Rui Costa backing Juventus

Juventus are still favourites for the Serie A title, says former Fiorentina and Milan ace Manuel Rui Costa.

Speaking to Radio Mana Sport after the Viola beat Juve 4-2 at the weekend, the Portuguese legend is continuing to back Antonio Conte’s side for ultimate success.

“Juventus haven’t repeated the performances from the last two seasons, but I still think they are favourites for the Scudetto,” the now Benfica official noted.

Juve are currently joint second in the table with Napoli, five points adrift of a Roma side who have won eight from eight.

“Roma are the surprise, but they deserve to be top. I have great admiration for Francesco Totti, he is one of the best of all time.

“Fiorentina? I like the way they play, I like it a lot,” Rui Costa added. “I hope they can finish the season high up the standings.”
