Ahead of the highly anticipated fixture between Roma and Napoli tomorrow evening at the Stadio Olimpico within match-week eleven of the Serie A, Napoli boss Spalletti previews the vital fixture in a press conference.
So far, Napoli have been a force not to be reckoned with within the Serie A as they stand tall at the top of the league with 26 points. I Partenopei have taken the league by storm as they are currently on a five-game winning streak and have not lost a single match within their first ten outings thus far.
Many of the Italian sides have not found the defensive mechanisms to manage Spalletti’s swift attacking playing style as his side are currently the best offensive team within the league as they possess a total of 25 goals scored in ten fixtures.
Within the media, as relayed by La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Tuscan tactician provided his insight on the fixture and its significance within the league:
“This is one of the most beautiful matches in European football, not just Italian, everyone is watching it. It is important because it makes you understand how to continue along the path. We have to field what we know how to do, we must continue to do it with even more quality and speed. They have this ability to affect with set pieces. It will depend on how much you allow them. If we keep more ball, maybe we run less risk. “
In addition, the Azzurri boss discussed Roma’s mentality and his relationship with Giallorossi gaffer Jose Mourinho:
“After so many well-played matches, now the super coach Mou arrives on him. I don’t know if they will think about what Napoli can do. We have to think about us, not about Roma. Then it is clear that he is one of the terrible ones. It is difficult for me not to appreciate the work of my colleagues. I see all the matches and I also take something from them. The more you climb you find genius on the bench and on the pitch. And José is one of them. greets you as a friend and I do the same.”
