Not only does Zanetti kiss his medal, but he kisses the Serie A Scudetto trophy and raises it proudly in the air! Congratulations once again to Inter. I'm Rick D'Andrea, and it has been a pleasure to bring you this match. Good afternoon.
And the crowd goes into raptures as Jose Mourinho is announced to receive his medal, but there is still one more person to come...Javier Zanetti, to lift the trophy.
The players are all being announced, as they come out to receive their medals.
And here comes the trophy, as it is being brought out onto the pitch, as well as the winners' medals.
Massimo Moratti makes his way onto the pitch to congratulate every player, and he is swamped by the Italian media, wanting a photo with the patron.
Inter have claimed the 2009/10 Scudetto, congratulations to the Nerazzurri for a fine season. We now await the official trophy presentation.
The players are ecstatic, overjoyed in the moment, as they claim their fifth consecutive Serie A title. They have also done the double, claiming the Coppa Italia. Now, they must focus on the Champions League final next weekend.
But it does not matter what happens, as referee Morganti blows the whistle for full-time. And the crowd erupts into a cheer for the Nerazzurri! An amazing scene here
Cambiasso heads for the corner, and is surrounded by two defenders. He taps into the shins of Rosi, and is awarded a corner.
Inter look to eat up the clock, as they hold up play. But in an effort to keep the game flowing, Diego Milito takes a shot on goal, but is wide again. Three balls end up on the field, with one thrown on there by Thiago Motta. He is given a yellow card, despite being already substituted off.
Three minutes of stoppage time is given by the fourth official.
Another nervous moment for Julio Cesar, as Rosi makes another run on the right wing, and whips in another dangerous ball. The Brazilian custodian makes a leap for the ball, but cannot claim it on the first go, and it almost falls to Calaio, who was hovering. Cesar is able to claim it on the second attempt.
Eto'o takes on Terzi, ducking and weaving on the edge of the area. He sends a low ball into the middle for Milito, who has to twist and turn his way to get his shot off, but cannot do much.
An extremely dangerous moment for Inter, as Rosi makes space on the right wind, and sends in a cross-come-shot for the Bianconeri. Julio Cesar does not come for it, and the ball - luckily for him - goes wide.
Yellow Card Cristian Chivu
Zanetti makes another run forward for Inter, as it is three-on-three for the Nerazzurri. He tries to use Pandev on his left, but instead, decides to try to skip past Cribari, but is closed down.
Siena venture forward via Jajalo and Rosi on the right flank, with the former trying to to look for Calaio, but not luck
Milito tries to take on Cribari as he charges into the box. Spotting Eto'o behind him, the Argetnine lays it off for him, trying to tee him up, but he is shut down.
Substitution Paul Costantin Codrea Reginaldo
Codrea off, Reginaldo off.
Maicon looks to advance, taking two Siena defenders with him, which opens up the space behind him, so that he can lay the ball back for Eto'o. Eto'o switches play, but the ball goes out for a throw-in.
A chance for Eto'o, as he combines with Milito for a one-two, allowing the Cameroon international to get a shot off, but blocked by Curci.
Pandev is on the march, as he takes the ball up the park with Milito in support. He uses the Argentine, who gets a weak shot off, but the rebound off Curci falls the way of the former Lazio player. But he is in an offside position, as he slots the ball in the back of the net.
STANKOVIC HITS THE CROSSBAR! Milito steals the loose ball away from Cribari, laying it off for the midfielder, and his volley hits the top of the crossbar.
Maicon makes a surging run along the right, looking to put in a dangerous cross, but no luck.
Almost a rare defensive error by the Beneamata sees Calaio into space, but the linesman raises his flag.
Sneijder to come off - may have picked up a knock - and Chivu to come on. Mourinho's final sub of the day.
Substitution Wesley Sneijder Cristian Chivu
A weak shot by Jajalo is easy pickings by Julio Cesar, who has not had much to do this afternoon. The Croatian attempted to cut into the middle, and his left-foot shot is easily stopped by the Brazilian.
Corner to Inter. What will Sneijder do with it? As it comes in, Samuel is the first to react, but his header is parried away.
20 minutes to go between Inter and Scudetto Number 18.
Pandev is shoved off the ball by Rosi, and the referee is quick to blow his whistle.
Inter are on the counterattack, as Zanetti dispossesses Rosi, and fins Sneijder, who in turn places a pass to Pandev. Pandev tries to thread something to Milito, but not this time.
Throw-in to Siena, as Rosi and Jajalo combine down the right wing, attempting to launch the former forward into attack, but Samuel and Zanetti shut down any opportunity.
Referee Morganti awards another yellow card. This time to Codrea for a trip on Cambiasso.

