PSG coach Carlo Ancelotti feels Juventus will successfully defend their Scudetto this season.

Ancelotti admits he remains a big fan of Serie A.

“I never miss a Serie A match,” Ancelotti told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“It seems to me that the Bianconeri have notched up a solid eight-point lead and are the strongest team in the Division. However, things can always be turned upside down in Italy. Let’s just say it won’t be easy for their opponents to bridge that gap.

“Serie A remains a very strong League, it’s just that Juve are stronger. Antonio Conte’s side have technical, tactical and psychological strengths that nobody should underestimate. The ferocity and aggression of the Bianconeri is astounding. They never give up and Conte deserves praise for that, as you can tell it’s his work.

“I know Antonio, as I was his Coach. I can guarantee you he emerged covered in sweat even for a midweek game between ranks. I tip my hat to him!”
