Bonucci: ‘Sarri playing mind games’

Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci believes Napoli Coach Maurizio Sarri calling them Scudetto favourites is “a bit of a mind game”.

The Bianconeri have climbed to second place in the table, but remain two points behind the Partenopei at the half-way point of the season.

Despite this, the Vesuviani Coach insists that the Old Lady “are better placed to win the Scudetto”, but Bonucci is taking those words with a pinch of salt.

Until Sunday night Lazio resembled the little boy that Santa forgot as they had struggled to find any sort of form in recent weeks and were also hit by a string of injuries.
