Serie A opening weekend approaches


This weekend, another major European league is set to open its doors, as the action in Serie A begins on Saturday.

Recently it's been all about Inter — the prestigious club from Milan swept the silverware last year, walking away with three trophies, including the league title, Coppa Italia and the Champions League. The defending champions have swapped in Rafa Benitez for Jose Mourinho, and sent hulking striker Mario Balotelli on his way to England.

But Wesley Sneijder and Diego Milito are back and will look to fend off the challenges from the Serie A rivals hoping to mount a title challenge. AS Roma and AC Milan came closest to Inter last year, finishing second and third respectively, while Juventus looks to bounce back after finishing in a disappointing seventh place.

They'll all be chasing Inter, a club in search of their sixth straight Serie A title.

What team will win Serie A? Think Rafa Benitez can get the job done? Can Juventus bounce back?
