Internazionale are on the cusp of being crowned 2020-21 Serie A champions and breaking Juventus’ stranglehold on the Scudetto.

Inter will be crowned Serie A winners for the first time since 2010 on Sunday if Atalanta fail to win at Sassuolo.

The Nerazzurri sit 13 points clear of city rivals AC Milan in second with Juve a further three points back in fifth. Atalanta and Napoli occupy third and fourth place respectively.

Inter took a huge step towards the title with a 2-0 win at Crotone on Saturday. A result which also relegated the hosts at Stadio Ezio Scida.

Christian Eriksen fired Inter in front before Hakimi, 22, finished off a rapid counter-attack in second half stoppage-time to put the icing on the cake. The Morocco international has now scored seven goals in Serie A this season, while he has also assisted the same amount.
