Zola backs the Rossoneri

Gianfranco Zola believes Milan will be the team to beat in 2011-12, but he expects a mammoth Scudetto battle.

The Rossoneri comfortably won Serie A last term after practically dominating the championship from start to finish.

They'll begin the new season at the front of the grid, but the former Italian international expects them to be tested.

"Milan will be the favourites for the Scudetto," the former Parma and Chelsea fantasista told ANSA.

"Inter will then follow, as will Juventus who have strengthened with Arturo Vidal and Giuseppe Rossi.

"I also think that Roma and Napoli can also fight for the title."

Juve's swoops for Vidal of Bayer Leverkusen and Villarreal striker Rossi have yet to be confirmed.
