Punters are in for a treat this weekend as Serie A kicks off in Italy, with Bet365 announcing their live stream service is available for customers. The race for the title in Italy could be one of the most fascinating for many years with three teams – AC Milan, Juventus and Inter Milan – all of the opinion that they are capable of being the team to beat
Last year, it was Juventus that conquered all. They were unbeaten throughout the entire league campaign and were particularly impressive in the latter stages of the season. They held their nerve when it counted and will be after more of the same in the 2012/2013 season.
However, not all is well at Juventus. The manager that guided them to all the success last season, Antonio Conte, has been banned for ten months for his involvements in a match fixing scandal.

It is now up to Massimo Carrera to guide the team during their title defence and there is no doubt that a good start is needed. The club needs a lift and a couple of wins early on would be extremely positive for them.
Should Juventus start slowly under their new boss, it is AC Milan that will be looking to pounce. They paid the price for some stuttering form in the final third of the season last year, missing out on the title relatively comfortably in the end.
This summer has seen a dramatic turnaround in players, with Clarence Seedorf and Zlatan Ibrahimovic amongst a long list of players to leave the club. It is therefore the start of a new era at the San Siro and one they want to kick-off with a Serie A title win.
The team sharing their ground have similar ambitions though. Inter Milan were well below par last season, but this campaign they want to be back in the race for the title. With some new faces in the squad, including Rodrigo Palacio, they are hoping for a very successful few months.
Overall, Juventus, AC Milan and Inter are definitely the leading contenders for the Serie A title. However, the likes of Roma and Napoli will aim to be in the mix, certainly in the opening few weeks of the season.
The new Serie A campaign gets underway later this month.
