Former Inter and Lazio goalkeeper Marco Ballotta believes that the Nerazzurri are one of three teams fighting for the Scudetto, and that they are the team likeliest to go on and win it.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster 1 Station Radio, the former keeper gave the view that the Nerazzurri have the edge over their main rivals and league leaders Napoli and AC Milan in the chase for the Serie A title.
Inter are four points behind city rivals the Rossoneri and the Partenopei at the top of the Serie A table, but they will also feel that the momentum is with them after a weekend in which they gained ground on both teams with a big win over the latter.
The Scudetto race does not look likely to be settled any time soon before the end of the season, but the Nerazzurri will hope that this favours them and that they will be able to hold out and outlast their two main rivals.
“Inter are favourites to take home the Scudetto,” Ballotta stated, “but it will still be a three horse race that will also include Milan and Napoli.”
