Capello: Scudetto race is still open
England manager Fabio Capello believes the Scudetto race is wide open with seven rounds remaining.
AC Milan beat Inter 3-0 in Saturday's derby to go three points clear of Napoli at the Serie A summit. Inter dropped to third, five points adrift of their arch-rivals.
"There are still important games left to play," Capello told Gazzetta dello Sport. "The race is still open and everything has yet to be decided. Milan have a difficult calendar ahead, while there are other teams like Napoli that are doing really well."
Milan travel to Tuscany to face Fiorentina this weekend and will face Roma at the Stadio Olimpico next month. I Rossoneri end the campaign at Udinese, who are chasing a top-four finish in Serie A.
Inter, meanwhile, are still alive in all three competitions this season and host Schalke in tonight's UEFA Champions League quarter-final, first leg.
Capello believes I Nerazzurri could pay for their efforts in Europe.
"We will see what Inter do in their next games," he said. "We know that when you play on all fronts, it becomes very hard for everyone to remain competitive."
