The 2004-05 edition of Serie A took on a different complexion to seasons before, as the league expanded to 20 teams. A controversy in Serie B from the 2002-03 season led to a record number of club being promoted ahead of the 2004-05 campaign, creating a 20-team league that remains the status quo.
It was Juventus who would finish top of the enlarged table at the end of the season, eventually finishing seven points clear of Milan after holding first place for most of the year in a neck-and-neck race.

Ultimately, the 2004-05 season would come under the microscope in 2006 as the calciopoli scandal shook Serie A to its core. Juventus were stripped of the 2004-05 title and – officially – the Scudetto went un-awarded. But that’s all to come – how much do you remember about the 2004-05 season?
