Luciano Spalletti’s Napoli are going great guns and have been making the early running alongside AC Milan at the top of the table, but their great start has put their stars in the shop window, with many fans concerned that key men Kalidou Koulibaly and Lorenzo Insigne could be snapped up.

Still defying the ageing process, Zlatan Ibrahimovic continues to provide the thrust of AC Milan’s attacking threat, with the Rossoneri emerging as genuine title challenge this term.

The financial problems brought on in part by the Covid-19 pandemic that many predicted would have an impact on a number of Serie A teams this season appears to be playing out, with the now Ronaldo-less Juventus the biggest of the big guns struggling. Having made a poor start to the season, Max Allegri’s side look in real danger of missing out on European action next season.

Inter Milan have also experienced similar financial turbulence, however boss Simone Inzaghi appears to have weathered the storm and the blow of losing key players including Romelu Lukaku and Achraf Hakimi by keeping Internazionale apace with the early front runners.

Meanwhile, fans of Jose Mourinho-led drama haven’t been left disappointed. The well-travelled Portuguese boss, never seemingly a far away from a flare up with the media or opposition fans since taking over at AS Roma, is also making the Stadio Olimpico a fortress.

It’s shaping up to be a season to remember, so read on as we explain how to live stream Serie A and watch all the action from the Italian top table of football.

How to watch Serie A football from outside your country

If you're away from home and can't bear to miss out on this season's Serie A action, don't worry. While you may initially encounter a problem watching your usual domestic live stream coverage in the form of geo-blocking, there's an easy solution to this common annoyance. 

It's called a VPN and it's a clever bit of software that relocates your device back to your country of origin - thereby allowing you to regain access to the services you normally use (and almost certainly pay for) back home.

2021/22 Serie A odds

With so much upheaval at Inter, it shouldn't be a major shock to find the Ronaldo-led Juve leading the way for odd on winning the 21/22 title in Italy, with bookies currently offering around 11/10 for the Old Lady to be victorious come the end of May.

Despite their financial turmoil, punters are still backing new boss Simone Inzaghi to help deliver a great season for Inter, with odds currently of 5/2 for them to claim this season's scudetto.

Atalanta have been the league's surprise package for the last few season, and they're being well backed to go one step further this season and claim their first ever Serie A title, with odds hovering around 8/1, ahead of the now Olivier Giroud-led AC Milan who come in at 10/1.

What else can I use a VPN for other than watching Serie A live streams?

Virtual Private Network software is pretty versatile tech. As well as enabling you towatch sport and TV from other locales, their encrypted nature means that the information you exchange on a daily basis online is kept safely away from prying eyes. And streaming VPNs also help to get around website blocking in certain offices, schools and even countries.

But even if you're away from your home coverage, you can always use a VPN to dial back into your country that does have a stream. A VPN is perfect for this as it allows you to change your IP address so you appear to be in a completely different location. We've tested hundreds of VPNs and can recommend these as the currently available:
