Diego Milito scored two stunning goals as Inter landed their first European Cup since 1965 with a 2-0 win over Bayern Munich, securing an unprecedented Italian treble and handing coach Jose Mourinho his second UEFA Champions League crown in what could well be his last match in charge of the Nerazzurri.
Bayern Munich 0-2 Internazionale Milano
After a wait of 45 years, Inter were crowned European champions for the third time as Diego Milito's brilliantly taken double put paid to Bayern Munich in Madrid. Both sides came into the final having won domestic doubles and it was Bayern who initially looked the more likely to force a breakthrough. Jose Mourinho's side have shown their clinical side throughout this season's UEFA Champions League, however, and demonstrated it again after 35 minutes as Milito, who scored the only goal in the Nerazzurri's victory over Roma in the final of the Coppa Italia and against Siena on the last day of the Serie A season to secure the Scudetto, outstripped the Bayern defence to score. Though the German side continued to dominate territory and possession, there was no way back when Milito again broke through with 20 minutes left to secure Inter's first European Cup victory since their consecutive triumphs of 1964 and 1965 and, with it, a special treble.
