Mazzarri: Napoli & Juve are the best

Napoli boss Walter Mazzarri believes his side's match against Juventus on Saturday is between the best two teams in Serie A.

The 51-year-old Coach has given his thoughts on the first seven games of the season, and the performances of a number of Italian teams.

“It is too early to judge,” he told QS. “But Juventus and Napoli are probably the best two teams. There are other though, who follow us closely.

“Roma, for instance, have a lot of talent. And Inter are a side that people thought had been left for dead, but have instead kicked into life this year.

“Lazio have a brilliant, technical team and are serious contenders. You cannot count out Milan either. They have a great tradition and experience, and will be back amongst the top soon.

“And last but not least, you have to remember Fiorentina. They have played well and have produced some great results. They have been the big surprise of the season.”

The Partenopei currently lie in second place in the table, and travel to Turin on Saturday to face the Bianconeri.
