Serie A: Parma 0-2 Inter, SCUDETTO!!!!Sunday, 18 May 2008 17:00:03
PARMA - Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored a brace on his return to competitive action to hand Inter their sixteenth Serie A title in the club's Centenary season.
The Nerazzurri produced the perfect finish to a thrilling championship, winning a third consecutive Scudetto by three points after Roma were held to a 1-1 draw in Catania.
Mancini brought on the Swedish ace for Cesar on 51 minutes after a first half in which the Nerazzurri failed to take their chances.
It took Ibra just eleven minutes to make his impact. Played in by Stankovic, he sidestepped Couto and rifled an unstoppable low shot into the bottom left corner.
Inter were rarely troubled by the home side, and Zlatan produced another moment of magic with six minutes left, stabbing home after a marauding run by Maicon.
