Fiorentina Defender Martin Caceres: “Inter Can Challenge Juventus Thanks To Antonio Conte”
Former Juventus and Lazio defender Martin Caceres believes Juventus are still the favourites for this season’s Serie A title, despite Inter’s strong start to the season.
The 32-year-old Uruguayan spoke to Rome based newspaper Corriere dello Sport and had no doubts the Nerazzurri would be the Old Lady’s closest rivals in the league.
Inter are currently top of the table after a perfect start, winning all five of their opening games. Juventus, on the other hand, have had a strong start but a frustrating 0-0 draw to Fiorentina has left the Bianconeri two points behind Conte’s men.
Asked which side was favourite to win the Scudetto, Caceres said: “Juventus again. Inter are the anti-Juventus because of their coach.”
Next weekend will be the first meeting of the season between Inter and Juventus, in one of the most important Derby d’Italias in recent memory, with both squads fighting for the top spot.
