Iconic Zoff on Inter vs Napoli, Osimhen and Juventus Title Chances

Legendary Italian shot-stopper Dino Zoff, who once donned the colors of the Partenopei, expects the clash between Inter and Napoli to not decide the Scudetto race. He also revealed his thoughts on Juventus’ chances in the title challenge, saying ‘three points open a thousand possibilities’.

Speaking to Radio Kiss Kiss (via FCInterNews), the iconic goalkeeper explained his thoughts clearly.

When quizzed whether the Napoli-Inter encounter will be a ‘Scudetto’ match, he said: “Not at all. Certainly if the victory is on one side it will perhaps be more decisive. The match is difficult for both. The end result may be different”.

Juventus sit eight points behind league leaders Inter and seven behind Napoli and Milan. He believes it will be difficult, but not impossible for the Bianconeri to win the famed title.

On whether the his former club have chances to narrow the gap to the top three teams:

He said: “The three points open a thousand possibilities, but I see those three (Inter, Napoli and Milan) in front, it’s more difficult for Juve. The three in front can lose points but they are always three. We need to see the health that the new signings who have already done well bring. But it’s a duty remain in the top four for Juve. Winning the Scudetto for them seems not impossible, but difficult.”

Finally, Zoff parted with his opinion on Napoli’s Nigerian marksman Victor Osimhen, who only just returned to playing ways after a facial injury.

“He is undoubtedly an important component and has always behaved great. The only risk is to sit on our laurels with the returns of the players from the African Cup. They are undoubtedly important players but you have to be careful. You don’t have to. let your guard down. I’ve always said difficulties, I wouldn’t want him to sit on his laurels,” he commented.

Inter visit Naples in search of a victory to extend their lead over Napoli and Milan, whereas the Partenopei seek to take advantage of the Nerazzurri’s narrow defeat at the hands of city rivals Milan a week ago.
