January 12 News Saturday morning 18 rounds of Serie A
A focus battle will be staged, when Naples will sit at home against Juventus.
The two teams are currently in the top two in the standings, and this will be a game that can affect the championship situation this season.
At the press conference before the game, Naples coach Spalletti talked about the team’s preparations, and also answered some questions that fans and the media are very concerned about.
On Allegri: Napoli can afford to lose more than Juve
If a player is only a supporting role, it is appropriate for Allegri to say such a thing, and I understand it.
However, for a team as full of champions as Juve, it is impossible to avoid the role of favorite to win.
Some investments can only be said to have received a reasonable return after winning the league title or breaking into the Champions League.
It’s no use trying to hide that Juventus won’t be satisfied with finishing fourth in the league.
About Allegri’s praise for himself
I don’t know if I’m better, but Allegri is the best because the title says it all and I salute him for the title he won.
Who will be more scared about this game
I think it’s hard to play with fear when you’re wearing such an important shirt, no one is going to be scared of this game.
Whether it is tenacity or technology, both teams have very strong players and will fight for victory. This will be a very exciting game.
About pre-match preparation
We will not listen to any rumors from the outside world, as professionals, we will show the results of hard work this week on the pitch.
About Juve’s 8-game winning streak
We will first look to cause problems for their centre-backs and then move on.
The two teams have different philosophies, with Allegri embracing the Juve motto that winning is the only thing that matters.
In Naples, we need to give our all, because people have seen Maradona play, when he wins, he shows the beauty of football, we can only go after some of that.
Now that Juventus has set sail again, they have had very good individual performances in several games. What we consider is not to lose balance in the offense.
On why scoring goals against Juventus has become difficult
They drop their front line in front of their own penalty area, which is easier to defend than pressing up.
However, we will do what we love, and we will do what the fans love.
On whether the off-field incident will affect Juve’s performance
You never know how a team is going to respond, sometimes it’s the opposite and the team becomes more united and everything off the field becomes an extra motivator and maybe it helps with the winning streak.
On how to face the challenges of tomorrow’s game
I will see if my team can achieve balance and whether those fast players can cause problems for Juve’s defensive formation.
I’m curious about this because that’s our focus.
On guarantees to Napoli fans
Since coaching Napoli, the only thing I can guarantee is dedication.
I spend 2/3 of the day thinking about football.
The fans deserve what we give 24/7, but I have to sleep or I won’t be able to work the next day.
On whether to enable Raspadori on the right
You can say a lot about a player like Raspadori because he knows how to play wide and it is not a risk to put him on the right.
On Juve’s defense
If a team is defending at full strength, it is very difficult for the opponent to get 10 chances in the whole game, because the offensive space will become more narrow, and you need to have an above-average offensive quality.
The difficulty is there, but we have the ability to play the game we want.
