– Type of match against Naples: “For our team it is clear to have the ball for as long as possible, to put intensity when we do not have the ball, to be serious behind and take advantage of the chances we have. They won't like having to play against us now. Let's hope they don't feel comfortable. “


– Gattuso: “I don't know how old he would be the first time I saw him when he was in the elite, in his day he played in a position similar to hers and he was a player I looked at, it's no joke that he was so many times in the national team He seemed like a great player to me and it will be nice to see him on the bench, but we are going to do our thing for the victory ”.

– Special night: “It is a special match, one more, because defending this shield is a source of pride, being able to defend it on all fields. We have a high-class rival, but we have to take him as one more. Happy with what we are doing so far and looking forward to the game to be able to stand up to it and be able to achieve victory. We are going without fear, and eager to go for victory ”.

– Keys: “We must not focus only on the defensive, because our game is based on getting the ball out and we have a leading role in the offensive field, they have a strong attack and many centers come out so we will have to play a very concentrated game, even more than what we have been doing, this is how we will achieve something good ”.

– Without relaxation: “We are all in the same boat together. We have to do our best at all times to continue advancing in the European legé. We are doing well but each game is a different world and things are going well for us, but you never know if we will do better or worse, but we are aware that we want to continue and go far in this competition. And that happens by playing a good game against Napoli ”.

– Txuri-urdin feeling: “Not having to play against a high-class rival is more special, I have been clear since I wore this shirt I feel pride, no matter the rival.”

– Without fans: “It's sad not being able to have our fans in the stands. At the moment they are going to play and we really want to. What happens due to the health situation does not depend on us ”.

– Compliments of Naples: “We have many weapons to make them feel uncomfortable and leave here empty-handed. If they are talking well d3 we are because we are doing things well, but we cannot relax because if we do it we will not do that well ”.
