Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini claims that there are no favourites to win the Italian Serie A and he expects a very tight finish to the season. The club are once again back in the title race after a very poor start to the campaign.
It looked like Inter Milan were going to be favourites for the title, but two defeats in the last five games has put them into the third spot. Juventus have been able to jump ahead of the Milan team by virtue of a better goal difference.
It is extremely tight at the top with the first four teams separated by just three points. This might be one of the reasons behind Chiellini’s assumption that Juventus cannot be considered as favourites just because they have won the title in the last four seasons. The Italian champions were able to go into the winter break with a fifth straight win after the 2-1 victory over Sampdoria.
Whilst fans had to make do with online casinos to keep themselves busy over the winter break the Juve players were working hard at an interational football camp in Dubai – hoping to re-kindle some form and be ready to hit the ground running when the games re-started.
