Legendary former Juventus midfielder believes that despite the strength of Inter’s squad, it is their city rivals AC Milan who are in the best position to win the Scudetto.
Speaking to Turin-based newspaper La Stampa in an interview published in today’s print edition, Marchisio gave his thoughts on the Scudetto race and named the Rossoneri as the favourites while also praising the quality of the Nerazzurri.
Inter showed in the derby against Milan just before the international break that they are more than capable of competing with their city rivals, dominating the ball for long period and creating multiple good chances to win.
However, in the end the lack of clinical finishing by the Nerazzurri’s strikers and the Rossoneri’s defensive resilience meant that the points were shared.
Marchisio believes that in spite of the quality in the Inter team, there is something spacial to this Milan side which makes them capable of going on to win the Scudetto.
On who he considers to be the favourites for the Scudetto, Marchisio stated that “I’d say Milan because they are the team that has have grown together, even if Inter have the strongest squad; Napoli are doing well but in the decisive moments in recent years they have fallen, perhaps due to the pressure. In short, I see the Scudetto back in Milan.”
