2017-18 SERIE A REVIEW

Serie A 2017-18 season review

Juventus secured the Scudetto for a seventh season in a row, but they needed 95 points to hold off the challenge of Maurizio Sarri's Napoli. The Champions League race went to the wire, with Inter beating Lazio on the final day to secure their place in the top four at the Aquile's expense.

Milan once again underwhelmed, but Atalanta continued to impress and secured European football once again.

Benevento were out of their depth, despite a goalscoring goalkeeper, but the final relegation place was only decided on the final day.

Relive the highs, lows and extraordinary in-between moments in Football Italia’s season review of 2017-18.
