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, but last year it was AC Milan who triumphed for the first time in a decade. This put them level with rivals Inter Milan on 19 titles each. Inter did manage to win the cup, however, thanks to a hugely entertaining 4-2 win over Juventus in the final. The Serie A all-time top scorer is Silvio Piola with 274 goals.
