‘Roma are Juventus’ main rivals’

Massimiliano Allegri believes Roma are Juventus’ main rivals for the Scudetto, and “this year will be a much more difficult season”.

The Bianconeri are going for a seventh Serie A title in a row, and the Coach believes it will be the most difficult of all the victories so far.

“This year will be a much more difficult season because all our rivals have strengthened,” Allegri warned in an interview with Premium Sport.

“It will be complicated to win the seventh consecutive Scudetto, but that’s our primary goal for the season.

“Last year Roma got 87 points, their historic record, and therefore they’re our main rivals.

“But Napoli, Milan and Inter will also fight for the Scudetto, and don’t rule-out Lazio.”
