Italian Sporting Director Pietro Lo Monaco has given his prediction for the Scudetto race in the upcoming season.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster Radio Crc, as reported by FCInter1908, the experienced footballing executive, who most recently worked as Sporting Director of Catania for four years, predicted that Inter and Juventus should be the two strongest teams in Serie A and fight for the Scudetto.

During his career, Lo Monaco has held roles with a number of prominent Italian clubs, including the likes of Udinese, Genoa, and Palermo, and he lends his insight to the upcoming title race in Serie A.

He views the Nerazzurri as among the favourites for the Scudetto, having already managed to win it last year, but also believes that the Bianconeri will bounce back from last season’s disappointment by their standards to compete at the top, and that Napoli will also be a strong side capable of competing.

Speaking about who he thought were the likeliest teams to win the Scudetto, Lo Monaco named “The usual suspects, Juve and Inter, and then Napoli.”
