Napoli assistant boss Fabio Pecchia insists they're not out of the Scudetto race.

AS Roma are breaking away from the chasing pack, having won the first nine games of the season.

"Roma are keeping up a rhythm that is impossible to match," the former Azzurri midfielder told Radio Onda Libera.

"However, we'll have to wait and see their strength further down the line. Napoli and Juventus are on an excellent road right now."
