Who are favourites to win Serie A?
The dethroned Italian champions, Inter Milan, go into the 2022/23 season as favourites. Simone Inzaghi’s men could be strengthened with the addition of former Juventus playmaker Paulo Dybala and the returning Romelu Lukaku who previously booked 47 goals across 72 league appearances for them.
Juventus, who for a decade seemingly owned the championship, are expected to breath down the Nerazzurri‘s necks. In the season just gone the Old Lady finished a disappointing 16 points behind the winners. They are expected to bolster Max Allegri’s squad as Juve seek to return to the mountaintop. The holders Milan round off what should be an interesting three-way.
Now the hunted Milan know they cannot stand still and rest on their laurels. Heading into the new season they’ll be looking to fend off interest on their key personnel while subsequently bringing in talent who can help them fight on multiple fronts.

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 and will be ones to keep an eye on even if things are never always straightforward under Aurelio De Laurentiis’ ownership.
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, but can they find the right equilibrium between attack and defence to win their first-ever championship?
Someone that 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.
