Former Inter striker Christian Vieri believes that Inter’s experience at the top and their ability to get the job done against smaller teams in Serie A makes them favourites for the Scudetto.
Speaking on the Serie A YouTube channel, as reported by FCInterNews, the former striker gave the view that his old team still have better title credentials than AC Milan after the Rossoneri’s massive win over Napoli yesterday evening.
Inter’s fate is still in their own hands in their defense of last season’s Scudetto crown considering their game in hand, but the title race looks as though it will go down to the wire with city rivals AC Milan now pulling just ahead of Napoli with their win.
The Nerazzurri, like the Rossoneri, have had both periods of excellent form and also wobbles, suggesting that everything will be up for grabs for both teams during the run-in of the season.
However, Vieri believes that it is Inter who have the edge during the remaining matches of the season.
Of the favourites for the Scudetto, he said that “I’d say Inter because, between the two seasons with Conte and this one with Inzaghi, this is the third year they’ve worked together.”
“Under Conte they created the base,” he continued, “last year they practically won the championship by January.”
“They are structured, they are more prepared in my opinion and they have a great squad, so I’d go with them,” he added.
Of the Rossoneri, Vieri stated that “They never give up, they won a great match against Napoli, but league titles are won against the smaller teams.”
