Serie A verdicts: Milan win title, Cagliari relegated, Salernitana safe

by | May 22, 2022 22:04

Milan have won the Serie A title, while Venezia, Genoa and Cagliari have been relegated and Fiorentina returned to Europe.

It was a thrilling final matchday in Italy, with Milan winning their first Scudetto in 11 years. Stefano Pioli’s men lifted the Tricolore in Reggio Emilia following a 3-0 win over Sassuolo. Inter beat Sampdoria with the same result in Milan, but it wasn’t enough to catch their city rivals at the top of the table.

The top-four race had been decided already, with Napoli and Juventus joining the Milanese sides in Europe’s elite competition for 2022-23.

Watch: Milan lift the Serie A 2021-22 trophy

Lazio and Roma have qualified for the Europa League, so José Mourinho won’t need to win the Conference League to gain access to the competition. Fiorentina beat Juventus at the Artemio Franchi 2-0 yesterday, returning to Europe for the first time in five years. Vincenzo Italiano’s side will play in the Conference League next season.

Cagliari have joined Venezia and Genoa in Serie B. The Sardinians were held to a 0-0 draw by Venezia tonight and didn’t make the most of Salernitana‘s 4-0 loss at home against Udinese.

    After that scandal against Spezia, I have to admit it’s well deserved. One could argue Inter lost the Scudetto, and I’d agree, but compliments to Milan regardless.

    @Tom.

    Ngulamammt will argue Inter lost the Scudetto.

    Inter did not lose scudetto, but lost Lukaku. I mean, many penalties missed and Lukaku never missed penalty as Inter player. I can say Inter lost points against Genoa, but also Milan drew with Salernitana. I can say whatever, but one is true, Inter did not lose scudetto, but Milan won it.

    Congratulations to Milan. I was hoping Inter would win, but I think it’s unfair to Milan to say Inter lost it. Milan’s players earned it by playing a tiny bit more consistently with fewer costly errors over the campaign.

    Milan earned it on the pitch as the most consistent team. Yes, they took advantage of others tripping up but so what? You can only beat who you play against. Well done.
    As a Juventino, it’s important to have strong opponents in the league because it raises the quality of the competition and the nazionale. Only when Juve and Milan are strong do the nazionale really do well. And the rivalry is on the pitch and not courtrooms. Forza Juve but we’ll done Milan.

    Well done Milan, well deserved win even though the referee’s favoured Inter trought out the season. Don’t get ne wrong, italy is a beautiful country but this corruption needs to be stamped out. Forza Milan!!!!

    Mr. Fish and Chips, crumpets and jammie dodgers, it just goes to show with a little competition, PhD Max has been exposed. Even the lesser teams figured him out with ease. Emery did not even have to get out of first gear to dispatch the serial whipping boy of CL runners up winners. Now again, innit tea time, the 21st of the day?

    Where are all the interistas?? Losers!!

  9. I MISS JUVENTUS IN SERIE B 🤡

    Congrats to Maldini and Milan.

    Cagliari management finally got what they deserved, curious to see how much they can NOW receive for Nandez transfer.
