Benitez: Napoli will attack

Rafael Benitez has promised that his Napoli side will go out an attack Borussia Dortmund tomorrow evening.

The Partenopei host last season’s runner-up at Stadio San Paolo on Wednesday in their first group stage match of the campaign.

“Napoli must play as they always play,” he told a Press conference. “We are not thinking about playing 11 men behind the ball. We want to attack and win.

“The difference between Europe and Italy though is the speed of the game. We face a club tomorrow who have had the same Coach for six years.

“It’s the first real test for us. Borussia are amongst the strongest teams in Europe, but it is just the beginning of our journey.

“We are continuing to grow though. We can do important things, but this is just the start and tomorrow we face a team that is in better shape than ever before.

“In an 11 against 11 game however, anything is possible. The fans will be decisive tomorrow.

“The Champions League final is in the future. At the moment I am focusing on the next game against one of the best teams in Europe.”
