The 2006–07 season was Football Club Internazionale Milano's 98th in existence and 91th consecutive season in the top flight of Italian football. The team competed in Serie A, in the Coppa Italia, in the Supercoppa Italiana and in the UEFA Champions League.

Season overview[edit]

The relegation of Juventus to Serie B due to Calciopoli, and Milan and Fiorentina's penalisations, made Inter a clear favourite for the title: the side was empowered with the arrivals of Zlatan Ibrahimović, Patrick Vieira, Fabio Grosso and Maicon.[1] In early September, the club suffered a tragedy: Inter's president Giacinto Facchetti died at the age of 64, due to a cancer.[2]

The 2006–07 season was signed by records: Inter won 17 games in row for an achievement still unbeaten.[3] Inter also got 11 wins in away matches and obtained the title with 5 games left to play.[4] The side ended with 97 points, 22 over Roma which came second: in 38 matches Inter collected 30 wins, 7 draws and just one defeat (the first in Serie A since April 2006).[5]
