The Largest Wins in Serie A in Modern Era

Tuesday, 23 May 2023, 14:34 Last update: about 12 months ago

Serie A is one of the five most popular football leagues on the planet for a good reason. The league itself gave birth to so many superstars of the game and Italy as a country is home to some of the most iconic teams on the planet. Although Italian clubs have struggled for the old days' glory in the last decade, the likes of Inter Milan and AC Milan have managed to advance to the massive UEFA Champions League semifinal in the 2022/23 campaign. Does this announce the return of Calcio to the biggest stage in the years to come?

To celebrate the big success of the two Madonnina rivals, we have decided to recall some of the biggest wins in the history of Serie A as a competition, with the help of Luca Semproni, Serie A betting expert at betting picks portal bettingpicks4you.com. Some of the biggest scorelines in the history of the league include Torino’s 10-0 drubbing of Alessandria in 1948 or Milan’s 9-0 win over Casale in 1932. However, we will keep the focus on modern-era football only and remind ourselves of the largest Serie A wins since the 1994/95 season.

Roma vs Catania 7-0, 2006/07

Roma demolished Cremonese 9-0 in 2029 in one of the biggest wins in the history of the competition in general. La Lupa are also responsible for the joint-highest win in the Serie A modern era as they stormed past Palermo 7-0 in Gameweek No 12 of the 2006/07 season at the Stadio Olimpico. Christian Panucci opened the scoring early on, while Giuseppe Mascara’s red card cleared the way for the Romans to add three more goals in the first and three additional goals in the second half for a huge 7-0 win. Simone Perrotta and Cristian Panucci bagged two goals each, while the likes of Mancini, Vincenzo Montella, and Francesco Totti were on the scoreline on the occasion as well.

Palermo vs Udinese 0-7, 2010/11

Udinese broke their club record for the largest away win in the history of Serie A in February 2011 when they eased past Palermo 0-7 on the road. Interestingly, all seven goals were scored by just two players as Alexis Sanchez starred with four goals, while legendary Antonio Di Natale added three of his own.

Sassuolo vs Inter Milan 0-7, 2013/14

Inter Milan destroyed Sassuolo with an identical 7-0 scoreline two years in a row, both times in September at the beginning of the 2013/14 and 2014/15 campaigns. The first demolishing win came in September 2013 in Reggio nell’Emilia where Walter Mazzarri’s troops stormed past the rivals via a brace from Diego Milito and goals from Esteban Cambiasso, Ricardo Alvarez, Saphir Taider, Rodrigo Palacio, and Raffaele Pucino (an own goal).

The second win came exactly a year later, this time at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza where Mauro Icardi completed his first hat-trick in Italian football.

Juventus vs Parma 7-0, 2014/15

What kind of a highest-win record would it be without the most successful team in the history of the Serie A? Juventus came into the home clash against Parma on the back of 23 subsequent league wins on the home patch. They have continued the run in some fashion as three different men completed braces in a 7-0 thumping of Parma, their toughest defeat in league history. Carlos Tevez, Alvaro Morata, and Fernando Llorente bagged a brace each, while the remaining goal was courtesy of Stephan Lichtsteiner.

Juventus vs Sassuolo 7-0, 2017/18

We have both Juventus and Sassuolo in this article. Both teams were again on the same side of the drubbings as I Bianconeri stormed to a new 7-0 victory in Turin in February 2018. Sami Khedira completed a first-half brace, while Alex Sandro and Miralen Pjanic added a goal each before the half-time break. The second half was reserved for Gonzalo Higuain who completed a hat-trick in a crazy 20-minute spell.

Honorable mentions also need to go to Atalanta and AC Milan who have both demolished Torino 0-7 on the road in January 2020 and May 2021 respectively.
