Season overviewEdit

The 2005–06 Serie A season opened with success in the Supercoppa Italiana, beating Juventus 1–0 in extra time with a goal scored by Verón.[2] During the Champions League group stage, the side managed to have a line-up of 11 foreign players on the pitch: the only European was Luís Figo, playing the second time.[3] Despite a good first half (also including a 3–2 win in derby, that lacked since 2002)[4] Inter did not have a great second half,[5] and knocked out in the Champions League by Villareal.[6]

On the pitch, the season finished like the previous with third place and the win of the Coppa Italia against Roma.[7] However, during the summer after the World Cup, Juventus and Milan were caught in the Calciopoli scandal: in late July, a few weeks after Italian national team triumph in Germany, Juventus was stripped of the title, and Inter was awarded the 2005–06 title.[8] Further, the relegation of Juventus to Serie B made Inter the only club to be present in all seasons of the modern Serie A (from 1929–30).
