Inter’s Hugo Campagnaro expects former club Napoli to challenge Juventus in the Scudetto race this season.
“I think Napoli are on the same level as Juve – they have made some excellent signings,” the man who left the Azzurri at the end of his contract in the summer told Sky Sport 24.
The stopper got a close look at the Old Lady last Saturday when his Beneamata outfit collected a 1-1 draw against them at San Siro.
“We created many chances versus Juventus, without suffering too much pressure from the Bianconeri. Now, however, we must continue on this path.
“We are improving game by game,” he added.
“The gap between ourselves and Juventus can be reduced. I think they remain a step ahead of us as they have the best squad in the Division, but we are working well.”
Inter struggled badly last term, but they have collected seven points from a possible nine under the guidance of new boss Walter Mazzarri so far.
“We’ve had a wonderful beginning to the season, I did not expect us to start so well,” continued the 33-year-old.
“We'll be looking for a positive result against Sassuolo to confirm our ability, but games like this are amongst the most dangerous.”
