HISTORY AND FORMAT

Serie A, the Italian top flight, kicked off in 1929. The league is known for its emphasis on tactics and defensive rigour with matches played at a slower pace than the other top divisions in Europe. Serie A teams enjoy a winter break and also contest the Coppa Italia.

Twenty sides fight it out each year to lift the scudetto. The top four qualify automatically for the Champions League, whilst the bottom three are relegated to Serie B.

Juventus of Turin are the most decorated side with 36 league victories, and their recent domination has produced nine consecutive Serie A titles. They limped over the line with a huge helping hand from referees last season; their closest challengers were Inter, Atalanta and Lazio.

Napoli took the Coppa Italia, which went some way to making up for a fairly disappointing season in the league.

The Serie A all-time top scorer is Silvio Piola with 274 goals.
