Rudi Garcia on the title race and completing the double


Roma coach Rudi Garcia believes the Serie A title race will go to the wire this season.

Internazionale and Milan both enjoyed a healthy start to the new season but the Frenchman believes other teams will also fight for the title.

"Let's also not forget Napoli that has been fighting at the top for the last two seasons and Fiorentina," Garcia said on Saturday.

"There are many strong teams in the Italian league and this is good for the fans. It's always nice to see many teams fighting at the top but clearly we only have to focus on our games.

"We have to fight until the very end, this is a long marathon and [tomorrow] we will do our best to have nine points out of nine.

The Giallorossi were in sublime form in mid-week and are considered by many as favourites to win both the Italian Serie A and also the Champions League.

But Garcia disagrees.

"The nice win over CSKA [Moscow] did not change our underdog status [in Europe]," the manager explained.

"[Manchester] City and Bayern [Munich] are favourites but this is not the time to talk about the Champions League or else my players will be mad at me.

"Our objective is the Serie A, to qualify for the Champions League, so we have to finish in the first two places."
