Serie A 2018-19

18 Aug 2018 - 26 May 2019

Founded in 1929, the Serie A is considered as one of the most tactical leagues in Europe. Consisting of 20 teams in the first division, the first four will qualify for the UEFA Champions League while the fifth placed team will get a direct entry into the UEFA Europa League.

Serie A - Record champions

Current Serie A holders Juventus are the most successful side in the competition’s history with 33 league titles. Additionally, they’ve been runners-up a record 21 times and could make it a seventh title in a row if they manage to beat closest rivals Napoli to the title.

The two Milan clubs, AC Milan and Inter Milan, are level on 18 titles each but have sort of faded in recent years. However, after receiving the backing from Chinese organisations, we could soon see the two giants of Italy challenging Juventus’ hegemony.

Genoa, Italy’s oldest professional club, have won the title nine times but haven’t been able to challenge since Juventus began their dominance.

Serie A - Rivalries

Derbies in the Serie A are pretty vociferous. Here are some of them:

Derby della Madonnina: Inter Milan taking on AC Milan is always a spectacle. No matter where the clubs are in the points table, this is one game even the neutrals look forward to simply because of how much passion and intensity there is on the football pitch. Having won a collective 36 league titles, there is plenty at stake even when they aren’t challenging for major honours.

Derby della Capitale: Not just a derby, a game akin to a damn war. One of the most heated up games, you just don’t want to be on the losing side if you’re a Roma or a Lazio player. The two sides were at their prominence during the turn of the century; Lazio won the 1999-2000 league campaign but Roma, boasting the likes of Cafu, Nakata, Totti and Batistuta. 

Derby della Mole: Before the Superga tragedy in 1949, Torino were on a roll and had won five titles in six years. After the aircraft tragedy, which killed the entire squad, they struggled but still managed to win the title after years of development in 1976. Juventus’ clash with their arch-rivals Tornio is the oldest derby in the league and the atmosphere is often supercharged.

Serie A - Present day scenario

Napoli have been able to challenge Juventus so far in the league but owing to their experience of been there and done it before, the Old Lady are favourites for the Scudetto once again.

The trio of AS Roma, Lazio and Inter Milan are vying for the rest of the two Champions League spots.

At the bottom of the table, Benevento are all but relegated.
