Serie A 2022/23 fixtures released: Milan start title defence against Udinese
Inter will look to knock AC Milan off their perch in the 2022-23 Serie A term, while Juventus and Napoli could pose a Scudetto threat.
AC Milan will start their Serie A title defence at home to Udinese, while Inter Milan’s attempts to reclaim the Scudetto will begin at newly promoted Lecce. Stefano Pioli’s side edged out Inter for the championship in the 2021-22 campaign, their first Scudetto in 11 years, and will again face stern competition from Juventus, Napoli and Simone Inzaghi’s side next season.
Milan visit Atalanta on the second matchday, with the first Derby di Milano between Pioli’s side and Inter coming on 4 September, with Lazio hosting Napoli on the same day. Dusan Vlahovic will return to Fiorentina with Juventus on the same weekend, while Milan host Napoli and Massimiliano Allegri’s side in the space of two weeks between Weeks 7 and 9.
The first Derby di Roma will see Jose Mourinho’s side host Lazio on matchday 13, with the return meeting scheduled for matchday 27.
Serie A to stop for 2022 World Cup Qatar
Inter will meet Milan for their second clash in week 21, while Serie A will take a break between November 13 and January 4 2023, owing to the World Cup in Qatar.
The weekend of 7 May could be influential in the title race, with Atalanta hosting Juventus, Lazio visiting Milan, Inter travelling to Roma and Napoli playing at home to Fiorentina. Milan lifted the Serie A title on the final matchday in 2022 and should it go all the way again, Pioli’s men host Hellas Verona, while Inter make the trip to Torino and Juventus are away at Udinese.
