Italy Legend Marco Tardelli: Milan Remain Favourites For The Scudetto

Italy legend Marco Tardelli believes Milan are still the team to beat in the race for the Scudetto despite their recent dip in form.

The Rossoneri have seen Inter storm back into title contention and the champions are now only two points behind their city rivals at the summit.

Napoli are also in the thick of things, sitting three points further back in what is shaping up to be a race to the wire, however Tardelli thinks that Milan are still the favourites to lift the crown when all is said and done in Serie A.

"The advantage is two points, and Milan are always ahead of Inter while the Nerazzurri need to win the derby if they are to take the lead in the standings," he told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

The 1982 World Cup winner also believes that Milan's slip-ups to Bari and Palermo might serve to strengthen the spirit of the squad before the derby, saying: "Their recovery must come against Inter and cannot go wrong."

Milan will lock horns with Inter on April 2.
