Napoli midfielder confident ahead of Arsenal contest
Napoli midfielder Gokhan Inler believes that the Azzurri’s victory over Genoa on Saturday evening will provide the team with confidence before they square off against Arsenal in the Champions League on Tuesday.
The Partenopei had been keen to get their Scudetto challenge back on track after drawing with Sassuolo last Wednesday and Goran Pandev’s two goals ensured Rafael Benitez’ side secured three points at the Luigi Ferraris.
“After Wednesday we wanted to show how much we wanted this victory,” Inler told Tuttomercatoweb.
“On top of our high concentration, Goran was very good and he had got two great goals.
“Our game can still improve a lot, there are so many good teams in Serie A and each game can be difficult.
“The group is wonderful, the team is united and we all pull for the same goal.
“This is a victory that can help give us peace of mind for the Champions League on Wednesday. It is going to be a great game.
“The Scudetto? It is always nice to be up there but we have to keep our feet on the ground, the road is still long.”
