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. Their run of nine consecutive titles was brought to an end last year by Antonio Conte’s Inter Milan, spearheaded by an inspired Romelu Lukaku.

The Old Lady did manage to win the cup, however, although their opening goal in a 2-1 victory over a flat Atalanta in the final was controversial, to say the least.

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