'Juve & Napoli strongest'

Roma defender Federico Balzaretti has tried to calm fans’ expectations, claiming that Juventus and Napoli are still Scudetto favourites.

The capital club have enjoyed a superb start to the season, winning their first seven games and sitting atop Serie A.

The full-back though, has insisted that it is still too early for the League to be decided, whilst also commenting on Francesco Totti’s superb opening weeks of the season.

“We have made a great start to the season,” he told reporters. “But Juventus and Napoli are still the strongest teams in the League.

“We are playing some great football at the moment and changing the way people think about Italian football.

“First and foremost comes the person, and Totti is a fantastic man.

“He is 37-years-old and is the total professional.”
