Juventus centre-back Bonucci: Napoli our nearest rivals

Juventus centre-back Leonardo Bonucci rates Napoli as their nearest rivals.

Juve defeated Inter Milan on Friday night.

“We knew Inter had excellent individuals, who as a collective can cause you problems," Bonucci told DAZN.

“So it was a game where we had to dig in and risk something to score, and we did get lucky on some occasions.

Juventus proved once again that we're hungry, despite all the past wins.

“At times the team was too stretched looking for vertical balls, on which Inter are very strong, so we'll have to train that.

“We conceded too much space between the lines and that's what caused us problems, but we regrouped when we had the ball and we did much better in the second half.

“We gave an important shove to Inter in the Scudetto race, but Napoli are definitely the team that can cause us most problems."
