This Monday, Napoli, like all the other teams still in the running in the Champions League, will find out who their opponents will be for the rest of the competition. Walter Mazzarri was asked which team he would like Napoli to face. But Mazzarri was evasive, indicating that he would only talk about it if the opposition were to draw.
Napoli finished second in the C behind Real Madrid, and are likely to face Bayern, Manchester City or Barcelona in the Round of 16. When asked about his preference, Walter Mazzarri did not give a concrete answer. However, the Italian coach did say that he would tackle the question if the Azzurri were to draw. “To be on the safe side, I won’t say anything, but when the opponent draws, we’ll talk about it. For us it’s already a satisfaction to be here, we can make a good impression,” Walter Mazzarri told DAZN.
