New absolute record of the Italian football
During the whole last season two main challengers for new Scudetto were Juventus and Napoli. And, during certain periods of the tournament the Neapolitan club was very close to its long-cherished goal. We will remind you that Azzurri, by analogy with Liverpool, England can’t win a champion title for 28 years, since 1990.
Alas! And this time much bigger experience of champion victories that Juventus has, became decisive in this fascinating opposition of the North and the South. As a result Massimiliano Allegri’s team was ahead of the only rival by four points and seventh time in a row has won a champion title: Juventus – 95, Napoli – 91, Roma – 77, Inter – 72, Lazio – 72…
So the quintet of the best teams of last season is as follow. By one more seventh prize of Scudetto, Bianconeri with one point have improved the former record. From now seven champion titles in a row (2012-2018) are a new record of Calcio.
Bianconeri ‘s staff changes
Of course, the main signing of the champion became the signing of one of the best football players of modern age – Cristiano Ronaldo. Initially Allegri was planning to build the game using classical scheme4-3-3 where two Argentineans Gonzalo Higuaín and Paulo Dybala had to become the partners of the Portuguese forward.
However Lionel Messi’s partner in the line of the attack in the national team has decided to become the player of Milan. And without Gonzalo Higuaín Juventus has lost the main center forward. Paulo Dybala doesn’t suit to this role as on the level of the game he reminds Alessandro Del Piero, that is, classical ten (fantasist) who is playing under forwards.
There is only Mario Mandžukić left who earlier, in combination with Gonzalo Higuaín was playing on the left wing. But, now this position was taken by Cristiano therefore if frames of the scheme 4-3-3 Ronaldo will be playing on the left, Dybala – on the right, and Mandžukić in attack.
Bookmaker coefficients on the match Chievo vs. Juventus
The opening match of the new season of Serie A will be held in Verona where the thirteenth team Chievo will be the closest opponent of the champion. The previous meeting of current rivals on Marc Antonio Bentegodi Stadium has ended with the score – 0:2 (Khedira, Higuaín). And now the favorite of the new meeting is Juventus: Chievo – 12.00, Juventus – 1.25.
It is very important for the team of Allegri to begin a new Calcio tournament with a confident victory. At the same time the status of a home or guest game has no basic value for the champion. We present to your attention a bet on the bright favorite.
