Football Italia calcio quiz - Serie A 1999-00

Think you know your Capocannoniere from your catenaccio? Test your Serie A knowledge with Football Italia’s calcio quiz, 1999-00 season edition!

We’re looking back to the 1999-00 campaign and the heady days of the Seven Sisters.

Milan entered as champions having had Lazio push them all the way in 1998-99, and it took Le Aquile until just the following season to go one better, as they fought off Juventus to clinch the Scudetto.

Inter, Roma, Parma and Fiorentina were all fighting for glory, too, as Serie A reigned as the biggest and best league in the world.

It was a season to forget for Torino, Venezia, Cagliari and Piacenza as they dropped to Serie B, back in the era of four relegation places and an 18-team league.

How much do you remember from this season of Serie A, though? Here are 20 questions to tease even the biggest calcio brains. No prizes, just personal pride – post your score in the comments below.

Click the quiz to get started, and buona fortuna!

Have your say...
15/20. Not bad. Didn't know the Blanc, Rorino red cards n I couldn't remember whether it was Lazio or Inter with 20 internationals, the Verona placing 11th n the Montella one!

Roberto Baronio was a midefielder who played alongside Pirlo at Brescia while on loan from Lazio (I think). I remember seeing him play and he looked very impressive. Reminded me of the German international Bernd Schuster. An example of how great young talents do not always establish themselves.

And I missed 2 that I knew for sure! Sheva was top scorer for 99/00 (I really can't explain myself how come I picked H. Crespo), and instead of Salernitana, for Gattuso, as a club from which he came to Milan, I got confused and clicked Rangers... The second one, somehow I can understand for missing, but the first one... DAMN!

Great quiz, literally cried like a baby at the end of the rain delayed match in Perugia watching from my home in Ireland. Seriously how would anyone know Torino red cards that season!? Was in Turin for Juve last match at Allianz with spectators against Brescia and wish the entire Italian nation all the very best of luck in their battle against this insidious virus. Also, well done to entire Juve squad for leadership on wages deferral and to legendary Giorgio Chiellini for making it happen.

13/20 . They just don't make football like that anymore. Those halcyon days of Serie A will never be surpassed.

18/20, who the hell was baronio and seriously i couldn't remember who finished top in serie b in 2000.

It is a good quiz you would have to followed serie a for a decent amount of time to even get 10 out of 20 questions.

One of the best seasons of all time. Would have been surpassed this year by Lazio if it was for this blasted virus. I really hope and pray for those in Italy and that it gets under control soon. 14/20 by the way on my first attempt.
