Interestingly, they had not won the title before the 2000-01 season and have not won it since.

The most-respected tier of Italian soccer, Serie A has witnessed its fair share of dominant spells over the years.

A few of their other trophies include two UEFA Supercups, 14 Coppa Italia, and two Intercontinental Cups.
