All statistics correct as of 31 May 2015.

The 2014–15 Serie A (known as the Serie B. It began on 30 August 2014.

A total of 20 teams compete in the league: 17 sides from the 2013–14 season and three promoted from the 2013–14 Serie B campaign. Juventus were the defending champions. On 2 May 2015, Juventus won the scudetto for the fourth consecutive time.[2]

Events

The season will feature the return of Palermo after only one season in the second division and Empoli, whose last appearance was in the 2007–08 season. Cesena, the play-off winner, returned to the top level after two years in Serie B.

The pre-season saw two ownership changes: Cagliari was sold from Massimo Cellino to Milanese entrepreneur Tommaso Giulini, a former board member at Internazionale. Sampdoria was sold by Edoardo Garrone (son of the late Riccardo Garrone) to Rome-based film businessman Massimo Ferrero.

The season was also influenced by serious financial problems surrounding Parma, involving two controversial takeovers during the season, its last chairman Giampietro Manenti being arrested on 18 March 2015 under accusation of money laundering, and the club being ultimately declared insolvent by the local court on the very next day.

The Serie A this season had the most goals on average than any of the five other top leagues in Europe.[3]

Rules for classification: 1) points; 2) head-to-head points; 3) head-to-head goal difference; 4) goal difference; 5) number of goals scored; 6) draw. (Head-to-head record is applied for clubs with the same amount of points only once all matches between said clubs have been played.)
(C) Champion; (R) Relegated.
Notes:
  1. ^ a b Since winners of the 2014–15 Coppa Italia, Juventus, qualified for European competition based on league position, the spot awarded to the cup winner (Europa League group stage) is passed to the fifth-placed team and the spot originally meant for the fifth-placed team (Europa League third qualifying round) is given to the highest placed team that has obtained an UEFA license and not already qualified for European competition.
  2. ^ Genoa did not obtain a UEFA licence. Therefore, even if they earn the right to play in European competitions based on league position, they will not be able to participate.[27] Genoa appealed the decision, but the appeal was denied.[28]
  3. ^ Parma was docked 7 points for failing to pay over players' wages.[29][30][31]

Positions by round

The table lists the positions of teams after each week of matches. In order to preserve chronological evolvements, any postponed matches are not included to the round at which they were originally scheduled, but added to the full round they were played immediately afterwards. For example, if a match is scheduled for matchday 29 (Fiorentina vs Sampdoria), but then postponed and played between matchdays 30 and 31, it will be added to the standings for matchday 30.
