AS Roma defender Mehdi Benatia has played down their title chances.

Benatia insists Juventus and Napoli are in a better position to win the Scudetto than his Roma side.

"We're not favourites for the Scudetto," the summer signing from Udinese told Sky Sport Italia.

"Our principal objective this season is to get this team back into European competition.

"If anything more than that is possible then we'll do that, but Juventus and Napoli will fight until the end and we'll have to duel with them."
