Former Italian national team manager Cesare Prandelli has shared his belief that it will be a three way race for the Serie A title between Juventus, Lazio and Inter.
After a three month Coronavirus crisis enforced stop, the 2019/20 Serie A season is to get back underway later on today and there is still plenty to play for at both ends of the table and in between.
As things currently stand, reigning champions Juventus are leading the way at the top of the table having collected 63 points from 26 games played.
Lazio are in second place one point behind the Bianconeri whilst Inter are down in third place, eight points adrift of Lazio and nine adrift of arch rivals Juventus, having played a game less.
“Are Juventus still the favourites? Slightly but I think it will be a three way race,” Prandelli explained in an interview with Italian daily newspaper La Stampa, which appeared in the print edition.
He was then asked what percentage he gives each team of winning: “Juventus 40%, Lazio and Inter both 30%.”
Prandelli also tipped Inter to get back to the level they were at earlier on this season.
“I think the Nerazzurri played well in Naples. They played at a high level for 40 minutes and in the coming weeks they will extend this time and return to being the team admired for the whole season.”
