Elseid Hysaj says Napoli “believe” in the Scudetto, and expects a “beautiful fight” against Juventus and Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Partenopei amassed 91 points last season, but that still wasn’t enough to wrest the title from the Old Lady.
Carlo Ancelotti has taken over on the bench for the coming campaign though, and the Albanian expects another close race.
“Ronaldo at Juventus, Ancelotti at Napoli - it will be a beautiful fight,” Hysaj told Sky.
“There’s also Inter and others who are preparing well, it’ll be a league season that everyone will be watching.
“The Scudetto? We believe for all the competitions we play in, then we’ll see how it ends.
“Ancelotti has his own ideas and we’re working to improve. He plays with the full-backs further wide and we’re working to deliver what the Coach asks.”
