Inter Milan clinch fifth Serie A title in a row with 1-0 win at Siena

Siena 0-1 Inter Milan

Inter Milan clinched a fifth consecutive Serie A crown after a nervy 1-0 final-day victory at Siena.

Diego Milito scored the only goal in the second half of the match at Stadio Artemio Franchi as Inter finished the season two points clear of second-placed Roma, who were 2-0 winners at Chievo.

The win secures Inter's second title under coach Jose Mourinho, and guarantees the Nerazzurri a place in the record books as the first team to win five back-to-back league titles since Juventus achieved the feat in the 1930s.

Chievo 0-2 AS Roma

Roma were comfortable 2-0 winners at Chievo but their efforts were to no avail as Inter held on for victory.

Mirko Vucinic put Roma ahead in the 39th minute after Francesco Totti had earlier hit the post. Daniele De Rossi doubled Roma's lead on the stroke of half-time and the Giallorossi held on without major scares.

Sampdoria 1-0 Napoli

Sampdoria sealed their place in next season's Champions League with a win over Napoli which preserves their unbeaten home record this term.

A goal from Giampaolo Pazzini early in the second half sealed the points as Samp saw off the challenge of Palermo to join Inter, Roma and AC Milan in Europe's elite club competition.

Atalanta 1-2 Palermo

Palermo upheld their end of the bargain with a 2-1 win at Atalanta but it was not enough to take fourth.

Edinson Cavani opened the scoring for Palermo after 12 minutes before Fabio Ceravolo's 48th-minute leveller looked to have secured a draw for Atalanta but Cavani popped up with his second at the death to secure the win.
