Inter And Milan Are One Step Ahead Of Us – Nicola Legrottaglie

Juventus defender Nicola Legrottaglie feels that Inter and Milan are the main contenders for the Scudetto.

Juventus defender Nicola Legrottaglie believes that after the acquisition of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Robinho, Milan are the favourites for the Scudetto along with reigning Italian and European champions Inter.

The Italian defender claims that the Old Lady's target for this season will be a Champions League spot.

“Inter and Milan are one step ahead of us,” Legrottaglie told Sky Sport 24. “The Rossoneri have signed Ibrahimovic and Robinho, which means they are much stronger now.

“Ibra especially adds a lot to their team and I believe they will be fighting for the title this year."

Regarding Juve, Legrottaglie claims that they will be competing with Roma for the third position.

“I can see us and Roma be playing against each others for a place behind Inter and Milan,” he noted.

“Our minimum target is to improve from last season and finish in the top-four. We want to make it into Champions League as well as going all the way in the Europa League."

Juventus were successful in a friendly game against amateur side Fontabuona today.

The Bianconeri won 6-1 with Vincenzo Iaquinta scoring a brace in front of President Andrea Agnelli. Newly signed Alberto Aquilani and Leandro Rinaudo also took part to the friendly match.
