Legendary former Juventus and Inter midfielder Marco Tardelli feels that Inter and AC Milan are just about equally matched in the Scudetto race.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster RAI Radio, the 67-year-old suggested that there is not much to split the Nerazzurri and the Rossoneri.
Despite the presence of Napoli, Atalanta, and Juventus behind them, the two Milan clubs look to be the best-positioned sides to compete for the Scudetto over the second half of the season.
After finishing last campaign first and second in the table respectively, Inter and Milan found themselves occupying the same spots after half a season played this time around.
The Nerazzurri’s form in the run-in to the winter break has marked them out as the favourites to defend their Serie A crown from last season in the eyes of many observers, but Tardelli feels that the Rossoneri are close enough to them that they should not be counted out.
“There’s not much difference between the two Milan clubs,” he stated. “The Rossoneri are a growing team; if Pioli manages to get the best out of Ibra, he has a good hand to player.”
“Inter can take the pitch with a sense of calmness,” he went on. “We have seen this team playing good football, enjoying themselves, and showing that they have more than their opponents.”
