ESPN FC's Paolo Bandini discusses Juventus' preseason transfers thus far, and their expectations for the coming season.
Dominant Juventus are looking to lift their sixth consecutive Serie A title this season.

Juventus will begin the defence of their Serie A title with a home game against Fiorentina, with that fixture the pick of the opening day games in the 2016-17 season schedule.

The Bianconeri, who lost their opener to Udinese last year and took over a month to get their season up and running, will host the Viola on the weekend of Aug. 20-21.

Keita Balde is a Senegal international.

The mayor of the Italian city of Padua has apologised to Lazio's Keita Balde after he was subjected to racist chanting during a recent friendly in the city.

Keita was making his first appearance of preseason for the Biancocelesti and his performance against third-division side Padova, with an assist and earning a penalty, would normally have taken the headlines, but it was instead the behaviour of several hundred of the home fans which overshadowed that.

Massimo Bitonci, the mayor of the northern...

Italian federation to rule on Lazio bid for 1914-15 Serie A title

Newly appointed Italy manager Giampiero Ventura highlighted how the Italian league is harming the product of the national team.

The Italian football federation has set up a commission to investigate whether Lazio should share the 1914-15 Serie A title with Genoa for the season that was interrupted by World War I, according to a report.

More than 30,000 Lazio supporters signed a petition calling for the probe in the hopes that the club could be crowned Italian champions for a third time, pulling them level with neighbours and arch-rivals AS Roma on three Italian titles, Reuters reports.

Genoa and Lazio were due to meet...

Stefano Mauri says Lazio chief Claudio Lotito promised him coaching role

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti breaks down the latest speculation surrounding the motives for Marcelo Bielsa's resignation at Lazio.
Stefano Mauri
Stefano Mauri first joined the club in 2006.

Stefano Mauri says he is keen to find out why he has not been offered a coaching role after being released by Lazio, with club president Claudio Lotito reneging on a promise he had made.

Mauri, 36, was not given a new contract by the Biancocelesti at the end of the season but the midfielder, who insists he will carry on playing for another year or so, says it is the way in which his 10-year spell with the club came to such an end that disappoints him.

"I need to meet with the president to clear...
