Record-breakers Juventus heavy favorites in Serie A odds to do it again
Will 2019-20 finally be the season in which someone is able to bring Juventus’ long run of Italian league titles to an end? writes Nick Dorrington.
Juventus have won Serie A in each of the last eight seasons. That is the longest winning streak in the history of Italian football. If they were to triumph again this time, they would have double the number of league titles of the next closest team, AC Milan. The bookmakers have them strong favorites in the Serie A odds to do it.
After a couple of close title races (particularly in 2017-18), Juventus had things pretty easy last season. They assumed the leadership on the second match day and never lost it thereafter, eventually finishing 11 points clear of Napoli in second. Massimiliano Allegri signed off as head coach with his fifth consecutive league title.
Former Chelsea and Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri is the new man in the Juventus dugout, and it will be interesting to see how the squad adapt to his mechanised form of possession-based, attacking football. The club were very active in the summer transfer market and probably still have the best squad in Italy, but their adaptation to a new style of football might just give another team a chance of besting them.
Napoli have finished second in each of the last two and three of the last four seasons. With a settled squad, they are likely to be one of the most viable challengers to Juventus. It is, though, intriguing to see that Inter Milan, who finished a further 10 points back from Napoli last season and 21 behind Juventus, are more or less level with Napoli on the pre-season betting markets.
That is partly because Inter have invested heavily in their squad, with an over-€100 million net spend on new arrivals. Much of that went on former Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku, but they have also reenergised other areas of the squad. It is partly because their new coach Antonio Conte has won league titles in both Italy and England, and is uniquely driven to break the run of Juventus dominance he himself started back in 2012.
Whether everything comes together quickly enough for Inter to provide a strong challenge remains to be seen but Conte does have form. His Chelsea side won the Premier League title in his first year at the helm.
Atalanta actually finished a place ahead of Inter last season, coming home third for the best finish in the club’s history. Gian Piero Gasperini has done an outstanding job there, and they have largely survived the transfer window without being weakened. The joint demands of league and Champions League football mean they are unlikely to take another step forward, although they should remain in top-four contention.
AC Milan and Roma both missed out on Champions League qualification last season, and both have new coaches for the new campaign. On the back of leading Sampdoria to a ninth-place finish, Marco Giampaolo is tasked with returning AC Milan to European’s primary competition following a six-year absence. Roma have the ex-Shakhtar Donetsk coach Paulo Fonseca on their bench, and as ever, there has been plenty of transfer turnover there.
Those two are the most likely to be challenging for a top-four finish, but last season’s Coppa Italia winners Lazio have a solid chance of getting themselves in that mix, while Torino only finished six points off fourth last season and might just be able to eek out a few more points to also do so. They can be expected to make a quick start after beginning their season earlier than most due to their participation in the Europa League qualifying rounds.
Fiorentina will almost certainly improve on their 16th place finish last year. They are highly likely to get into the top 10 and might even make the top eight. They look a bit overrated by the main UK bookmakers in terms of pushing up even further than that.
There is a middle block of teams who are probably not quite good enough to challenge for European qualification but should also be safe from relegation worries. Sampdoria, Bologna (who actually spent a fair amount of money over the summer) and Sassuolo are definitely in that group. Cagliari, Genoa, SPAL and Udinese would certainly like to be.
Two of three promoted teams went down last season, while Parma’s underlying statistics were bad enough to suggest they were fairly fortunate to avoid an immediate demotion. That makes them among the favourites in the Serie A relegation odds this time around, alongside the newly ascended Brescia, Hellas Verona and Lecce. Of the trio, Brescia, the Serie B champions, look the best-equipped to survive.
