Mesto “Not Afraid” of Roma

Napoli defender Giandomenico Mesto reiterated today that his team are not afraid of Rudi Garcia’s men and that they should look to their 3-0 victory in the Coppa Italia as inspiration for the match on Sunday.

“Napoli-Roma? I do not need many words to describe the importance of this match. Myself and the other guys have always given our best and we will do so again on Sunday. The challenge with Porto? I’ll try to deal with Roma first as best I can then we’ll talk about Porto. I think about each match given how important they are. The semi-finals of the Coppa Italia? I remember the first leg match and the league at the Olimpico very well, I was in the field, and the Giallorossi were never able to really crush us. The games are sometimes decided by episodes. I hope we repeat the performance in the second lef of the Coppa Italia tie. We are aware of our strength, we know our value and we have never been afraid of Roma.”
