Mourinho celebrates title after Milan crash
Monday 18 May 2009
Jose Mourinho is celebrating winning a league title in a third different country – Portugal, England and now Italy – after Internazionale wrapped up Serie A with three games left to play, courtesy of Milan's failure to beat Udinese on Saturday.
In the race for a champions league spot, Juventus were held to a 2-2 home draw by Atalanta yesterday to leave third place and an automatic Champions League place far from secure.
The draw, their seventh league game without a win in a row, was played behind closed doors after fans were banned for racist chanting at last month's draw with Internazionale. Fourth-placed Fiorentina are just a point behind Juventus with two to play after Alberto Gilardino sealed a 1-0 home win over Sampdoria.
In France, Nantes' hopes of escaping relegation from Ligue 1 suffered another blow when they were held 1-1 at home by Stade Rennes yesterday. The promoted side, who have won only one of their last 14 games, remain second from bottom on 34 points, three points from safety with two games left. Rennes are seventh on 58 points, behind Lille on goal difference after the northern side drew 1-1 at home to ninth-placed Nice.
Marseilles had a chance to go top of the table on goal difference when they faced champions Lyons in last night's late kick-off. Bordeaux moved three points clear of Marseilles on 74 points with a 3-2 home victory over Le Mans on Saturday.
