Allegri Plays Down Scudetto Hopes Ahead Of Key Match Against Napoli

Massimiliano Allegri's

January 13, (THEWILL) – Juventus Coach, Massimiliano Allegri, has put pressure on Napoli by insisting they are favourites to clinch the Serie A title.

Napoli currently sits seven points clear of Juve at the summit of the league and that gap would grow to ten should Luciano Spalletti’s side come out on top in Friday’s clash between the top two teams.

While the Bianconeri have overcome a slow start to put themselves firmly in the driving seat to secure a Champions League place, Allegri looked to dispel any idea of putting up a serious Scudetto challenge against Napoli, who last won the league in 1990. The trip to Naples on Friday also represents the last game of the Andrea Agnelli era at Juve.

Agnelli and the rest of Juve’s directors officially resigned back in November but will only be replaced on January 18.
