[CHAMPIONS] Swedish star Zlatan Ibrahimovic returned to action for the first time since March 29 and scored both goals to give Inter Milan a 2-0 win at Parma on the final day of the Italian season that clinched its third straight Serie A title and 16th overall.

Inter struggled in wet conditions at Parma, so Coach Roberto Mancini brought on Ibrahimovic in a three-pronged attack alongside Julio Cruz and Mario Balotelli.

The Swede needed just 11 minutes on the field to score from 20 yards after taking a pass Dejan Stankovic in his stride. Ibrahimovic scored his second goal on a volley off a cross from Brazilian Maicon.

Inter's lead over Roma had shrunk from 11 points to one with one game to play. Roma took the lead for the Scudetto on Sunday when Mirko Vucinic put Roma ahead, 1-0, eight minutes into its game at Catania, but Ibra's goals saved Inter.

Roma need to win at Catania and for Parma to tie or beat Inter. Jorge Andres Martinez equalized in the 85th minute for Catania to give his team a 1-1 draw and save it from relegation. With the loss Parma, went down.
