Former Juventus and Roma midfielder Zbigniew Boniesk believes that Inter and Napoli are the two teams likeliest to face off for the Serie A title this season.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster 90 FM on New Sound Level, the current UEFA Vice President gave the view that it is last season’s champions and this season’s early league leaders who are the favourites for the Scudetto.
Inter have gotten their Scudetto defense off to a solid start with five wins and two draws from their opening seven matches in Serie A, but they find themselves two points behind city rivals AC Milan and four behind perfect starters Napoli.
The Partenopei’s early form in particular suggests that they could be a formidable opponent to go head to head with for the Scudetto this season, and Boniek believes that for nearly every team in the Italin top flight they will be too much, but he considers the Nerazzurri to be rivals on equal footing to Luciano Spalletti’s side.
“In my opinion,” Boniek stated, “the favourites for the Scudetto are Inter and Napoli.”
