Serie A preview 20-21 June 2020

The 2019-20 Serie A season will return to the screens of SuperSport viewers on DStv and GOtv with four catch-up matches on Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 June 2020.

SuperSport is your home of football and the best place to see all the action from around the world as #LiveSportReturns.

Serie A has been absent since Monday 9 March due to world events, meaning it will have been more than three months since a ball was kicked in anger in the Italian top flight, and SuperSport viewers can look forward to a feast of football as leagues around Europe resume and rush to finish their campaigns.

The pick of the four catch-up fixtures sees Internazionale host Sampdoria at the San Siro on Sunday night. The Nerazzurri’s last Serie A clash was a 2-0 loss away to log leaders Juventus on 8 March which could yet prove a killer blow to their title hopes, though victory in this game in hand will bring back to within six points of the top.

Legendary Italian football manager Arrigo Sacchi believes Inter may still have a part to play in the title race: “I took a look at the fixture list and it seems to me that Inter’s road is quite easy. I think Conte can bring them back to fight at the top, even if Juve, for the squad available, and Lazio, for the great motivations, will start with an advantage.”

The Serie A ‘s first game back will arrive on the evening of Saturday 20 June when Torino welcome Parma to Turin’s Olympic Stadium. Il Toros will be desperate to break a six-game losing streak which has seen them slip so severely down the table that relegation is a genuine threat, while Parma will look to Ivorian star Gervinho for inspiration as they seek to climb from ninth place and challenge for a spot in Europe next season.

This will be followed by Hellas Verona tackling Cagliari at Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi. I Gialloblu won just once in their last five Serie A matches before the break, but that’s plenty better than the Rossoblu, who have yet to taste victory in a match in any competition in 2020.

Sunday’s opening match, before Inter’s weekend closer, sees free-scoring Atalanta host Sassuolo in Bergamo. La Dea have been the most entertaining team in Serie A this season, and manager Gian Piero Gasperini will be hoping his team can pick up where they left off back in March: a 4-3 victory at Valencia in the UEFA Champions League completed a run of seven wins from eight matches across all competitions… and a haul of 34 goals in the sequence!

No rival can compete with SuperSport‘s coverage. Our viewers on DStv and GOtv can see all their favourite stars from the African continent dominating Serie A pitches across Italy!
