Inter Milan fullback Douglas Maicon is adamant they are still in the title hunt.

Inter may have collected just seven points from a possible 21 so far this term, but Maicon insists they are still contenders.

"We'll believe in the Scudetto until the very end," the Brazilian international told Sky Sport Italia.

"The win against Chievo on Sunday was crucial and we have to continue on this path if we are to climb the table."
