Soccer teams in Italy: Which are the best in 2023?


What are the best soccer teams in Italy? Answering this question, at best, opens up endless (and passionate) discussions about why your team is the best in Serie A and soccer.

With numbers and data in hand, we’ll give you the names of the top-rated soccer teams in the Italian league.

Best Italian soccer teams in “Serie A”

The “Serie A Championship” has enchanted and mesmerized soccer lovers for over a century. The challenge to obtain the coveted Scudetto is the goal of the 20 teams competing since 1929, when the single round was established to modify the league that was first played in 1898.

The rules of Serie A are simple: there is a single round with round-trip starts; 3 points are awarded for a win, 1 for a draw, and 0 for a loss.If we look for the best Italian teams, it is natural to look at all the soccer teams that have historically won the most championships and that make Italians crazy about watching and betting on this amazing sport

The ranking of the best Italian teams, based on titles acquired in Serie A (and in alphabetical order), is this:

  • Juventus, 36 scudetti
  • Inter, 19 scudetti
  • Milan, 19 scudetti
  • Naples, 3 league titles

The 4 best Italian soccer team in 2023 


The queen of the Italian league is the Italian team with the most titles: there should be 70, including 36 championships, 2 Champions Leagues, and 3 Europa Leagues. Despite being founded by a group of young people (hence the Latin name of Juventus, youth) in 1897, Juve is nicknamed the Old Lady.

The greatest champions of world soccer have passed through Juve, from Cristiano Ronaldo to Alex Del Piero, one of the last flags of Italian soccer, i.e., champions who are fond of the jersey and do not get carried away by the soccer market but remain at the disposal of the team and end up representing it.


Born from a rib of AC Milan in 1908, Football Club Internazionale Milano, Inter for all of us, is the third Italian soccer team with the most titles. This team’s record is that it has never been relegated, so it has been in Serie A since its founding.

Among the 35 titles it holds are 19 Scudetti, 3 Champions League, and 3 UEFA Cups. Inter’s colors are black and blue, and undisputed soccer champions have worn their jerseys: Ronaldo the Phenomenon, Zenga, and Bergomi are just a few examples.


The Milan Rossoneri have won 49 titles over the years, including 19 league titles and 7 Champions Leagues, making it one of Europe’s most victorious soccer teams. Founded in 1899 as Milan Football & Cricket Club by an initiative of Englishmen and Italians, in a short time, it managed to break a series of victories by Genoa, which was the undisputed queen of the league in the late 1800s and early 1900s.

Milan was at its best with its purchase by Silvio Berlusconi, who in 1986 raised the club from Serie B to a center of attraction for top international talents such as Marco van Basten and Ruud Gullit. With them, the young Paolo Maldini and the club’s most victorious soccer coach, Fabio Capello, would make Milan great. The last Scudetto won by Milan is from the 2021/2022 championship.


The 2022/2023 Serie A Championship-winning team boasts 14 titles, including three Scudettos and a European Cup/League. It was founded in 1926 as a continuation of the Naples Football Club and the International Sports Union dating back to the early 1900s. Wearing the sky-blue jersey, it enchants its fans in the stadium dedicated to the grand champion who lived in symbiosis with the city he acquired, Diego Armando Maradona. The tremendous Argentine champion gave Napoli the Scudetto of 1986-1987 and 1989-1990.

Top soccer teams: UEFA rankings

We know very well, however, that for a team, it is not only the national rankings that count but also the number of victories achieved at the European level. European cups multiplied, especially postwar, to foster friendly relations and healthy competition between once-rival countries.

After the national championship, the most critical challenge for all Italian soccer teams is the one played at the European level since it hosts the strongest teams in the world.

The most coveted trophies currently are the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Europa League, better known as the UEFA Cup, which is the second most important trophy in Europe

Today, access to the UEFA League is broader and depends on the overall statistics of one’s league. By the way, Italy is ranked fourth after the English, German, and Spanish leagues. What is certain is that in June each year, the challenges to rank for a clash between 30 teams divided into eight groups of 4 teams begin.

the accessed by teams not participating in the Champions League, then by the fifth in the league.

The third European trophy is the Conference League, in which teams that lose the Champions League and are excluded from the Europa League should participate for Italian teams from seventh in the league.

The number of teams admitted depends on the UEFA ranking compiled by this body for European soccer.

According to the latest 2002/2023 UEFA ranking, the best Italian teams (those that have won the most titles at the European level) are:

  • Inter, 8th place
  • Juventus, 9 place
  • Roma, 11 place
  • Napoli, 18 place
  • Atalanta, 23 place
  • Milan, 35 place
  • Lazio, 42 place
  • Fiorentina, 72 place

Since some teams are featured nationally and internationally, these will be the best Italian soccer teams.
