AS Roma midfielder Erik Lamela believes they're capable of competing for the title this season.

Lamela is enjoying preseason under new coach Zdenek Zeman.

"I never felt too much pressure in my first season, but I do want to score and provide more assists for my teammates too.

"Can we win the Scudetto? Every team can. My objectives are the same as everyone else's, as I want to have a good season and hopefully win.

"I have improved physically as a player, but above all tactically, as Italian football is much more tactical than what I'm used to. It's a bit of a struggle."
