Serie A on Paramount+: Schedule, stories and everything you need to know in the race for the Scudetto

The 2022-23 Serie A season on Paramount+ is underway and will run until May as we anticipate a heated race for the Scudetto. Milan are the reigning champions after their incredible run to the title last season while Inter Milan and Juventus they have high hopes of participating in the race. Romaunder legendary manager Jose Mourinho, hopefully their off-season additions will be enough to put them in the conversation too. Naples started strongly under the impressive play of young Georgian striker Khvicha Kvaratskhelia. Forward sides are Leche, Cremonese and Monzaand all aim to avoid his fate Cagliari, Genoa and Venice, who were all relegated last season. You can catch all the action, including select games in Italian, live on Paramount+ all season long.

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


1. Can anyone stop Napoli?
Red-hot Napoli sit two points clear in Serie A going into the weekend, and as we approach the fourth quarter of the season, no team has been as impressive in Europe apart from, say, Real Madrid and Manchester City. They’re fun, fast, free-flowing and they’re taking over Serie A and the Champions League. You’d think they’d hit a wall at some point, but so far they’re just getting hit. Against relegation contenders Bologna this weekend, Napoli should be able to find the net a lot.

2. Juventus reach a tipping point
Massimo Allegri still has his work cut out, in a way, after Juventus’ 2-0 defeat by Maccabi Haifa on Tuesday in the Champions League. They are five points behind second place in the group and one might consider their UCL campaign over at this point. They are also eighth in the league, already seven points behind the top four. Surely a Torino derby defeat will be the last straw? Since the start of September, Juve have won just two of nine games.

3. Can Roma survive without Dybala?
by Paulo Dybala The injury he picked up last weekend could keep him out until 2023. While this is a blow to Argentina’s national team going into the World Cup, it’s an even bigger one for Roma. After joining as a free agent in the off-season, Dybala was outstanding, scoring seven goals in his first 15 games for the capital. Roma sit sixth and just a point off the top four, but can they weather the storm without him? They will need it Andrea Belotti to go up, but so far he has just one goal in nine games.
