Serie A TIM 2017-18 season
This will be the Gialloblù's 16th season in Serie A. The objective will be to avoid the drop, which will be all the harder this year as the newly promoted sides will want to emulate Crotone's exploits last season.
New features this season include new Sports Director Giancarlo Romairone and forward Manuel Pucciarelli, who comes to the club from Empoli. There are many young faces who will bring freshness to the experience of the group that is already in place. Once again the captain is Sergio Pellissier, in his 16th season here at the age of 38, who will wear number 31 in a strip designed as usual by Chairman Luca Campedelli.
Benevento and Spal will face ChievoVerona for the first time in Serie A: Spal and Chievo have played each other before, but Benevento will be completely new opponents. The big matches will be vital to staying up: will Chievo win away to AC Milan and Juventus for the first time this season?
For the fifth season in Serie A the Bentegodi Stadium will host two local derbies, which are unmissable occasions.
