Hamsik pins hopes on capital omens

Napoli forward Marek Hamsik hopes that the omens are on their side as they travel to Rome to face Lazio.

The Partenopei play Vladimir Petkovic's men at Stadio Olimpico on Saturday evening, and the Slovakian international has revealed that the team are sticking to the same routine they set themselves when they won the Coppa Italia in the capital last season.

“We go back to Rome nine months after we lifted the trophy,” he told the club's official website.

“We are in the same hotel that we stayed in before the game, and we hope it has the same effect.

“We go there full of confidence, hoping that we can extend our positive momentum.”
