Marcello Lippi on the exciting Serie A title race between Juventus and Inter Milan

​Former Italy national team manager Marcello Lippi firmly believes that there is an exciting title race in the works and it will be between Juventus and Inter Milan. 

Juventus who are currently managed by Maurizio Sarri are occupying the top of the Serie A log and are in contention to lift the trophy again which they have done in the previous eight seasons. 

However, Antonio Conte's Inter Milan are not too far off as they are currently one point behind the leaders after a round of 13 matches played. 

Lippi who has had a managerial stint with both sides believes that the two teams are making the Italian topflight exciting this season and further added that he is looking forward to the battle. 

'It is very beautiful and it certainly made the start of the season very interesting,' as quoted by Corriere dello Sport.

'I really think it can last until the end. In August I thought that it would be a three-way fight for the title, but Napoli will struggle to get back into the race.

'[Carlo] Ancelotti is a very good coach and I am convinced that he will improve the team. However, even if he drives them out of the difficult moment he is going through, he has accumulated too much distance to the top.'
