Serie A is a very entertaining and exciting domestic league, if you are not challenging for the title. The relegation battle, fight for the Europa League spots and the contest to finish in the Champions League places are hugely enthralling. However, when it comes to the Scudetto, it has pretty much been a one-horse race.
Juventus have won Serie A for the past eight seasons, as the Bianconeri have established themselves as the team to beat in Italy. Not only do Juve play the best football in the country, but they also dominate matches and pretty much steamroll every team that stand in their way. This season, at one stage, it looked like Napoli were going to give them a run for their money, but Juventus ended up winning the championship by 11 points.
A lot could happen this summer during the transfer window, but at this point in time, it is hard to see anyone aside from Juventus winning the Serie A title during the 2019-20 campaign. The Turin giants have the best squad in Serie A, and in Cristiano Ronaldo, they have one of the greatest ever goalscorers. Then, there are midfielders Miralem Pjanic and Sami Khedira, forward Paulo Dybala as well as defenders Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci. There is no doubt that Juventus will be favourites for the Serie A betting outright markets for the upcoming season
There is one club who will be determined to put an end to Juventus’s winning run who also have the resources and personnel to challenge them, and that is Inter Milan. While Juventus are still looking for a new manager following the departure of Massimiliano Allegri, Inter have appointed Antonio Conte as their boss. It was Conte who started the Bianconeri’s total domination of Italian football, and perhaps it will be Conte who will put an end to it.
Inter have not been great in recent years, but the 2010 Champions League winners are back in Europe’s premier club competition after finishing fourth in Serie A this season. Conte would not have taken charge of Inter had he not been given assurances of the club’s transfer budget and had they not had grand plans for the future. Inter’s appointment of Conte as their manager suggests that the Milanese club mean business. Players such as Mauro Icardi, Milan Skriniar, Radja Nainggolan and Ivan Perisic are superb footballers, and if Inter are able to bolster their squad this summer, then there could be a genuine title challenge on.
Elsewhere, Napoli will continue to challenge for the title, although one suspects that the Neapolitan club will be happy to finish in the top four yet again. In recent years, following the slide down the table of Inter Milan and AC Milan, it is Napoli who have taken upon themselves to give a fight to Juventus, but they always seem to fall short, and next season is unlikely to be any different.
