The bookmakers say seven groups have a practical case for calling themselves contenders this season, with Juventus standing above the remaining:

Juventus reset: Regardless of the income shortfalls imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic, Juventus efficiently added budding Italian nationwide crew star Manuel Locatelli on a artistic deal, and the Bianconeri additionally locked up Brazilian ahead Kaio Jorge on a lower-cost switch payment. With famous person Cristiano Ronaldo (beneath) sticking round and Paulo Dybala desperate to relaunch his profession, this would be the normal formidable Juventus on all fronts. Outdoors Serie A, the membership’s massive dream will as soon as once more be successful the UEFA Champions League after Allegri took it to 2 finals in three seasons (2015 and 2017), arising quick on each events.

Milan golf equipment chasing the Outdated Girl: Inter Milan and AC Milan are anticipated to be the primary challengers to Juventus within the title race. Their squads are stacked. Regardless of its distinguished personnel departures, Inter added three strong starting-caliber gamers to the roster (Denzel Dumfries, Edin Dzeko and Hakan Calhanoglu), as did AC Milan, which may have a brand new man at goalkeeper to succeed Italian nationwide crew keeper Gigi Donnarumma: Frenchman Mike Maignan. If not the title, Champions League qualification is the minimal expectation for each Milan sides.

Can Atalanta’s mannequin maintain producing outcomes? The Bergamo membership has continued to shock with three straight third-place finishes in Serie A. The method is simple: Unload prized belongings after which reinvest the money into scouting and participant growth for the following wave of elite gamers. It occurred once more over the summer season with Tottenham claiming its beginning goalkeeper (Pierluigi Gollini) and defender (Cristian Romero). If the replacements show to be as much as par, anticipate Atalanta to as soon as once more hover in these high three spots.

Rome all fired up: Each Rome golf equipment, AS Roma and Lazio, have new managers who at the moment are the face of their respective organizations. Jose Mourinho (Roma, beneath) and Maurizio Sarri (Lazio) land in Rome with spectacular resumes, fiery personalities and really totally different manufacturers of soccer. Whether or not or not both can elevate his membership to compete with Juventus from the beginning, the measuring stick is certain to be the intracity rival in Yr 1.

Be careful for Napoli: Nobody’s speaking concerning the Neapolitan membership, which has quietly gone about making ready this summer season with little switch exercise of word. Essentially the most distinguished transfer was the hiring of supervisor Luciano Spalletti, who returns to the teaching ranks after two years away.
