Serie A did well for itself this Summer, but Fiorentina buying Gomez doesn’t help Serie A's Champions League aspirations this year.
Juventus has been so dominant in Serie A over the last two seasons for a reason: They’re a really good team. If that weren’t enough, they added to their only arguable deficiency last season. With Carlos Tevez, Juve will now likely annihilate everyone they play. Ask Lazio how easy it is to shut down the Old Lady’s attack.
For Napoli, there’s a lot that remains to be seen. They added to their attack in the wake of their loss of Edinson Cavani, and upgraded just about everywhere else. Raul Albiol was a strong signing for a backline that is porous at best. Jose Callejon, Dries Mertens, and of course, Gonzalo Higuain all bolster the attack remarkably well. Pepe Reina from Liverpool and Rafael will have Napoli’s goal well protected for years to come.
AC Milan added Kaka and Lost Kevin-Prince Boateng. They also added Alessandro Matri from Juventus. Andrea Poli joined from Sampdoria and will provide stability in an inconsistent midfield. With Mario Balotelli no longer cup-tied, Milan will be formidable throughout the competition.
No doubt about it.
