Sannino: 'Face Napoli without fear'

Chievo Coach Giuseppe Sannino is confident they’ll “face Napoli without fear” this evening. “We can upset the odds.”

“As far as the media are concerned, the result is beyond doubt, so our objective will be to show we can upset the odds,” said Sannino.

“We want to make life difficult for our opponents and do well on our home debut of the season, as we’re eager to impress our fans.”

Chievo began the campaign with a creditable 0-0 draw away to Parma, while Napoli thrashed Bologna 3-0.

“Napoli have changed a lot over the summer and have great qualities. They’ve got everything it takes to win the Scudetto.

“As for us, we will have to suffer and fight to the last day for Serie A safety.”

Dario Dainelli is still out injured in defence.
