They have become a yo-yo team in recent years but will be determined to reinforce their Serie A status and prove that they belong among the league’s elite. Lifted by the acquisition of Christian Vieri, Nelson Abeijon and Cristiano Doni, the Nerazzurri are certainly ready for battle.
Prediction: Will have enough to stay alive. Barely.
