Victory over Siena today will clinch a third consecutive Scudetto for Roberto Mancini's Inter Milan.

The coach said: "I hoped this would be a battle until the end, because if you win it then you appreciate it more.

"Victory is all that counts. Anything else just doesn't enter into it.

"We need three points and those could come this weekend or next Sunday at Parma. Football is not an exact science, you never can tell when and how something will happen.

"Now that Siena are safe, they can play without pressure. They have had an extraordinary season, have nothing to lose and will go out there to win.

"It all depends on us now. If we do well, then we have a great chance of taking home this Scudetto."
