In Serie A, according to Sarri, Juventus no longer has a match. While, Manchester City have shown their maturity to win the annual trophy.
“In Serie A, there is no rival for Juventus. When I used to say that, people thought I was only protecting myself, but now they have skyrocketed. This season, there are two candidates to win the Champions League: Juventus and Manchester City.”

Juventus brought four new top ammunition in the transfer market last summer, they started the campaign this season with 10 consecutive wins in all competitions, two of which were in the European Champions League. Whereas Manchester City just packed one victory at the annual event.
