I believe they were one of Milan's most hated rivals too in the history. (They have cost us at least two scudetti on the last day. I even remember van Basten getting a red card in a game against them. 90? can't be very sure now.)

When you compare them to the others it's not even close.  History, attendance.  I'm not against a minnow joining the league but if you want a team that's going to benefit the league most then it's Hellas.

Plus, they're managed by Fabio Grosso

Italy tested several options for the trident attack in a friendly against the Bologna youth team, while Federico Bernardeschi had two roles.
The Azzurri are preparing for their Euro 2020 qualifiers against Greece on June 8 and Bosnia-Herzegovina on June 11.
Coach Roberto Mancini had a training ground friendly against the Bologna youth team at Coverciano today, with three mini-matches lasting 40 minutes each.
He started out using Bernardeschi in the three-man midfield, with Federico Chiesa, Leonardo Pavoletti and Lorenzo Insigne in attack.

That ended 4-0 with a deflected Marco Verratti goal, two Insigne strikes and a Chiesa finish.

Most of the experiments seemed to be in the forward trident, as Cagliari’s Pavoletti was replaced as centre-forward by Andrea Belotti of Torino, then Ciro Immobile was the focus point in a 4-2-3-1 variation.

Bernardeschi also switched between wide right in a three-man midfield to part of the trident attack.

It is reported Salvatore Sirigu of Torino will be chosen to start in goal rather than Gianluigi Donnarumma.

Italy 1: Sirigu; De Sciglio, Bonucci, Chiellini, Biraghi; Jorginho, Verratti, Bernardeschi; Chiesa, Pavoletti (Belotti 30), Insigne
Goals: Verratti, Insigne, Insigne, Chiesa
Italy 2: Cragno; De Sciglio, Mancini, Romagnoli, Emerson Palmieri; Pellegrini, Sensi, Barella; Bernardeschi, Belotti, Insigne

Goals: Belotti, Pellegrini, Pellegrini, Immobile (pen), Immobile

Italy 3: Gollini; Izzo, Mancini, Acerbi, Emerson Palmieri; Cristante, Sensi; Grifo, Zaniolo, El Shaarawy; Immobile
Goals: Grifo, Zaniolo, Sensi, El Shaarawy, Quagliarella, Emerson Palmieri, Emerson Palmieri, Quagliarella

Don't why Kean is not included in starting line up. Rubentus also wasting his talent and Italy should move on from Chiellini as this season might be his last season of elite football.

It's pretty much same problem we have (had) here. Mediocre telletubis on bench with 0 coaching experience and -5 tactical knowledge. Also ,few more or less important players don't want to play while he's in charge ,even had rebbelion to replace him ,but FA sticked to their "choice".
As for first game we played in Potugal (drawed 1-1) it could easily end with similar result ,but we had great amounts of luck + referee didn't showed clear penalty for Portugal. As we all know ,one will eventually run out of luck and get what one deserves ,which happened last night. Not really surprised for what happened ,it was hanging in the air waiting to happen...
Avaiting for arrival of exorcist into our boardroom.
