Serie A: Inter 3-0 Siena


Italian champions celebrate fourth consecutive title with goals from Cambiasso, Balotelli and Ibra

MILAN - Inter celebrated their fourth consecutive Serie A title in perfect fashion with a victory over Siena in front of 74,000 jubilant fans at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.

The Nerazzurri might have had a sleepless night after last night's 17th Scudetto festivities, but there was no evidence of match weariness as José Mourinho's men brushed aside Siena with a hat-trick of goals.

Esteban Cambiasso popped up at the end of the first half to stab home after Siena goalkeeper Curci blocked Stankovic's long-range follow-up.

Inter doubled their lead seven minutes after the break when Mario Balotelli rounded Curci and slotted into an open net with the outside of his right foot after latching on to Figo's long-range pass.

Siena's Calaiò headed against the upright with Julio Cesar stranded as the Bianconeri went close to reducing the deficit, but Zlatan Ibrahimovic completed a comforable victory with less than fifteen minutes left to play, collecting Mancini's assist and rifling a low shot through Curci's legs.

To their credit, Giampaolo's men kept fighting and Julio Cesar made a brilliant diving save to deny Galloppa, before Coppola saw a long-range effort come back off the post.

Mourinho introduced Paolo Orlandoni for Julio Cesar in the final stages and the Italian goalkeeper picked up where the Brazilian left off, making a fine tipped save from Ghezzal to celebrate his Serie A debut for Inter with a clean sheet.
