Man City Vs Napoli, The President Surrender Before the Games
Napoli president, Aurelio De Laurentiis, admitted not sure his team can beat Manchester City. In fact, the performance of Il Partenopei was uphill.
Napoli will travel to the Etihad Stadium to challenge Man City in the Champions League Group F qualification stage on Tuesday (17/10/2017) or Wednesday morning GMT. This duels bring together two teams that trend is climbing at the beginning of the season because both dominate the domestic league.
Until the eighth week, Napoli has not been dammed. Marek Hamsik and his friends are still smooth through all odds so they sweep the victory to collect a total of 24 points and a goal productivity of +21.
Man City was so even though Pep Guardiola’s troops were tarnished by a draw. The Citizens are top of the Premier League with a score of 21 points and have a +25 goal productivity.
In addition to the proven sharp attack line, both teams also have a good defense. Napoli conceded only five times, while Man City’s new goal four times shook in the first eight games in each league.
However, De Laurentiis actually asks coach Maurizio Sarri to rest all the stars in the game Napoli later. He said that the win would be very difficult to achieve so they better focus on keeping the dominance in the Italian league because of the weekend, Napoli meet Inter Milan who occupies the second position on Sunday (22/10/2017).
“I think some of our players have to be saved in the game against Manchester City because Inter Milan are sticking closely to our points and that is just as important,” De Laurentiis told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“For me, the game against Manchester City will be a match that Napoli can not win, it would be better to serve them at the second meeting in Naples,” he said.
Until the second matchday, Napoli are still in third place in Group F standings with three points. They started this competition with a defeat against Shakhtar Donetsk before bending Feyenoord.
