For many of UK based fans of Italian football, Serie A will conjur up memories of its heyday in the 1990's. At the time it was undoubtably the best league in the world and it became hugely popular on British shores when Paul Gascoigne signed for Rome-based Lazio.
The Italian top division sees passions run high as you would expect from a country as mad about football as Italy and Serie A can boast some truly huge names on the global football scale. While the league has had its troubles over the past decade, there is little doubt that Italian football is on the up. Teams like Juventus, Inter Milan and Napoli are all regulars on the European stage, both in the Champions League and Europa League while emerging clubs such as Atalanta are also beginning to make their mark, not just in Italy but around Europe.
It looks as though Italian football has now gone past the troubles it has faced, and also undergone somewhat of a revamp in recent years. Gone are the days of defensive football and narrow 1-0 victories, this is a high-scoring football league with regular five and six goal thrillers for fans to enjoy. Here at FREEbets.org.uk we give you the rundown of just what you may want to use your Serie A free bet on.
