It’s not easy being Italian and the Premier League is no exception.
With the season kicking off on Sunday, it will be interesting to see how this season’s title race shakes out.
There are three teams vying for the title: Bologna, Udinese and Inter.
Bologna are the favourite, with Antonio Conte’s side having won the last four league titles.
However, they are still just four points behind the top three.
Udinese, on the other hand, have secured promotion to the Serie A and the Europa League this season.
That means that they have a big opportunity to grab the title, but also one of the toughest challenges.
Udinese have not won a league title since 2003, when they finished fourth in the Italian top flight.
Inter, meanwhile, have won four consecutive league titles from 2004 to 2016, but only managed to reach the Champions League semi-finals last season.
Inter’s defence is one of their best, as they are currently seventh in Serie A. Their goalkeeper is Andrea Pirlo, who has started every Serie A game this season, and they are ninth in the table with three wins and one draw.
The centre-back duo of Gianluigi Buffon and Simone Zaza will be the pair of midfielders of the future.
Buffon is expected to return to Inter next season, while Zaza, who was part of Inter’s impressive defence last season, is expected of Roma.
Both Zaza and Buffon are contracted to the club until 2021.
It’s a good sign for the future, as Inter is looking to sign another centre-half and it would be an upgrade from the current squad.
The two strikers in the team are Edinson Cavani and Marco Verratti.
They are currently the top-scoring attackers in Serie B, with both of them having scored 25 goals this season and have scored over 100 goals in their entire careers.
The other players who have a huge amount of goals this year are Andrea Barzagli and Gonzalo Higuain.
The Italian has scored over 50 goals in his career, and has scored in every Serie B match this season with Inter.
Barzaglia has also had a great season, scoring 19 goals in the league and leading Inter in goals with five.
The defender has a great career with Inter, scoring 17 goals in Serie D. Inter have been one of Juventus’s most consistent sides in Serie E, with a total of 12 points in 17 matches.
Gonzalo Higuaín is also a very good defender, having started all the Serie E matches this season as well as the final of the Champions league.
Inter currently sit third in Serie F, but Higuahini has a big chance of winning it.
The striker will be looking to extend his goal tally from this season to his best this season by scoring 25 goals.
That would make him one of Inter players who has scored more than 100 goals.
He has already scored in his last four matches, with Inter scoring 13 goals and only conceding one.
