Internazionale Milano claimed the treble after their 2-0 defeat of Bayern Munich in Madrid gave them the 2009/10 Champions League title. Crowned as champions of Europe, Inter can also claim five consecutive Italian league titles and the Italian Cup this season. Diego Milito (pictured) scored both goals for Inter as the Italian side made the most of their chances on goal. Bayern nearly scored on several occasions as Arjen Robben and Thomas Müller forced Júlio César saves. But in the end, despite Bayern’s control of possession, the Germans simply did not have enough of a creative force, apart from Robben, to deconstruct the Inter defense. Notably absent was Franck Ribéry, whose skill on the ball and piercing runs could have at least stretched the Inter defense. Hans-Jörg Butt, the Bayern keeper, had a few fine saves of his own, preventing the score from really getting out of hand. Considering who all Inter beat just to get to the final (Chelsea and Barcelona), this space is willing to admit that the Italian champions were worthy victors and champions of Europe.
