Spalletti: “We have in front of us the team that made the last two Champions League finals”

Ahead of I Partenopei’s clash against Liverpool at Anfield tomorrow evening, Napoli boss Spalletti previewed the mouth-watering fixture in the press conference.

In the reverse match, it was Spalletti’s side who stunned the Premier League giants in a 4-1 victory in Naples, scoring three unanswered goals before the half with the use of their quick counter-attacking style.

As it stands, Napoli currently sits at the top of Group A with a total of 15 points after having won all five of there group stage fixtires, with only three points separating them from Liverpool. With the top spot at stake within the final match-week of the Champions, Spalletti hopes that his side can maintain they’re incredible run of form thus far.

While speaking to the media, as relayed by Tutto Napoli, the gaffer provided his insight of the significant match:

What is the pitfall of tomorrow’s race?

“We have in front of us the team that made the last two Champions League finals, that made a football from which all the coaches and players took news and then brought them onto the pitch within their own teams, the stadium gives a pressure of constant emotions and any clash or duel is experienced as a goal. It is a stage where all the players in the world would like to play. “

Can we say that the record-breaking Napoli was born in the first leg against Liverpool?

“They are games that trace the path because you have the best in front of you, the ones that everyone fears and consequently you get a sense of conviction and self-esteem that can help you gain experience immediately and have a character to show tomorrow night in this environment. here. But we need the quality of the players we have to be able to put it into practice. ”

Who has more room for improvement between Osimhen and Kvaratskhelia?

“We all have them, it depends on how you position yourself in the work you have to do. We have a young team, so we always hope to be good at making an increasingly important path because we need that. Everyone who faces us will put in more and more stuff and you have to be ready to always do the same things, always improving. Even top players like Osimhen and Kvaratskhelia can put something extra in it, for example Osimhen you can see that the balls that are bludgeoned on him some cleans them and makes them playable and then reattaches the spaces. Other times he went alone. Kvaratskhelia is infinite as a possibility, because someone who comes here from another country, with this naturalness and simplicity and shows all those things there, still has room for improvement that cannot be understood.”
