Legendary former Inter midfielder Evaristo Beccalossi is hoping that the Nerazzurri and Napoli are the two teams who fight for the Serie A title race until the end.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli, the former midfielder named the Nerazzurri and the Partenopei as Scudetto favourites and hoped that they would have an exciting Scudetto race until the end.
Inter are currently four points ahead of Napoli with a game in hand, in addition to having the same lead over city rivals AC Milan.
However, the Partenopei will have plenty of time to catch up to Inter over the rest of the campaign, including in a head-to-head clash between the two sides immediately after Inter face the Rossoneri in the derby.
Beccalossi can see the two sides going head to head until the end of the season, and would like to see this be the case.
“I hope that it will be between Inter and Napoli,” he said. “I have always said that they’re the two favourites for the Scudetto and I hope that the Azzurri will fight for it until the end.”
Of the Nerazzurri’s season, he stated that “Their situation is incredible, I remember that at the beginning of the year I was hearing so much talk about them – accounting books this, debts that, and yet even after selling key players they’ve maintained their level.”
“Simone Inzaghi has done very well,” he added.
