2022-23 Italy’s Serie A predictions overview
Ready for some top Italian football tips for betting? Let’s roll! AC Milan won the Serie A title last season, withholding Juventus from resuming their previous nine-year reign as Italian champions for the second season in a row. The 2022-23 Serie A season is contested among 20 teams: the team with the most points at the end of the season wins the league.
Italian Serie A teams that finish in the top 4 automatically qualify for the next season’s UEFA Champions League. The fifth-placed team, alongside the winner of the Coppa Italia at the end of the season, qualifies for the UEFA Europa League. In cases in which the winner of the Coppa Italia finishes in the top 5, the sixth-placed team gets the spot in the Europa League. Thus, the sixth or seventh team qualifies for the newly formed UEFA Conference League. The bottom three teams are relegated to Serie B at the end of the Series A season.
On Takebet Nigeria, you will find Italian Serie A predictions on top games involving Juventus, Inter Milan, AC Milan, Napoli, Atalanta, Roma, and Lazio against each other. Also, we provide betting tips on Serie A decisive games which directly influence the title challenge or the top 4 finish.
Complete list of teams participating in the 2022-23 Serie A:
- Inter Milan
- AC Milan
- AS Roma
- Hellas Verona
Juventus failed to win the Serie A title for the second time in the 2021-22 season after finishing fourth again. The Old Lady had 65 points only, scoring 53 goals and conceding 30 during last season’s league campaign. This result was even worse than a year before, but they conceded the least number of goals. The team is often present in our Italian football betting tips.
Juventus appointed their former manager, Massimiliano Allegri, their head coach a year ago. Allegri led Juventus to two Champions League finals before, as well as five consecutive Serie A wins and four Coppa Italia crowns. He is staying in charge for the 2022-23 Serie A.
The Old Lady will find it hard to win the title easily, as they did for nine years before Inter ended their dominance and the triumph of AC Milan followed. However, many Italian teams are now well-equipped and look very balanced, so this might be an exciting title challenge. However, their defence is excellent, while Dusan Vlahovic might prove key as he has stepped into the place of Cristiano Ronaldo and will see to scoring loads of goals.
Vlahovic moved from Fiorentina, where he bagged 44 league goals in 98 games. He is one of the best Serie A strikers and is the favourite to score the most.
Federico Chiesa is one of the best youngsters in football, as he showed exceptional quality in the Euro 2020. The Italian player was crucial in the country’s run to win the European Championship, as he scored two goals, including an extra-time goal in their 2-1 victory over Austria. Unfortunately, Chiesa got a severe injury in January 2022 and got seven months to recover, so he might be ready to join the roster again in the autumn of 2022.
Other key players of Juventus apart from Dusan Vlahovic and Federico Chiesa:
- Juan Cuadrado
- Leonardo Bonucci
- Manuel Locatelli
- Alex Sandro
Inter finished the 2021-22 Serie A second after winning it a year before. They got 84 points, just two short of the new champions AC Milan, and scored the most league goals (84) while conceding the fourth-least (32). We often feature this team in Italian football predictions.
Former Lazio manager, Simone Inzaghi, stays as Inter Milan’s head coach for another season.
Lautaro Martinez was crucial to the club’s impressive display in the league yet again. The Argentine scored 25 goals, including 21 in the league last season, the most for the team in both cases.
Edin Dzeko, who joined Inter Milan on a free transfer a year ago, proved crucial. He followed with 17 goals in 49 appearances total for the team, with 13 league goals. Dzeko had a similar impact to the departed Lukaku, and he will try to follow in his footsteps in the 2022-23 Serie A.
Other key players of Inter Milan apart from Lautaro Martinez and Edin Dzeko:
- Nicolo Barella
- Hakan Calhanoglu
- Marcelo Brozovic
- Alessandro Bastoni
- Samir Handanovic
Roma finished sixth in the 2021-22 Serie A table, as they qualified for the UEFA Europa League. Roma got 63 points, scored 59 and conceded 43 goals.
Jose Mourinho stays at the helm of Roma for the 2022-23 Serie A.
Tammy Abraham joined the team in 2021 and has 17 goals in 38 league appearances. He is the most valued player on the roster, according to Transfermarkt, and will be crucial in attack as one of the currently prominent Serie A forwards.
Paulo Dybala has moved to Roma from Juventus for the new season and is vital. The Argentine scored 82 league goals in 210 games for his former club.
Other key players of Roma apart from Tammy Abraham and Paulo Dybala:
- Lorenzo Pellegrini
- Stephan El Shaarawy
- Bryan Cristante
- Rui Patricio
Milan just had their two best seasons in years. They won the 2021-22 Serie A by two points, with then-reigning champions Inter Milan trailing second. Rossoneri got 86 points, scored 69 and conceded 31 goals. They were lucky to win more points, while Inter’s goal difference was much more significant (+52). Italy league predictions on Takebet Nigeria often feature this club.
Rafael Leao is currently the most valued player of AC Milan. This winger has 23 goals in 96 league appearances and is invaluable for the club on the pitch.
Other key players of AC Milan apart from Rafael Leao:
- Zlatan Ibrahimovic
- Theo Hernandez
- Ante Rebic
- Simon Kjaer
- Brahim Diaz
Napoli qualified for the UEFA Champions League after finishing third in the league, an improvement compared to the previous season. Gli Azzurri had 79 points, scoring 74 goals and conceding 31, the joint second-least alongside Inter. Their defence got much better season-to-season.
Luciano Spalletti is the head coach of Napoli for the 2022-23 Serie A.
Napoli’s now-former captain, Lorenzo Insigne, has left the club for Toronto FC. He was the most crucial player in the squad and will be missed. The Napoli striker was key in Italy’s run for the European Championship, as he scored two goals from 0.59 xG. Insigne is one of the highest goalscorers in Napoli’s history, with 96 goals in 337 appearances. The Italian striker scored 11 league goals in 32 matches in the 2021-22 Serie A season while creating many chances.
Victor Osimhen is now the top powerhouse of Napoli in the offence as well as the most pricy player of the squad. The Nigerian international came in 2020 and has had 25 goals in 52 league appearances. Osimhen is one of the candidates for the 2022-23 Serie A Capocannoniere.
Other key players of Napoli apart from Victor Osimhen:
- Hirving Lozano
- Giovanni Di Lorenzo
- Piotr Zielinski
- Fabian Ruiz
- Diego Demme

