Udinese boss Francesco Guidolin has doubts about the strength of the two Roman clubs this season.
There are big expectations in the Italian capital after the transfer campaigns carried out by Roma and Lazio.
However, Guidolin, whose Udinese side finished fourth last term, seems to have some doubts about the duo.
"I think the Romans will have to get a move on if they are to compete with those at the top of the class," stated the tactician.
"I see Milan above everyone else as they are the club who have the best squad," he said of the reigning champions.
"One step below them are Inter, Juventus and Napoli."
The strength of Lazio could be revealed later tonight when they face Milan at San Siro in the first League game of the season.
