Napoli landed a first league title since 1990 at the end of the previous campaign, and they will be looking to retain their prize this term. They open their 2023-24 campaign on the road against newly-promoted Frosinone on Saturday.
Serie A Preview
Napoli ended the 2022-23 season as the comprehensive champions in Serie A, as they won their first title since 1990. They will be looking to retain their title this term, but they could face a challenge with improved Inter Milan, Juventus, and Roma sides among their most likely rivals. Napoli started the season excellently last term, and that was ultimately the difference that gave them a huge advantage as the season progressed.
Their big plus this summer is the fact that they have been able to keep hold of Victor Osimhen. The Nigerian striker was the top scorer in the division last term, netted an impressive 26 goals. Rudi Garcia is the new man in the dug out this term, and the club have added quality in the forms of Natan, Elian Caprile, and Giacomo Raspadoria. However, they have won just three of their six pre-season matches.
Frosinone is one of the welcome additions to Serie A this term, as they will be competing in the Italian top-flight for the first time since 2015-16. Their promotion was assured following a 3-1 win over Crotone in May, and there have been wild celebrations across the city in preparation for this opening showdown against the Italian champions.
Frosinone finished top of the Serie B standings last term, as they won 24 of their 28 league matches. Overall, they suffered just six defeats, and were the highest scorers in the division. Meanwhile, no side in the second tier boasted a better defensive record than Frosinone.
