Former Napoli player Moreno Ferrario believes Roma are only ahead of the Azzurri because they have had no European commitments this season.
The Giallorossi hold a nine point lead over Rafa Benitez’s side heading into the final stages of the season bit the 55-year-old thinks the Partenopei’s season has still been a success.
“Napoli are ready for the final push this season,” Ferrario told Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli. “Though Roma’s victory last night has complicated things a little bit, they will not give up.
“The Giallorossi have more points than Napoli because they haven’t had any games in Europe this season. They have only had the league.
“Benitez’s team have had a great season and there is still a trophy for them to bring home.”
