Interviewed by Radio Kiss Kiss, former Napoli striker Roberto Sosa spoke about Napoli on the eve of their match against Lazio: “Although they no longer have big goals to reach [title out of reach, Champions League spot secure], Napoli has to honor the remaining matches from here to the final of the Coppa Italia. Unlike Simeone, who has coached Atletico Madrid for years and could build the team to his liking, Benitez has only been in Naples for a matter of months and has just begun his revolution in the squad and the mentality of the players.”
“Higuain? I’m convinced he can get to 20 goals in the league. The Coppa Italia is an important trophy that would allow the azzurri to challenge Juventus for the Super Cup in August,” he concluded.
Napoli currently sit in 3rd place and final Champions League spot in the Serie A table, 12 points off 2nd place AS Roma and a whopping 20 off league leaders Juventus. They face Lazio tonight, and both will be fighting hard, as if Lazio wins they will leapfrog Parma and Inter into 5th place and a Europa League spot.
