The 2022-23 Serie A season on Paramount+ is underway and will run until May as we expect a heated race for the Scudetto. AC Milan are the reigning champions after their incredible run to the title last season, while Inter de Milan and juventus they have high hopes of joining the race. RomeUnder legendary coach José Mourinho, they hope their off-season additions will be enough to get them into the conversation as well. Naples they have started strongly under the impressive play of young Georgian striker Khvicha Kvaratskhelia. The raised sides are Lecce, cremonese and Monzaand all aim to avoid the fate of Cagliari, genoa and Venice, who were relegated last season. You can watch all the action, including select games in Italian, live on Paramount+ throughout the season.

Here’s what you need to know about this week’s action:


1. The game of the weekend
Lazio host Juventus on Saturday in what could turn out to be a crucial clash for the Champions League race, as the Bianconeri are now fully in the running despite their 15-point drop. Massimiliano Allegri’s team have won three games and are currently just six points behind Inter, who are fourth in the table. Lazio, on the other hand, is now second in the league with a four-point margin over AC Milan, exceeding high expectations.

2. The last chance
Verona’s home clash against Sassuolo is most likely one of their last chances to avoid relegation, considering Spezia will play away against Fiorentina and have a six-point lead. On the other hand, it is almost certain that both Sampdoria and Cremonese will go down and play next season in the Second Division. The pressure is great.

3. Inzaghi needs a win
After losing the last three games against Spezia, Juventus and Fiorentina, Simone Inzaghi needs a reaction from his team that is currently competing for the top four. The former Lazio manager’s future is now seriously in jeopardy at Inter, despite the fact that he will play in the UEFA Champions League quarter-final against Benfica next week. Next month he will decide his future, which now will probably be somewhere else.
