Italy coach Marcello Lippi rates Roma as Scudetto favourites.

Italy coach Marcello Lippi rates Roma as Scudetto favourites.

Lippi has already angered Inter Milan by snubbing their training sessions this season and his comments are sure to further infuriate the defending champs.

"I said last week that Inter had a slight advantage because they were one point in front,” explained Lippi.

“If you are chasing a team, then you can win all of your games and give your absolute best, but it still might not be enough.

“If you are a point in front then it only depends on you. If you always win, then nobody can overtake you.

“Roma are now in a position to have that slight advantage. Their destiny is in their hands.”
