The odds may be stacked against Inter winning the title on Sunday but manager Simone Inzaghi has been in the exact same position as a player and won.
Although Sassuolo have beaten all of the top teams this season, Milan are heavy favourites to get the job done at the Mapei and win their first Serie A title since 2010-11.
However, all Juventus had to do on the final day of the 1999-2000 season was win at midtable Perugia but they suffered a shock 1-0 defeat allowing Inzaghi’s Lazio to overtake them on the final day of the campaign to win the title by a single point.
But two games later, Juve were stunned 2-0 at Verona and it meant the two sides went into the final day of the season separated by two points with Carlo Ancelotti’s Bianconeri in front.
Lazio eased to a 3-0 win over Reggina in the Roma sunshine in their final-day match with Inzaghi opening the scoring from the penalty spot but it was a different story in stormy Perugia.
Despite Juve protests, Collina ordered the match to restart and Perugia won 1-0 thanks a solitary goal by Alessandro Calori.
Perugia finished 10 that campaign, while Sassuolo are in 11th going into the final match day.
A repeat of that famous May 14, 2000 is improbable but, as Inzaghi knows, it’s certainly not impossible.
