The 2018–2019 Serie A season will get underway on 19th August with Juventus an overwhelming favourite to make it eight league titles in a row. Whilst they may have lost Gigi Buffon in goal, they have brought in quality reinforcements all over the pitch, from Emre Can and Joao Cancelo in midfield, to Mattia Caldara and Leonardo Spinazzorla in defence.
Douglas Costa’s loan from Bayern Munich has been converted into a permanent deal whilst, of course, there is the marquee signing of Cristiano Ronaldo, whose €100 million arrival from Real Madrid has made the best attack in the league even more potent.
Inter Milan scraped into fourth place in May, but can hope to finish higher this season.
Radja Nainggolan‘s arrival from Roma will add drive to their midfield, whilst Stefan de Vrij and Kwadwo Asamoah will bolster their defence. Up front Mauro Icardi should be fresh after being left out of the Argentine World Cup squad, whilst one man who did perform well in Russia, Croat Ivan Perisic, could make a big contribution if Inter can hang on to him.
Napoli finished runners-up last time, pushing Juventus all the way, but it may be hard for them to match that feat again. Manager Maurizio Sarri has gone to Chelsea, but they have a more than adequate replacement in Carlo Ancelotti.
One problem last campaign for Napoli was the lack of depth in their squad, and with Jorginho following Sarri to Chelsea, they may find themselves stretched if they have a significant run or injuries or suspensions.

Benevento v Bologna betting tips:
Match to end in a draw
Roma have been hit by the loss of goalkeeper Alisson Becker, sold to Liverpool, considered last season to be the best player in any position in Serie A. Nainggolan has left for Inter, and whilst there was excitement that they were about to sign the highly rated Bordeaux Winger Malcom, Barcelona snatched him away at the last minute.
Justin Kluivert, son of legendary Dutch international Patrick, is an exciting signing, but he is really one for the future.
Lazio blew their chances of Champions League football in the last round of matches in May, and may find it hard to get in to the top four again. Stefan de Vrij has moved to Inter, whilst Felipe Anderson has been sold to West Ham, and, barring miracles, Sergei Milinkovic-Savic will be gone by the time the transfer window closes.
However, Luis Alberto and Ciro Immobile provide enough of a goal threat to keep the Roman side at the right end of the table.
AC Milan are unpredictable. Last season they struggled, despite bringing in the likes of Leonardo Bonucci, but they have added experience in the form of goalkeeper Pepe Raina and defender Ivan Strinic, arriving on free transfers.
Off the field financial issues continue to dog the club, but their European ban has been lifted, so perhaps a period of stability promises.
Of the other teams, Atalanta and Fiorentina are the most likely candidates for Europa League places at the end of the season, with both clubs seemingly on an upward trajectory.
At the other end of the table, Frosinone and Empoli, promoted from Serie B, must be considered favourites for an immediate return. Also Chievo can be expected to be in the relegation mix again, having only reached safety last time round with a late burst.
And then there is Parma, back in Serie A, after a meteoric rise back to the big time, scarcely three years fter being declared bankrupt.
However, they already start the season with a five point deduction, in the wake of a match fixing scandal which saw one of their players, Emanuele Calaio, send a text message to two team members of an opponent in their promotion run-in, asking them for “reduced effort”. Calaio has subsequently been banned from football for two years.
