AC Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi believes his side is the team to beat in Italy.

The Rossoneri go into Sunday's game at relegation-threatened Cesena with a full head of steam after
Wednesday's demolition of Arsenal in the Champions League.

In Serie A, Milan are one point clear of Juventus, although the Turin outfit has a game in hand.

"We've never had a doubt about our chances to win the league title for the second consecutive season," Berlusconi said to Gazzetta dello Sport.

"We are convinced that we are superior to Juventus, without disrespecting them."

The Rossoneri, coached by Massimiliano Allegri, have certainly been impressive.

They won 3-1 last week at Udinese and followed that up with the 4-0 first-leg triumph over Arsenal in their Champions League last-16 tie.

"This is the first step," Berlusconi said. "But we have to take another step in the return leg in London next month."
