Goal scoring hero Raul Albiol insists that Napoli can still win the Scudetto, which includes a head-to-head against Juventus.
The defender hadn’t scored for over two years but headed in a José Callejón corner to earn the Partenopei the victory.
Albiol spoke to Mediaset Premium after the game and was happy with the Napoli victory.
“The last few rounds will be more and more difficult. I am happy for the win and we must continue to the end. I am happy for the goal and above all the victory, as this was a very tough game”.
The Napoli victory closed the gap with Scudetto leaders Juventus to two points and the Azzurri still have a head-to-head encounter with the Bianconeri at the Allianz Stadium next month.
“We want to try to the end and keep our chances alive. We know that Juve are strong and are working hard to compete with them. There are nine games left. If we want to win the Scudetto, we have to win all nine.
“We have to improve and keep growing, as we do every year. Juventus have won six Scudetti in a row, so to compete with them we must really step up the level and pick up a huge number of points. We are the only side competing with Juve and that shows what great work we’ve done”.
