Pioli predicts 2023-24 Scudetto winner, breakout player and surprise team

As is tradition at the mid-season mark of the season, Serie A managers have offered an insight into who they believe will be crowned with various awards at the end of the season – AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli was amongst those to contribute his opinion.

The ItalPress (via MilanNews) announced the list of the mid-season opinions for a list of topics, the Scudetto winner, Serie A’s breakout team, and also the player revelation of the year, as is tradition now, and there are very few differences in selections.

Stefano Pioli’s selections were as follows:

1. Revelation team: Bologna
2. Revelation player: Albert Gudmundsson
3. Italian Champion: Inter

Inter, given their nine-point lead, were consistently named as the managers’ vote for who will win the Scudetto at the end of the season. However, Gian Piero Gasperini strayed from this, believing that Juventus would lift the trophy at the end of the season.

Claudio Ranieri sat on the fence with his selection, listing both Inter and Juventus, which we feel somewhat breaks the rules of the debate, but hey-ho, and Inter’s Simone Inzaghi flat-out refused to answer that question.

In terms of the revelation team, Thiago Motta’s Bologna were most commonly given as the answer, with Inzaghi, Vincenzo Italiano and Gabriele Cioffi all straying from the norm and suggesting Frosinone.

Finally, in terms of the player who has broken out this year, Milan target Joshua Zirkzee was the most common choice.