Stankovic on, Balotelli off.
Substitution Mario Balotelli Dejan Stankovic
INTER HAVE SCORED THE OPENING GOAL!!! DIEGO MILITO has put the Nerazzurri ahead, and the crowd has come alive! His 22nd goal in the league could not be more important than that! Zanetti steals the ball, and places a through-pass for his Argentina team-mate. Beating the offside, Milito calmly strikes it past Curci. 1-0, and the lead again on the ladder
Goal Diego Alberto Milito
Siena come forward through Ghezzal, as the Bianconeri look to inflict damage on the scoreboard, but not this time.

Zanetti storms down the left flank, and slips one through to Milito, who turns and gets a thunderous shot on target, but Curci again is the saviour. Corner. From the corner, it is 'Il Principe' again who has the best chance to score.
Maccarone clutches his hamstring, and could be getting ready to come off soon.
Eto'o puts a floating ball into the middle, trying to spot up Milito, but Curci claims it.
Siena have started the second half lively, and look like a team on a mission.

Concerned looks are all over the faces of the Beneamata faithful that have come to watch the match, as they know what things mean as they stand. A hush has fallen over the stadium during the interval. An eerie feeling.
Half-time whistled by Morganti, and both sides go into the interval tied at 0-0. On the live ladder, Roma have overtaken Inter, and lead by one point, but there are 45 minutes still to be played. Can the Nerazzurri get a goal, take the lead and win the Scudetto? Stay tuned.
Milito and Eto'o both have a chance to put their side up, as it is Maicon once again who puts in a ball from the right. But it races past everyone in the box.

Sneijder...a perfect cross for Balotelli, but Cribari marks the starlet and Curci claims the ball. But a good chance for the Nerazzurri.
Corner to Inter, and Sneijder sends the ball in. Samuel was unchallenged, and once again headers over the crossbar. Another chance gone begging for the away side.
Vergassola opens up the Inter defence, catching Zanetti out of position, giving to the ball out out Jajalo, who takes on the Argentine. He cuts in and takes a half-shot, half-pass, as at the last second sees Ghezzal make a run into the box, but neither are effective, and the ball goes out for a goal kick.
The crowd respond to the result, as it tries to spur on the Nerazzurri.
Maccarone is watched like a hawk by Walter Samuel, as the striker goes for a surging run into the box from the left. The Argentine sees the ball out for a goalkick. Word has come in that Roma have scored.
CROSSBAR! Balotelli creates something from nothing, but his volley mat have beaten Curci, but not the crossbar. It is Maicon once again who puts a ball into the middle, and the 19-year-old wonderkid gets into a good position for the volley.
Julio Cesar denies Maccarone from way out! The Brazilian is at full-stretch as the striker takes on four Nerazzurri and strikes a wonderful left-foot shot.
Inter are happy to hold the ball up, looking to move the ball from side-to-side. Motta lays a pass out on the wing for Maicon. The Brazilian whips in another cross and Eto'o somehow manages to get a powerful shot on target, but Curci again stops the chance from going in.
Cribari makes a tough tackle on Eto'o, but the referee says it was a fair challenge. The Brazilian manages to get the ball forward to Ghezzal, who gives it off to Maccarone, but the bald-headed striker cannot do much with the chance.
Siena are on the move via Maccarone and Ekdal. The latter lays a pass off for Jajalo, but Zanetti shuts him down.
Corner to Inter. Cribari cops an attempted cross in the face, and goes down. He is some pain, and walks off the pitch to receive some treatment. A looping ball from Sneijder from the corner is met by Samuel, but Curci once again keeps the ball out!
And again the Brazilian right-back pushes up the ground and places a cross into the middle. He finds Eto'o, but the striker was marked, and the ball goes out for a corner. The ensuing corner is taken, and Walter Samuel almost kept his header down, but it went over the crossbar.
Thiago Motta spots Zanetti making a run on the left flank, and puts a pass out for the captain, but it travels too far. Goal kick.
Maicon sets up the cross, but it isn't as dangerous as his previous one.
Balotelli stayed on the ground after his header, holding his head. Seems okay, and play continues.
Inter seem happy to hold onto the ball, passing it around the ground. Maicon whips in a dangerous cross to the back post, finding Balotelli. His header is centred, spotting Milito, and the Argentine from the six-yard box is parried by Curci. What a reflex save!
Rosi earns his side a throw-in after tempting Sniejder to press. But the tempo has dropped after 20 minutes. 0-0 at the moment.
Corner to Siena. Maccarone tries a thunderous shot, and it is deflected out for the corner. It is the striker who takes it, and Julio Cesar catches the ball, stopping any chance.
Maccarone takes on three Intere defenders, spins around looking for Ekdal, but the loanee is dispossessed in the penalty box.
Yellow Card Cribari
Another offside for Milito, as he is in an illegal position. But the referee has given a yellow card for protesting.
Corner to Inter...their first for the game, but Balotelli and Samuel muddle each other up, and the attempted header isn't damaging on the scoreboard.

