Napoli will host Spartak Moscow at the Estadio Diego Armando Maradona on the second matchday of the Europa League, Thursday (30/9/2021) night WIB. Il Parteinopei face this match with a very good trend.
They are unbeaten in all competitions this season. Napoli top the Italian League standings with 18 points after sweeping their first six games with a win. Meanwhile on the first matchday of the Europa League, Luciano Spalletti’s men came back from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Leicester City.
Even though his team is in good form, Napoli captain Lorenzo Insigne doesn’t want to think about the Naples team’s progress in the Europa League. According to him, Napoli’s current focus is to give the best in every game.
“It’s still too early to say how far we will go. We have to enjoy this moment, be calm and prepare for each game in the best way,” Insigne said, quoted by Football Italia .
“We want to go as far as possible in all competitions and the Europa League is a competition we are very concerned about.”
Insigne does enjoy playing in the Europa League. However, he also does not deny that Napoli is still hurt by failing to finish in the Champions League this season.
This happened after Il Parteinopei only finished fifth in Serie A this season. He is determined to immediately bring Napoli back to the Champions League next season.
“It still hurts us not to be in the Champions League. Last year we should have done it, we didn’t and we are still angry,” explained the 30-year-old winger.
“First of all, we will try to get into the top four. Last year we lacked something. Spalletti knows our strengths, the quality in our squad and he is working for this,” he said.
