Help with scraping a web page with Python and BeautifulSoup

Hello everybody!

I need to gather data from this web page:

http://www.fantagazzetta.com/probabili-formazioni-serie-a

it's populated by Italian soccer team's names, player's names and votes for each player.

I've understood how to scrape a bit:
import os
import requests
from bs4 import BeautifulSoup

def clear():
    os.system(['clear','cls'][os.name == 'nt'])

root_url = 'http://www.fantagazzetta.com'
index_url = root_url + '/probabili-formazioni-serie-a'

pagina_html = requests.get(index_url)
dati = BeautifulSoup(pagina_html.text)

clear()

print "Team di sinistra:"
print
for squadra in dati.find_all("div", { "class" : "team-in-p" }):
    print
    print squadra.text
    print
    for giocatore in dati.find_all("div", { "class" : "in" }):
        for dato in giocatore.find_all("div", { "class" : "name"}):
            for nome in dato.find("a"):
                print nome

But I can't think about how to "bind" data (associate team name with all its players and each player with its vote)...

I'd need to nest for loops I think but I don't know how...

Any suggestion?

        self.games = list()
