Your Complete Guide To Opening Weekend In Italy's Serie A

This weekend, Serie A kicks off following a transfer window that changed the dynamic of the entire league. Former favorites have failed to impress while good investments have helped others emerge as contenders. 

A relatively unassuming first weekend of games gives way to a title fight that has the potential to include as many as five clubs. Relegation will be a trap door that many will need to be aware of, including some relatively big teams. 

FC Barcelona May Not Be Able To Register Its Players In Time

It seems FC Barcelona may be feeling the harsh consequences of its actions this summer. After signing a multitude of players in recent months for outrageous transfer fees while already having several players tied to absurd contracts, reports from Spain claim the club may not be able to register two of its biggest signings before the season and could lose them for free as a result.

The18's Serie A Predictions For 2022-23 Season

Police Say They Were Justified In Putting AC Milan Player At Gunpoint

Tiémoué Bakayoko is going viral for all the wrong reasons. 

The AC Milan player — on loan from Chelsea — was recently held at gunpoint by police in Milan. After video of the incident became public, the police said they were completely justified in the treatment of the professional footballer.

Better Now? How Juventus Could Line Up After Impending De Ligt Transfer

Nine successive Serie A titles followed by two campaigns where Champions League qualification seemed a shallow silver lining, Juventus’ fall from grace has been clear to see in recent years. This summer has seen several big names depart Turin, and the Bianconeri will be hard-pressed to find adequate replacements in order to once again fight for the Scudetto.

Soccer POV: FC Cologne Players Wear Bodycams In Friendly Against AC Milan

AC Milan defeated FC Cologne 2-1 in a preseason friendly yesterday. The game was fine and I imagine both coaches drew significant conclusions for the upcoming campaign, but what really blew people's minds was the absurd amount of technology used during the broadcast.

Part of the Telekom Cup, the match was billed as "The Innovation Game" due to all the gadgets used on the field, including unique cleat soles used to track player movements, some mic'd up ballers, and — for the first time — bodycams attached to two Cologne stars and the refs. 

Serie A Makes History And Appoints League's First Ever Female Referee

Italy's Serie A has appointed Maria Sole Ferrieri Caputi for the 2022-23 season as its first female referee.

She will now referee a top-flight match for the first time next term after joining the league's officiating team on Friday.