Rosi tries to move the ball along to Jajalo on the right, but his pass is intercepted by Zanetti, standing his ground and claiming the ball.
Del Grosso gets the yellow card for a clumsy tackle. Had both Balotelli's jersey, tugging it, as well as clipping his ankles. Sneijder hits it with power, but straight into the wall.
Yellow Card Cristiano Del Grosso
Zanetti is taken down, and Sneijder takes the free-kick quickly, keeping it along the ground. But the linesman has seen an offside by Milito, and raises his flag immediately.
Materazzi attempts to launch a long and hopeful ball for Balotelli, but the forward is marked well by Del Grosso.
Siena mean business today, and this could mean danger for the Beneamata if they have their mind on the Champions League final.
Rosi is sent to ground by Thiago Motta, but the defender quickly gets to his feet, and places a cross in. The rebound doesn;'t go far, as Ekdal is in a extremely dangerous position, weaving past Lucio, but his flick-shot goes wide!
Siena come forward for the first time in the game via Jajalo, but the Inter pressure sees his flounder wide, and over the goal line
Milito does extremely well to beat the offside trap, as a ball comes in from Thiago Motta over the defence, but he slips at the crucial moment, as he tries to control it.
Sneijder's effort was short, and easily handled, but the league leaders have regained possession, and quickly send it back out to the right. And SuperMario has it again, taking on Del Grosso.
Inter choose to pass the ball along the defensive lines, just getting rid of some very early nerves, but Balotelli is up-ended, and is brought to the ground by Rosi. First opportunity goes to the Nerazzurri on the right flank
All the formalities are over, and the players are ready to go. Referee Morganti gets this one under way, and the league leaders get this match going! Here we go.
Balotelli with the opening shot! Inches away from breaking the dealdlock. Sneijder sends in a dangerous ball into the middle from the right looking for Milito. The ball goes over his head, but the teenager is behind him and volleys, missing by not much.
For Siena, unfortunately, this will be their last match in the top flight, as they have been relegated. Robur president Massimo Mezzaroma has asked his players to give it their utmost, and spoil the Nerazzurri party, to give their fans something to cheer for before making the drop into Serie B.
The equation is simple for the Nerazzurri: win today, and the Scudetto is theirs. Draw or lose, then all eyes will be on the result of Chievo-Roma. A win for the Giallorossi (and a draw or loss for Inter) will see them claim the Scudetto, but anything else, will cost them the title.
Good afternoon and welcome to the Stadio Franchi in what is the final match of the season, and what anticipation surrounds it! I'm Rick D'Andrea and will be bringing you Goal.com's live commentary of this match.
