Legendary former Inter, Real Madrid, and Roma forward Antonio Cassano believes that the Nerazzurri are favourites for the Scudetto but that Napoli are their closest competitors.
Speaking on Christian Vieri’s Twitch channel, as reported by FCInter1908, Cassano suggested that the Partenopei are the team best equipped to be a thorn in Inter’s side in the title race.
Inter still have their fate in their hands in the Scudetto race, given their game in hand against Bologna, and they will see their two closest rivals Napoli and Milan face each other over the weekend.
Both the Rossoneri and the Partenoperi are well in the title race, but it could be the latter whose form makes them likelier to push Inter all the way.
Napoli beat Lazio in their most recent match to take advantage of stumbles by their two rivals, and Cassano feels that they have the quality and form to seriously compete for the title.
“Napoli are the anti-Inter,” he said, “they had the best form in February and didn’t put a foot wrong. They are convincing me the most of any teams, including Inter.”
“They’ve had some lows, but in terms of their idea of football I’m enjoying them the most,” he added, “Inter must be wary. Inter remain the favourites but they must be watchful of Napoli.”