There are four teams with chances over 10% to win the 2022-23 Serie A. The 2020-21 champions, Inter Milan, are the top favourites — and Juventus follow.

The Capocannoniere is awarded to the highest goalscorer of each season in Italian Serie A. Gunnar Nordahl won the most Capocannoniere (5) during his time in AC Milan. On the other hand, Ciro Immobile has won the Capocannoniere four times — in the 2013-14, 2017-18, 2018-19 and 2021-22 seasons. Immobile will be looking to get his fifth one to become the player with the joint most Capocannoniere, but he has at least two great rivals — Dusan Vlahovic and Romelu Lukaku.
Serie A 2022-23 Capocannoniere winner betting odds:
- Dusan Vlahovic (Juventus) — 4.00 (+300 American; 3/1 Fractional)

How experts analyse Italian Serie A matches for predictions
The experts of Takebet Nigeria are lovers of the beautiful game called football: being betting analysts, they can perform an in-depth examination of teams and players before each match. The team uses betting odds and statistics for Italy’s Serie A predictions in the first place. Our deep research on chances and betting options allows us to find the most valuable odds and understand any event’s probability.
Serie A teams are tactical in their approach, focusing on every game aspect. Most of the squads like to play low blocks, as the Serie A is known to have the best defenders over the years. They sit deep with a very compact shape and hit fast on the break at any opportunity. Inter Milan in the 2020-21 season is a perfect example.
Other Italian teams sometimes love to have the ball and make quick passes, such as Napoli under Maurizio Sarri. They love to have the ball utilising a regista (playmaker) and making quick and fast passes to break down teams, looking for pockets of space.
Some of the statistics we use in predicting Serie A:
- Big chances
- Expected goals
- Shots on/off target and conceded
- Ball possession (%)
These statistics are used alongside head-to-head, team form, betting trends and the latest Serie A news in our picks. All this helps our experts choose bets worth making.
