Del Piero: Juve could have been in the title race
Juventus are currently fourth in the table, but would have returned to the title race if they had beaten Inter last week.
legend Alessandro Del Piero believes that if they had beatenInter
last week, they would have been in the title race and Inter are favorite to win the Scudetto.
The Nerazzurri won two consecutive games for the first time in 2022 and were also the only team in the top three in Serie A to win last week. They are currently two points behind leadersMilan
, and given that they have played one game less, they have the opportunity to return to the top of the table. Del Piero spoke about the opportunity that Juventus missed and called Inter the main contender for the title.
“For what they’ve shown this season, Inter are still the favourite.
“The Champions League exit was acceptable as they beat Liverpool away. They’ve created a lot and Edin Dzeko has contributed to as many goals as Romelu Lukaku.
“The figures prove the superiority of the Nerazzurri. They have the most balanced and depth team. They have already won, so some players know specific dynamics. That’s the real advantage in the final part of the season.”
“If Juventus had beaten Inter, now they would be involved in this fascinating race. They would have been there,”
“Generally, Napoli feel the pressure coming from their position in the table,” said the 2006 Italy World Cup winner.
“Perhaps, in terms of personality and character, they still don’t have what it takes to take off. They have highs and lows as soon as they reach the top.
“Being the favourite creates pressure, tension and responsibility. Napoli have always played well, winning incredible games, but then, they’ve always collapsed when they seemed close. That’s quite incredible.”
