The Nerazzurri trainer does not believe in conspiracy theories claiming the Turin giants are being favoured by referees

Inter coach Andrea Stramaccioni has laughed off suggestions that Italian officials are deliberately favouring Juventus.

The reigning Serie A champions have had a number of controversial decisions go their way in the opening months of the 2012-13 campaign, most notably a disallowed Catania 'goal' at the weekend, but the Nerazzurri trainer believes there is no truth in any conspiracy theories.

"I haven't seen anything so far in the league to suggest a pro-Juve bias," Stramaccioni was quoted as saying on the Inter website.

"People took notice of what happened at Catania because there were two decisions which went in favour of one team, but I don't think there's any evidence pointing towards a pro-Juve sentiment, aside from the match in Catania.

"In general I haven't noticed Juve getting any favourable treatment."

Inter take on Sampdoria on Wednesday, before locking horns with the Bianconeri at the weekend.
