Another Serie A season is among us and it should be a year filled with excitement and drama.

With Italy winning Euro 2020, there is an opportunity for those involved in Italian football to capitalise on that euphoria and lure in more admirers.

Unfortunately, some stars such as Romelu Lukaku, Cristian Romero, and Gianluigi Donnarumma have left for foreign leagues, but there are still plenty of talented players ready to prove themselves as well as some fantastic coaches at some of Italy’s biggest clubs.

Here are Forza Italian Football’s five things to watch out for in the 2021/22 Serie A season.

4. Race for the Scudetto

Juventus dominated the 2010s and Inter finally broke their hegemony season but the clubs battling for European spots are quite evenly matched.

I Bianconeri had the most talented squad in Italy in the previous decade but they have weak points now and I Nerazzurri have not spent lavishly to replace their losses in the team.

AC Milan have added Olivier Giroud to their attack, but they lost Gianluigi Donnarumma in goal, Brahim Diaz is arguably still raw to be replacing Hakan Calhanoglu as the attacking midfielder, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic cannot be expected to remain fit for the majority of the season.

Atalanta have some form of continuity despite losing Cristian Romero and they have added Juan Musso and Merih Demiral to their squad whereas Roma and Lazio are starting afresh.

Napoli have hired Luciano Spalletti as coach and he will work with a squad that is tailor-made for his 4-2-3-1 formation as well as an exciting attack.

These seven clubs should secure European football for 2022/23 but they might also consider posing a challenge at the top of the table if they have the momentum and the belief.
