Minute Text commentary
45' No injury-time at the end of the first half here at San Siro: brilliant 45 minutes from Inter, who lead Sampdoria 3-1 thanks to Gagliardini's opener and an Alexis Sanchez brace
42' Lautaro tries to find Vecino in behind the Blucerchiato defence: Colley is stretched but manages to send the Inter Number 8 away from goal
37' GOAL! GOOOAAAALLL!! It's the Alexis show again! Hakimi's cross is volleyed home by Sanchez, who finds the far corner to give Inter that two-goal cushion back: 3-1
35' Sampdoria have halved the deficit with Keita, who nets after a save from Handanovic to deny Candreva: 2-1
34' Hakimi continues to raid down the right: his latest cross, almost an assist to put this game to bed, is seized by Audero
31' Foul on Lautaro by Tonelli: he handed "Toro" off in the face and will inevitably be booked for it
27' GOAL! GOOOAAALL!! Sancheeeeeez! Break from Gagliardini who brought the ball forward, then freed up Inter's number 7, who was cool as you like one-on-one with Audero: 2-0!
22' Hakimi's cross from the right is headed clear by Tonelli
19' Candreva's left-footed strike is deflected for a corner. Third corner for the visitors
18' More Inter danger: great ball from Eriksen to find Young whose pass found Sanchez. His flick set up Hakimi, whose left-footed effort was stopped by Audero.
14' From the resultant corner, Hakimi sees another powerful effort, this time with his right foot, fly over the bar.
13' What acceleration from Hakimi, who drives from his own box to the edge of Sampdoria's, but his left-footed shot - which looked destined for the corner - is tipped wide by a brilliant Audero save to avoid a second Inter goal.
11' Keita with an attempt from inside the box, which is blocked out for a corner by a well-timed intervention from D'Ambrosio
10' Another great move from the Nerazzurri - Lautaro plays Hakimi in on goal, but his right-footed effort is blocked well on the slide by Colley
5' GOAL! GOOOOOAAALLL!! Gagliardiniiii! Inter take the lead early on, after a wonderful, flowing move: assist from Ashley Young, with Inter's number 5 providing the finishing touch. 1-0!!
1' Here we go: Sampdoria kick us off. Come on lads, FORZA INTER!
1' Antonio Conte's men come out to a guard of honour from the applauding Blucerchiati ! Kick-Off moments away
1' Inter return to San Siro as Champions of Italy: the Nerazzurri, mathematically confirmed as champions with four games to spare, welcome Ranieri's Sampdoria here today
Minute Text commentary
45' Full time at San Siro: Inter celebrate the Scudetto in the best possible way, despatching Sampdoria 5-1. A brace from Sanchez and goals from Gagliardini, Pinamonti and Lautaro were more than enough for a convincing victory.
40' Quagliarella's cross, looking for Candreva at the back-post, is anticipated well by Young, who heads behind for a corner
37' Left-footed effort from Quagliarella is straight down the throat of Radu, who collects easily

28' Change for Sampdoria: Quagliarella for Keita.
28' Final sub for Inter too: Sensi replaces Lautaro.
27' Lautaro so close to a brilliant second, as he aimed for the fair corner after controlling a long ball on his chest. Audero was nowhere near it.

16' Fourth change for Conte's side: Barella replaces goalscorer Gagliardini

Sampdoria could win both matches against Inter in a single Serie A campaign for the third time in their history, after 2016/17 and 1990/91.

The last draw between Inter and Sampdoria in Serie A came back in October 2015 (1-1), since then, seven Nerazzurri wins against three for Sampdoria.

In each of the last five Serie A matches between Inter and Sampdoria at Meazza stadium, both sides have scored: 18 goals in total (3.6 on average).

Since losing against Sampdoria in the reverse fixture, Inter have gone 18 games without defeat in Serie A (W14 D4) – the last time they embarked on a longer unbeaten run in the top-flight came back in February 2008 (31).

Sampdoria have won three of their last four league games (L1), as many wins in their previous 12 matches (D4 L5).

Inter won the Scudetto with four matchdays remaining - the last time the Nerazzurri won the Italian top-flight with the more games still to play came back in 2006/07 (five in that case).

Inter could win 14 home games in a row for the first time in their Serie A history - currently 13, level with a streak set back in May 2011.

 Inter’s Antonio Conte has managed 199 games in the Italian top-flight: he will become the manager with the most wins in his first 200 Serie A games in charge, in the three points for a win era (currently at 135).

Since Conte joined Inter (from 2019/20), Romelu Lukaku (44) and Lautaro Martínez (29) have scored 73 goals combined, only two teams have a more prolific couple of players in the Top-5 European Leagues in the period: Bayern Munich (91: Lewandowski and Gnabry) and Barcelona (74: Messi and Griezmann).
