The 2023/2024 Serie A season is underway and with several teams considered to be in with a chance of winning the Scudetto, this may be one of the most open and entertaining divisions in European football this time around.

Napoli were comfortable winners of the title last season and despite consistent rumours, the only key player to leave this summer was South Korean defender Kim Min-jae, who has moved to Bayern Munich. Despite this, the Neopolitans, who currently sit in fourth, are not considered to be the favourites for the Scudetto this year.
The favourites to win it this time around are Inter, who perhaps focused more on the Champions League last term where they ran out eventual runners up, losing the final to Manchester City in Istanbul. Simone Inzaghi has looked to supplement his squad with some experienced additions over the summer and the bookmakers clearly value these signings by making the Nerazurri favourites.
After a flawless start to the season, that saw them win each of their first five matches, they were brought back down to earth with a 2-1 home defeat to Sassuolo. Four wins from their previous five matches however, including back-to-back wins over Roma and Atalanta have opened up a six point gap between them and rivals Milan in third.
At 7/2 and 8/1 respectively, Juventus and AC Milan are also considered to have an excellent chance of winning the title this season. Both clubs have faced their own issues on and off the field in recent years, but both have serious quality in their squads.
Milan were the early league leaders, having won seven of their opening eight matches, but two defeats to Juve and Udinese and a draw against Napoli in their last three matches has seen them slip down to third.
Juve, meanwhile, currently sit second, just two points behind leaders Inter, having not conceded in each of their six league matches (W5, D1) as they look to lift the title for the first time since 2019/20.
Who will finish in the Champions League Places?
Along with the aforementioned four teams that are expected to compete for the title this season, there are a handful of clubs that will feel they can challenge also – although a Champions League spot may be more of a realistic aim.
Jose Mourinho’s Roma are capable of greatness, but have lacked consistency up to this point. Back-to-back wins against Frosinone and Cagliari boosted their chances of a top four finish, after a less than impressive start that saw them lose three of their opening six matches.
However, despite losing to current leaders Inter, four of their five league wins this season have come in their last five matches as things start to look up for Jose.
Roma’s cross-town rivals Lazio will also fancy their chances of breaking into the top four this season despite losing star man Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, having showing signs of improvement after a less than impressive start. With just three wins and 10 points from their opening eight games, Lazio were struggling in the bottom half, but with nine points from a possible 12, their move up the table has begun.
Atalanta are considered to be the next best side ahead of Fiorentina, currently sitting in 5th, two points off the top four.
Who will be relegated from Serie A?
Hellas Verona were very lucky to escape relegation to Serie B last season, finishing outside of the bottom three on goal difference alone before beating Spezia 1-3 at the Mapei Stadium in the relegation tie-breaker. Unsurprisingly, they’re among the favourites to drop out of the division this time around, with five defeats from their last six dragging them back into the mix after two wins from their opening three games.
Newly promoted Frosinone started the season odds-on with most bookmakers to face the drop though alongside Lecce, who finished 16th in the table last time around. However, with 15 points from a possible 33, they are now out to 3/1.
Salernitana are the newest favourites to drop down to Serie B, sitting bottom of the table, as they only side yet to pick up a win so far this term.
