Inter Milan has showed to be a bigger threat to Juventus than Maurizio Sarri’s Napoli in the Serie A title race. The Bianconeri currently trail the Partenopei who are unbeaten by one point with Luciano Spalleti’s side not too far behind in third place.

The San Siro outfit will be reigning Serie A champions’ main threat for the title this season, according to Juve’s chief executive Giuseppe Marotta. Juventus have won the last six league titles under Antonio Conte and Massimiliano Allegri, winning the Serie A title with a four-point advantage over Roma in 2016-17. Juve sit one point off the title after 12 matches this season, though, with unbeaten Napoli leading the way after 10 matches wins and two draws.

Inter are also in close in the title race after an undefeated start of their own, and Marotta believes it is the San Siro giants that will puts the Old Lady the hardest for the Scudetto. “I think that, given they have no international and European commitments, Inter are the ones who can tailor their preparation the best,” Marotta told Domenica Sportiva as quoted by Goal via FootballWeeks. “They’re a very solid team, they’re not spectacular but they’re clinical and getting good results. So I think Inter are the ones who are the most fearsome.”

Marotta added: “At the moment, we’re a point behind Napoli, but we have a point more than last year. I have to say that Napoli’s journey has been extraordinary so far. “[Napoli’s] draw [against Chievo on Sunday] calmed the league down a little, but they’re on an extraordinary journey while ours has been ordinary so far.

“At the same time, we’re doing perfectly well when compared to last year, so we know that getting up there and staying there is very difficult. “We apply our model, a particular model where suffering is important.”

    Actually i agree with the most part of this writing . Napoli and Roma had their chances to compete with Juventus for at least 5 years now and none of them ever past them . When it comes to INTER or Milan they know how to win if they get that close to the table . We have the right experience to win the title if we stay up there for 5 years like Napoli and Roma , Rube was never scared of Napoli and Roma because they just know they are not winers like Milano clubs . INTER only forward

    Hate when people stars to praise us too much -clearly Marotta is trying to play mind games on us because Roma is very close to us in the table and with a game in hand and Napoli is still in front of them, and both teams have better squads and have players who have played together for many years compared to our pretty new team.
