The Nerazzurri’s eleven-year-long wait to regain the Scudetto finally came to an end this season — even before the last four games were played.

For the Inter Milan players, coaching staff, management, and the fans, this moment could not have been more glorious.

Inter came close in the previous 2019/20 season and despite being very close to Juve that season, very few people would have easily predicted that the following season would be Inter’s year. Ten games into the 2020/2021 season and Inter were five points of league leaders, AC Milan.

As must be done with every great championship and worthy milestones there will be multiple reflections on past events that’ll help to put things into perspective.

Inter finally turned things around in a way that made their fans realize that they were witnessing an inspired well-motivated Inter team hungry for victory – needless to say that Inter fans have been on the lookout for some betting information on their team on sites like this site.

Here are five of the most significant Serie A matches that — together— clarified Inter’s supremacy as kings of Italian football;

Inter 4-3 Fiorentina, September 2020

ACF Fiorentina, despite performances in recent seasons, remains a historically relevant side in Serie A. There was no doubt that, in the first game of the season, Fiorentina would make an early attempt to put Inter down.

Expected to be an easy match-up, things didn’t go well for Inter early on when Fiorentina scored in the second minute of the contest.

Inter fell behind twice in that game and had to stage an impressive late comeback performance to edge Fiorentina in a seven-game thriller.

Even with an early sluggish performance, Inter found the mental fortitude to come out on top. That was the first display of a champion’s never-give-up spirit.

Inter 1-0 Napoli, December 2020

An early exit from the Champions League is not exactly a confidence booster. The frustration was obvious and the fans needed to be reassured that the entire season still held promise.

In perhaps the most hard-fought Inter win in last season’s Serie A, the players had to do their best to edge Napoli. Goalkeeper Handanovic was extraordinary on that day and he pulled off a few magnificent saves.

That win put Inter second within one point of leaders at the time, AC Milan. A loss would have sent Inter to fourth position.

Inter Milan 3-1 Lazio, February 2021

Entering into 22nd Match Day, Inter had not led the league once at that stage since the impressive 2009-10 campaign.

AC Milan had already lost to Spezia and a win for Inter would be enough to help them take the lead. Matched against one of the better teams in Serie A, Inter held their own and with help from a Lukaku brace, beat Lazio 3-1.

That win sent them to the top of Serie A.

AC Milan 0-3 Inter Milan, February 2021

Taking the lead in Serie A a week before was good news. But, Inter needed to solidify their hold on the table leadership by making a statement to the just-displace league leaders, AC Milan.

Within five minutes, Inter was in front. The statement had been made — loudly. When the final whistle was blown, Inter had won their old rivals and most in-form league opponents 3-0.

Now, there was no looking back.

Crotone 0-2 Inter Milan, May 2021

Inter defeating Crotone brought a little surprise. Inter had already won enough games to get the championship secured. They were on a roll!

Atalanta’s draw at Sassuolo all but sealed a victory that seemed irreversible at this point. What makes this match significant is that it was a testament to the fact that Inter didn’t look like slowing down anytime soon.
