The Giallorossi finished an ordinary eighth last season, and the former Milan boss is keen to launch a challenge for Il Scudetto this time around.
Capello believes the race for the Italia title will be extremely close, but backed the usual suspects to fight it out for championship crown.
"We wish to have a competitive championship, considering there will be a big struggle for the title," he said.
"We want to be protagonists until the end to give satisfaction to our supporters too.
"There is a new spirit, there is a will to win and wish for revenge.
"Juventus made really good things in the pre-season, but I'll be attentive also to the others, Milan, Inter and Lazio."
Capello also underlined the importance of the close-season capture of Cristian Chivu, though the Romanian star's transfer from Ajax is still to be officially rubber-stamped, and backed the centre back to be a huge success in Italy.
"Chivu is a good guy and he's very intelligent.
"I consider him a big player that improves the technical aspect of the whole team.
"Firstly, I asked for a defender, and we reached the aim with the best on the market."
