My ASRoma bias aside, here our my year-end predictions to what promises to be an exciting Serie A 2013-14 season. Enjoy!
Gomez joins a suddenly stacked offense and heads Montella’s team to a top three finish.
4. AS ROMA
Led by Strootman & De Rossi, passing paves (finally) a return to glory for the Giallorossi.
5. AC MILAN
Super Mario & El Shaarawy tandem up to give the Rossoneri a Europa league qualifying finish.
6. INTER MILAN
The Nerazzurri improve on last year under the guidance of Mazzarri.
The eternally young Di Natale once again leads the attack for the ever dangerous Bianconeri.
Peruzzi leads a revamped, defense-fueled style as his team matches last year’s top 8 rank.
9. SS LAZIO
The suspension of captain Mauri doom the Biancocelesti as they settle for a top 10 finish.
Speaking of never aging, Cassano leads I Crociati to a top 10 result!
Always a tough out, just ask Juventus, the old sailors will weather the loss of Icardi just fine.
13. CHIEVO VERONA
If they stop beating themselves with yellow and red cards, they could surprise.
Forever destined to thrive in the middle of the Serie A but it sure beats relegation.
Losing Nainggolan would complicate things but the club have enough to say in the Serie A.
A strong attack led by Cerci & Immobile should be just enough to keep them up.
17. HELLAS VERONA
Toni (barely) keeps his newly promoted squad in the Serie A with still in-form finishing.
Unless they improve defensively on last year, Basket City is likely to be in relegated.
A lucky disaster of a squad from last year. This year they lost Ogbonna. Luck has run out.
Third time is a charm for a squad that is as unexciting as it is weak. #relegation
