Lippi favours Milan and Napoli

Italian World Cup winning boss Marcello Lippi thinks Milan and Napoli will start on the front row of the Scudetto grid.

With the Serie A season set to start at the end of this month, Lippi thinks the two clubs have a major advantage over their likely rivals.

"Milan and Napoli have not changed Coach and this will benefit them," the Viareggino told Sky Sport Italia.

"Behind them are Juventus, Inter and Roma."

There is great anticipation as to how well Roma will play under new boss Luis Enrique and Lippi can't wait to see how they perform.

"Everyone is curious about Roma, even myself," the former Juventus Scudetto winner continued.

"They have decided to change their footballing philosophy and players, players who will have a great future.

"Despite that though, Milan and Napoli still have the advantage."
