5. Serie A

Serie A was once considered the finest in the world, boasting the likes of Zinedine Zidane and Pavel Nedved while teams like AC Milan and Juventus dominated the European stage.

But match-fixing scandals and an economic downturn has left the Italian league in a transitional period.

The challengers to Juventus' crown seem few and far between with Antonio Conte's side likely to win a third successive title this season.

An impressive 1.38 goals per game is a saving grace for the league but with a massive 39 points separating first and 20th, the lack of depth in quality is real concern.
