Fabio Capello has called on Napoli and other Serie A teams to give Juventus a good run for their money in the chase for the Scudetto.

Juve have won the Serie A title for the past seven seasons in a row, and at the halfway mark this time they’re already nine points clear, leading many pundits to declare the Serie A title race is already over.

“I don’t agree, look at the available points,” Capello insisted in an interview that was cited on Football Italia.

“Those who are chasing Juventus must not give up, Napoli and the others. The fans are used to it, the Bianconeri have been dominating for seven years, but the passion is still there.

“In Milan, it has even grown.”

The Bianconneris have made the Champions League their priority this season and with the gap in the Italian league increasing by the week, there’s no doubt they may wrap up the double.
