Former AC Milan Sporting Director Massimiliano Mirabelli believes that Inter and Napoli are the two favourites to win Serie A this season.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster 1 Station Radio, the former executive gave the view that the Nerazzurri and the Partenopei are the two teams who look likeliest to go on and win the title even though he also considers Juventus to be capable of getting past their poor start.
The Sucdetto race appears to be taking shape, with Napoli the only team in Serie A with a perfect record after six games, while the Nerazzurri have gotten their title defense off to a decent start with four wins and two draws.
Juventus were another team who many had tipped to regain their Scudetto crown having lost it to Inter after nine consecutive wins, but the Bianconeri have not gotten off to the best of starts with only eight points so far, ten behind leaders Napoli.
Mirabelli believes that the Bianconeri can recover, but that it is Inter and Napoli who are best-placed to win the Italian top flight this year.
“Juventus can recover in the standings, because they have one of the best staff,” he said. “I believe, however, that the race for the Scudetto will be between Napoli and Inter.”
