Juventus have won six consecutive Serie A titles and, with the new season starting on 11th August, it is hard to see anybody but them lifting the trophy again.
Last year’s double winners boast a near impregnable defence, a strong dual Argentine strike force of Paul Dybala and Gonzano Higuain, and a skilled tactical manager in Massimiliano Allegri.
Whilst two of last season’s back four, Dani Alves and Leonardo Bonucci, have been sold, Juventus have brought in replacements in all key positions and boosted their attacking options with the capture of players like Douglas Costa and Frederic Bernardeschi.

They also still have the evergreen Gianluigi Buffon in goal, who, possibly playing his last season, will want, as captain, to go out with the title.
Roma finished second last season and can expect to compete strongly again. They have a new manager in Eusebio Di Francesco, and despite some high profile departures to the Premier League – Salah to Liverpool and Rüdiger to Chelsea – have strengthened the team in all areas.
This season will be the first since the retirement of iconic Roma captain, Francesco Totti, and after the soap opera associated with his retirement, it will be a relief for the team just to focus on football this season.
Napoli finished just one point behind Roma last season and will be expected to feature strongly again. There have been no significant departures and the addition of some fresh faces will strengthen the overall depth and balance of their squad.
However, for neutral observers, the performance of the two Milan clubs may be the most interesting. Both AC and Inter Milan dominated Italian and European football at various times in the past thirty years, but they fell by the wayside, struggling with debt, an under investment in playing staff, poor infrastructure, and a high turnover of players and coaching staff. In the past few months, that has changed.
Now with each club under Chinese ownership there are ambitious plans to restore both teams to their former glory. Fans can expect a significant investment from both teams in players and coaches, and a better showing on the pitch this time round – although this season might be too early for either to challenge for the Scudetto.
Elsewhere, Napoli and Atlanta may challenge for European football again, whilst the relegation battle can be expected to feature newcomers SPAL, Hellas Verona and Benevento, as well as Crotone.
