[ITALY] Winning the Scudetto is old hat for Inter Milan, which clinched its fifth straight Serie A crown following Sunday's 1-0 win at Siena. The prize it eyes is the UEFA Champions League, which will be played Saturday against Bayern Munich in Madrid (TV: FOX, 2:30 pm, live, ET).

Inter play Bayern Munich in Madrid on May 22 when both teams will be bidding to make history respectively by securing a league, cup and Champions League treble.

Inter won the title thanks to a 57th-minute goal from Argentine Diego Milito.

"I'd never won a title before on the last day and don't want to do it again," said Coach Jose Mourinho, which has won two titles each at FC Porto, Chelsea and Inter." I prefer winning it with four or five matches to spare."

Inter hasn't won the European Cup since 1965.

"This is an incredible joy, a reward for all the hard work we've put in over the year," said Milito. "From tomorrow we will think about that great Champions League final."
