Inter’s Inzaghi appreciates Allegri’s ‘Serie A favorites’ tag

The Juve manager believes Inter are Serie A favorites and pressured them with his labelling, but Simone Inzaghi thinks there are many candidates.

saying that there are many candidates for this year’s title.

Inter will lock horns with Juventus on Sunday and the two sides are three points apart.

Inter are sitting third on the table, with Napoli on top after winning all their eight games. However, Allegri emphasized on Saturday’s pre-match news conference that the Nerazzurri are the favorites, notwithstanding Antonio Conte’s departure as well as Romelu Lukaku and Achraf Hakimi.

Inzaghi appreciated the compliment but he does not agree with the Juve coach.


The championship is at the beginning,"

Inzaghi told a news conference. 

"It's a very important match between two very competitive teams.

"If [Allegri] says so, a coach I respect so much, it's nice. I could say the same about them, Napoli, Milan and more.

"We want to be favourites and we will try to do our best."

Juve have won their last four games in Serie A, whereas Inter were defeated 3-1 in their last outing.

’s return has also been a boost to Allegri’s side after his injury setback.


Of course, Juventus are our historical rivals,"

Inzaghi said.

"We will have to do well to make the match ours. They have recovered all their players, they have excellent results and we must give them great attention.

"We have always held our ground and lost only two games despite playing well, even deserving a different result.

"The progress is good, we have slowed down for a moment, but we are aware and play excellent football."
