Twitch channel 2010misterchip: “We need that last push.
“I’m very happy with the work of the last two years.
“Conte is doing something extraordinary. The players have grown a lot, it has been a difficult year for everyone due to the pandemic, but with a lot of effort.
“It wasn’t easy, it’s a complicated and tight championship.”
