We do not need all the suspense, do we? The League is the Serie A.
Juventus has a monopoly in this League. Since the 2011-2012 season, Juventus has been the winner of the Serie A. That was 9 seasons ago. Since then, only Napoli have tried to push them to the wire but the Juventus hegemony could not be defeated- credit to Maurizio Sarri for that push while with Napoli.
Now, Maurizio Sarri is with Juventus and the competition has come alive again. This is partly due to him still finding his feet with the Old Lady and the arrival and resurgence of Inter Milan under Antonio Conte. All this is good but the emergence of less fancied teams like Lazio under Simone Inzaghi who are six points behind the joint leaders (and the only team to have beaten Juventus this season), albeit with a game in hand and the form of Ciro Immobile, arguably the most in form striker in Europe (yeah, we know that there is Lewandowski please) is making the League all the more fun and unpredictable.
To a lesser – competitive – extent, there are also teams like A.S. Roma and Atalanta managed by Paulo Fonseca and Gian Piero Gasperini respectively who are very entertaining, score loads of goals and ultimately have been fairly consistent this season.
What more could you ask for in a League that has arguably the best footballer of all time in Ronaldo, the highest goal-scorer in Europe in Ciro Immobile, one of the best Coaches in Europe in Antonio Conte. Oh, and there is now Zlatan Ibrahimovic? – there are no superlatives for Zlatan. Not a lot more, I presume.
