Licht: ‘Roma and Inter Scudetto rivals’

Juventus full-back Stephan Lichtsteiner believes Roma and Inter “will play to the end for the Scudetto”.

The Bianconeri have won six games in a row after a poor start to the season, and are now firmly back in the Scudetto race.

“Are other teams afraid of us?” Lichtsteiner considered, speaking to Sky.

“I don’t know. We’re focused on trying to win, and I think we’ve found the right way. I’m not interested in whether or not they’re afraid.

“Could Inter win it? Sure, like Roma they’re a team with good players and a top Coach. So they’re definitely two opponents who will play to the end for the Scudetto.”

The defending champions face an early-kick off in Modena against Carpi on Sunday, but the Swiss international isn’t worried by the early start.

“We’ll prepare it like any other game. We’re back among the top teams, so it’s important to be ready.

“I’m not worried, because we players are professionals and we’re able to handle this.”
