Despite Napoli's fine form in Serie A, ascending to the top of the league following a 3-1 weekend win, the Ciucciarelli boss claims that reigning champions Juventus are far superior in every way, as reported by Calciomercato.

Throughout the current campaign, Napoli have been exceeding expectations, playing an exciting brand of attacking football and becoming Serie A pacesetters in the process, as they currently lead Juventus in the league by one point.

Napoli's current success is no small feat, especially considering Juventus have lifted the last six consecutive Scudettos.

However, Maurizio Sarri is remaining realistic with his expectations as they title race between the Naples outfit and Juventus comes down to its climactic second half.

When asked of his side's chances of winning the league when compared to Juventus, Sarri said: "We cannot compare ourselves to Juventus. They are clearly superior in every way. Juve win 90 per cent of their matches. Our aim is to play beautifully. We like playing good football, enjoying ourselves and entertaining."

Since being appointed as Napoli manager in 2015, Sarri has worked to build and exciting side, capable of challenging Italy's elite and potentially claiming their first Scudetto since the 1989/90 season.

When questioned regarding adding to his squad, with emphasis on the rumours linking Sassuolo's Matteo Politano, Sarri responded saying: "It would not be right for me to talk about it. The boy played for Sassuolo 16 hours ago. 

"I don’t know whether the deal has moved forward or not, you will have to ask the sporting director. I don’t like talking about a boy who plays for another team. In my opinion he is a very good player, that’s it."

Napoli's next league game comes against Serie A strugglers Benevento at the Stadio Ciro Vigorito, with a win potentially taking them up to four points clear of Juventus
