Mancini: Roma and Napoli are favourites

After Internazionale's 4-1 loss to Fiorentina this weekend, Roberto Mancini has admitted that Roma and Napoli are clear favorites for this seasons Scudetto.

The loss to Viola came as a shock after the Nerazzurri enjoyed fives straight victories in the Serie A to start the season

"The league is definitely more balanced now, but everything will be clearer after 12 or 13 rounds," the Mancini told Il Messaggero.

"Inter’s objective is to reach the Champions League, but because we're Inter we won't rule anything out.

"The Scudetto? Roma and Napoli are the best equipped to win it.

"Juve in crisis? I didn't expect it, even though having lost three players of the calibre of Tevez, Pirlo and Vidal, I knew that they would have a negative backlash.

"What are ten points to Juventus? When I was at City, six rounds from the end of the season we were eight points behind United yet we won the title.

Inter face up against Sampdoria this weekend and Mancini will hope his troops bounce back to winning ways after relinquishing their 100% record.
