Itachi is stronger. duhh hes Uchiha. Do the math!?
No way Itachi would win against The Puppet God !
Old lady and little girl? U do remember the old lady is his own grandmother and that she was powerful ninja in her village and the older the wiser!! and the little girl you talking about was trained by tsunade, lagendery sannin.
anywho. when I was talking about the poisoned tail i didn`t ment the puppet sosari is hiding into. I ment the poisoned tails, the one in his own body that looks like a metal pipe and the other one made of something that looks like bones. and once you get hit by those your dead within 3 days.
And I remember shikamaru said something to kankuro about genjutsu, taht it only effects smell\sight\touch and hearing or something like that. he didn`t mentioned something with chakra if I remember right.

nice idea ironmaidenlive, that could also explain how he so easily put naruto in genjutsu just recently when naruto bumped into him in the forest while pursueing sasuke. naruto already knew not to look him in the eye and we never see itachi point at him either. your idea explains it perfectly...
Blah, he's probably got faster movements, better jutsu, more experience than Sakura. All he'd have to do is avoid Sasori's puppets and poison for the win and if his "normal" jutsu don't work, he's got his trump card -- Mangekyou Sharingan.
If he gets a nick, though, it'd be over for him. So the risk is pretty high.
I'm sorry, but I seriously doubt that Itachi would have used a trigger-genjutsu on Naruto from 3 years back. Face it, Naruto is just too easy to trick into a genjutsu.
I think this fight was over as soon as someone mentioned Amaterasu, because I don't care what kind of wood Sasori uses for his puppets, Amaterasu burned through a fire-resistant toad throat.
But besides that, Itachi has more experience, better jutsu, more speed, and is overall about ten times better than Sakura, if not more. Even simple differences like the fact that Itachi can use Shadow clones while Sakura doesn't and his seal speed is faster than the eye can see make a world of difference in battle. Not to mention the Sharingan's extreme motion perception and motion prediction which would make fighting puppets literally "child's play."
the interesting thing about the fight with the itachi clone is that the lines that are said when naruto was in the genjutsu are similar to those of itachi when he and kisame tried to get naruto three years earlier. of course that doesn't really prove anything but then naruto says "...it was then." but when was then? i looked at the fight from the beginning to when itachi was put in the genjutsu and naruto's thoughts don't match up with what itachi said before he put naruto in a genjutsu. with all that put together i just thought it was a possibility that itachi put naruto in a genjutsu three years earlier and then triggered it with the 30% clone. after all sasori pretty much did the same thing with yuura. maybe i'm just making something out of nothing but who knows.
@zetta and freakshow
Naruto is just referring to what Itachi did 2 minutes earlier.
