Picking an Opening-Day Best Serie a XI

This summer has seen some major departures from Serie A, with last season’s leading goal scorer, arguably the league’s best defender and highest-profile name all moving on. However, despite the loss of Ciro Immobile, Mehdi Benatia and Mario Balotelli, the peninsula remains home to some incredible footballing talent.

Over the following pages is the best XI players on show this weekend, with a slight twist in order to make the choices more interesting. Only one player per club has been selected, allowing the spotlight to shine on some lesser-known faces as well as some of the instantly recognisable ones.

They line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation, and please don’t hesitate to leave a comment with your thoughts on the team selected.
