Milan took control as it chased a two-goal deficit that decreased to one when Fikayo Tomori struck in the 80th minute, but the only remaining fireworks were twin red cards to Milan's Theo Hernandez and Inter's Denzel Dumfries in the fourth minute of stoppage time.

It's a second scudetto for Inter boss Simone Inzaghi, who won Serie A with Lazio in 1999-2000. He's also led Lazio and Inter to a combined three Italian Cups and five Italian Super Cups, finishing runner-up to Manchester City in the 2022-23 UEFA Champions League.

The win gives Inter a 17-point advantage over second-place AC Milan with five games left on the domestic docket.
