It was only the second Serie A title in club history, and it ended in a shootout, but it was also a defining moment for Alessandro Del Piero, who scored in the first leg against Milan.
“I’m very happy with my goal, it’s a special one,” he said.
“It’s something that has always happened in my career.
It’s the most important moment in my life, I’m very proud of it.”
Del Pierio scored his 50th Serie E goal in the second leg.
He will finish with more than 4,000 Serie A goals, including 1,020 goals from the league.
The club is currently fourth in the standings, and there are still several matches to come.
Del Pieros last goal came in the 2-2 draw with Torino in March.
It was a consolation for a torrid start for the Rossoneri, who lost to Sassuolo 3-2 at the San Siro.
Alessandro De Marchi scored for the last time in the derby, his first Serie A victory in his debut season, but there are no doubts about his quality.
“The season started well and it continued in a positive direction.
There were no problems in the way of my performances, and we played in a good manner,” he told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“In the final I scored my 100th goal and it was a great feeling for the fans.
I’ve never scored more goals in my entire career, but I’ll never forget the derby.”
Del Mari scored twice in the 4-1 win over Fiorentina, and he has now scored four in the league this season.
The former Lazio forward has scored more Serie A in his last five games than he has in the entire season.
“After three games I felt good,” he admitted.
“There were no excuses and we didn’t get any tired.
We had to play with more energy and we did so.
We didn’t give up and kept pushing.”
De Marchio has not scored a goal since March 1, but the coach is happy with his efforts.
“For us, it was always about getting goals,” he added.
“Every goal was a test and I knew that every goal was going to be important for us.
For me it’s important to have a good result.”
