So, everyone’s got their predictions in about where everyone will finish in the league.

But who will get it right?

We said in our preview that we thought that Milan would finish 5th, but it was close, as about half of the staff thought that Milan would go fourth. Gazzetta dello Sport agrees with those of us who are a little more optimistic, thinking that Milan will finish in 4th place behind Juventus, Inter Milan, and AS Roma.

Fair enough.

It’s fun to predict and all, but literally anything can happen this year. Well Juventus will probably win the league, but hey, stranger things have happened, right?
