The Rossoneri won their first Scudetto in a decade last season under Stefano Pioli, finishing two points ahead of intercity rivals and runners up Inter. Juventus recovered after a poor first half of the season and finished fourth, 16 points behind the victorious Milan. After an interesting summer transfer window, the top teams are again ready to battle it out for a chance of glory.
Speaking to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Benitez gave his thoughts on the title race this season and which teams hold the edge.
“Inter and Juventus, they’re in the front row. Then Milan is solid, impossible not to consider the champions, but the other two are superior at the moment.
Milan, on the other hand, have had a more understated summer and Charles De Ketelaere has been their most exciting arrival. Inter hope that the return of Romelu Lukaku will make the difference in the title race and Juventus have picked up known factors like Paul Pogba and Angel Di Maria to shore up their squad.
