- Important novelty in Serie A 2022-23: if two teams are tied at the top of the table: the title will be decided in one game and, if it ends tied, on penalties
The Italian Football Federation (FIGC) announced this Tuesday that, in the event of equality of points between two teams at the top of the table, the title of champion of Serie A will be decided through a match from the next season 2022-23.
If said match ends in a draw, the title will be decided through a penalty shootout. The playoff formula for the title was already in place in Serie A , but it was only applied once, in 1964, when Bologna beat Inter in Rome to claim their seventh and so far last Italian championship.
Last season the ‘scudetto’ went to Milan, with 2 points more than Inter, 2nd . If there are 3 teams that are level on points at the top, their direct confrontations and their particular goal differences would apply. The first 2 would play the decisive match for the title.
