Unbeaten in seventeen games, boasting the second-best attack, best defense, 24 wins, and only 2 losses, Inter is deservedly 11 points clear at the top of the Serie A table. And it's only a matter of time before the Nerazzurri’s dominance is to be rewarded.

After Milan's 3-0 defeat to Lazio, Inter can clinch its 19th Scudetto by beating Crotone Saturday and receiving some help from Sassuolo in form of a result (a win or tie would suffice) against Atalanta Sunday. Even should the title race not be mathematically over this weekend, Antonio Conte’s side only needs four points at most to ensure it finishes first.

Should they win out, La Dea’s max point total is 83, and Milan, Napoli, and Juventus could all end with 81 points at most. Inter is already at 79 with five games to go.

Buckle up my friends, because it's soon to be party time.

Deep breaths, we’re nearly there.

Forza Inter!
