Inter Milan Crowned Serie A Champions with Grand Celebration

Inter Milan's triumphant Serie A title celebration reached its peak on Sunday as the newly crowned champions paraded through the streets of Milan, greeted by thousands of jubilant fans. The team's 2-0 victory over Torino on Sunday sealed their 20th league championship with five matches to spare.

Simone Inzaghi's squad embarked on an open-top bus tour, making their way towards the iconic Piazza del Duomo, where a massive crowd had gathered. Fans erupted in cheers, waving flags and setting off fireworks in honor of their heroes.

Hakan Calhanoglu emerged as the star of the match, scoring both goals in the second half. His first strike came in the 56th minute, a stunning first-time effort, followed by a penalty four minutes later. Calhanoglu's performance was a fitting tribute to his pivotal role in Inter's title charge, having become one of Europe's top deep-lying playmakers since joining from AC Milan three years ago.

Torino's hopes were dealt a blow when Adrien Tameze was sent off in the 49th minute for a foul on Henrikh Mkhitaryan. With the numerical advantage, Inter dominated the remainder of the match, extending their lead over second-placed AC Milan to a commanding 19 points.

"Today is a wonderful day," said Calhanoglu. "I don't want to talk about that other lot (AC Milan). Today I'm going to have fun."

While Inter celebrated their on-field success, the club faces pressing off-field issues, including the repayment of a substantial loan and the pursuit of a new stadium. However, on this day, fans were focused on the joy of the moment, with the party expected to continue throughout the night.

In other Serie A action, Tammy Abraham scored a crucial goal for Roma in their 2-2 draw with Napoli. The English striker, who had been sidelined for most of the season with a knee injury, came off the bench to nod home a corner in the 88th minute. Roma remain in the final Champions League spot, four points ahead of Bologna.

Atalanta kept their top-four hopes alive with a 2-0 win over Empoli, while Daniele De Rossi's Bologna drew 1-1 with Udinese.
