For the first time since 2011/12, AC Milan are entering a Serie A season as defending champions, ending their 11-year wait for a Scudetto in May.
The 2022/23 campaign is scheduled to start on August 13, slightly earlier than it would usually due to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. But that will make no difference to the excitement the league brings.
After ending their title drought, Milan will now be looking to retain the Scudetto for the first time since 1993/94 when they won the league for the third time in a row. Can they do it?
Who will win the Serie A title?
As mentioned, Milan haven’t had much luck defending their title in Serie A and their rivals will be looking to benefit from that. Since winning three in a row between 1992 and 1994, Milan have won the title on four different occasions (not including 2021/22), with Juventus, Lazio and Inter Milan all taking their crown from them the very next season. The only anomaly is the 2004/05 campaign, which Juventus did win only to have the title stripped from them.
Inter Milan will want to be Milan’s biggest rivals for the title this season having finished just two points behind the Rossoneri. Simone Inzaghi’s side haven’t wasted any time in the transfer market either, signing seven new players including a returning Romelu Lukaku on loan from Chelsea.
And it’s Inter who are the early favourites to win the title, ahead of Juventus and AC Milan. Juventus may have finished fourth last season, surviving a fight for Champions League qualification, but the Bianconeri will always be backed to challenge for the title and they have added to their squad this summer with the free signings of Juventus and Angel Di Maria.

Who will finish in the Serie A top four?
Outside of the top three, Napoli once again found themselves in the Champions League spots last season and they’ll be among the favourites to do so again this year.
However, you cannot count out the likes of Lazio, Roma and Fiorentina, all of whom weren’t too far out from fourth-placed Juventus last season. Roma, in particular, will be buoyed by the fact that they are entering Jose Mourinho’s second season as manager, with the Portuguese manager usually having a decent record.
But let’s not forget Atalanta either, who surely cannot have a season as bad as they did in 2021/22 when they finished eighth.
Who will be relegated from Serie A?
Look, someone’s got to be relegated. That’s what makes the European leagues so great, the jeopardy at the bottom of the table, when other divisions offer no drama or pathways in promotion and relegation. Italy is also one of the top European leagues that have three teams drop straight into the division below with the second chance of a play-off.
Cagliari, Genoa and Venezia were the unfortunate trio to say goodbye to Serie A this summer, ending six, 15 and one-year stays respectively. They have been replaced in the top flight by Lecce, Cremonese and Monza – the latter reaching Serie A for the first time in the club’s history.
A Serie A rule change
Unlike the Premier League, when two teams are tied on points in Serie A they are separated by the head-to-head records in the two matches played across the campaign. And while that will remain the case, there will be a different tiebreaker for two instances.
If the first and second placed sides are level on points at the end of the season, they will now face each other in a play-off match held at a neutral site to determine who wins the title. Should the game be level after 90 minutes, it will go straight to penalties, with no extra-time. The same tiebreaker play-off with occur if teams in 17th and 18th are level on points, with the winner staying up and the loser relegated.

Still the most popular market when it comes to match betting is Win-Draw-Win. It’s always worth checking the form before placing your win-draw-win bet – just because a team is sitting pretty towards the top of the table in the later stages of the season, it doesn’t mean that they haven’t been in dreadful form and haven’t lost their last five games and vice versa, teams towards the bottom can often be in better form than you may imagine based on their league position.
Here are some of the markets we offer tips on across all competitions:
