Who are favourites to win Serie A?
The dethroned Serie A champions, Inter Milan, went into the 2022/23 season as favourites, though that has since changed. Simone Inzaghi strengthened with several key signings, most notably with the return of Romelu Lukaku — who previously bagged 47 goals across 72 league appearances for them — but the San Siro club have already lost three times, including to rivals Milan. Regardless, they still remain one of the favourites in this long season of many more twists and turns.
Juventus, who for a decade seemingly owned the championship, are expected to breath down the necks of those leading the charge despite their inauspicious start. In the season just gone the Old Lady finished a disappointing 16 points behind the winners. Like Inter, they have secured some top signings themselves, including Filip Kostic, Paul Pogba and Angel di Maria, but Max Allegri is struggling to find his rhythm with the club winning only two of their opening seven games.
Now the hunted, Milan know they cannot stand still and rest on their laurels. Already dropping points to Atalanta, Sassuolo and most recently Napoli in these early stages, Stefano Pioli knows that wins beget confidence so he will be looking to rediscover his tactical form after the international break.

Which teams are expected to put up a fight?
Since the 2012/13 season Napoli have achieved nine top-four placements, including four runners-up finishes. They were third best in Serie A last term but have kicked off this campaign like a house on fire, already sitting atop the table after seven games, and claiming the scalp of Milan in their unbeaten start.
If there’s one team you can rely on for goals it’s Atalanta, they scored three fewer goals than Milan last season, but finished seven places below them. La Dea have the firepower, and appear to have found the right equilibrium between attack and defence once again. Level on points with table-topping Napoli, Gian Piero Gasperini continues to garner the admiration of fans across the continent with his brand of free-flowing football.
Someone who knows what it takes is Jose Mourinho, his Roma side finished outside the Champions League places, but they were able to pick up silverware in the guise of Uefa’s Conference League – now his players have enjoyed the delicious taste of success, will they be able to build upon this foundation and return Italy’s top prize to Rome after a two decade absence?
As things currently stand, though, it’s fellow capital club Lazio who are best positioned to upset the apple cart. Maurizio Sarri has transposed his unique philosophy to the Eternal City, and Lazio are reaping the early rewards, currently fourth in the table behind table-strayers Udinese, who appear to have wandered off their mid-table course, currently infiltrating the top four and sitting a point behind the leaders.
