The 2023/24 Serie A season is set to kick off this weekend. Last season, Napoli shocked the football world by clinching the Serie A title. Their entertaining high-press and slick passing style took the whole of Italy by storm and Nigerian striker, Victor Osimhen was at the heart of it all. More than before in Nigeria, fans are looking forward to a new Serie A season with enthusiasm.
Here are some reasons why fans should expect another thrilling Serie A campaign:
Full coverage on DStv and GOtv: Football fans’ joy is watching their favourite clubs and players live on the pitch.

Watch the Serie A kick off with Osimhen’s Napoli taking on Frosinone this Saturday, on SuperSport Variety 3 (DStv ch 208 and GOtv ch 63), at 5:30pm.
Unpredictability: After nine conservative titles for Juventus, the Serie A has seen three clubs lift the title in the last three seasons. Inter Milan won in 2021, AC Milan took the title in 2022, and Napoli clinched their first title in 36 years in 2023. Napoli’s win was the first time a team aside from the renowned powerhouses; Juventus, AC Milan and Inter Milan has won the Serie A since 2001. The Serie A has become competitive in recent years and this is what the fans love to see. Going by Napoli’s feat last season, the 2023/24 season looks set to be another interesting campaign, which could see teams like Roma, Atalanta, and Lazio springing up a title challenge.

Nigerian Players: Super Eagles players made good impact in the Serie A last season. Ola Aina was a big part of the Torino team, Ademola Lookman was impressive for Atalanta, Isaac Success featured prominently in the Udinese team, while Osimhen led the pack with crucial goals that took Napoli to the title. With Samuel Chukwueze’s new move to AC Milan, Nigerians now have more to cheer for in the Serie A. AC Milan vs Napoli is usually one of the biggest fixtures in Italian football, and Nigerian football fans will be cheering both sides when Napoli host AC Milan on 29th October, live on DStv and GOtv.
Lengthy matches: Since the 2018-19 season, Serie A has averaged an adequate playing time of 61.35 minutes per match, the highest of the top five leagues in Europe. Fans should expect more added time this season, as Serie A match officials have been tasked to record every second spent on celebrations, goal kicks, substitutions and preparation for set pieces. This is to ensure that every minute wasted on these activities are adequately added to the official 90 minutes.
