Juventus have now won a barely believable nine Scudetti on the spin, but their most recent triumph proved much more difficult than the others - just a single point separating them from a resurgent Inter Milan. Could a whiff of change could be in the air for the 2020/21 season? Follow our guide below as we explain how to watch Serie A online and live stream every match from Italy's top league wherever you are right now.
Last term was too close for the liking of Juve's board, which responded by sacking Maurizio Sarri after just one season at the helm, installing club legend Andrea Pirlo as his replacement. Style and adulation he has in spades, but Pirlo is a complete managerial novice who once famously said that a job in coaching had no appeal. Could such a risky appointment prove the fatal error that finally sees the Coppa Campioni d'Italia escape from Turin? The early signs suggest it could, with the Old Lady already well behind rivals AC Milan and Inter in the Serie A standings.
The 2020/21 Serie A season got under way in September 2020 and runs until the end of May 2021. Full country-by-country TV and live streaming details are below, and with the help of a good VPN, you can ensure you have access to your preferred Serie A coverage no matter where you are in the world.
Antonio Conte, now Inter manager, is the man who led Juventus to the first of those nine league titles, and his side entered the season as favourites wrestle the trophy out of the Old Lady's fingers. Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martínez have struck up a wonderful partnership up front, and the Nerazzurri are much easier on the eye than Juventus, whose players too often appear starstruck by Cristiano Ronaldo.
Atalanta and Lazio weren't too far off the pace last season either. Lazio's Ciro Immobile did the seemingly impossible by outscoring Ronaldo in 2019/20 - by five, no less - and Atalanta's exploits in the last campaign, in which they came within a whisker of the Champions League semi-finals - a competition they'd never qualified for before, made them the sweethearts of Europe. Long may the fairy tale continue!
But just look at some of the names in the chasing pack. Roma, AC Milan and Napoli, each of which are loaded with more than enough talent to mount their own title challenges, which could make Serie A the most open and unpredictable top-flight league in Europe this season. Don't miss another second of the action - read on as we explain how to live stream Serie A and watch all action from the Italian top table of football.
