Del Piero: ‘Juve could have been in title race’

Juventus legend Alessandro del Piero believe the Bianconeri could have been firmly in the title race, had they not lost the Derby against Inter. Juve lost in controversial fashion, putting the Nerazzurri back into the race and Del Piero believes they will go on to lift the title.

“For what they’ve shown this season, Inter are still the favourite,” Del Piero told Sky Sport Italia.

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.

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.”
