'Roma-Napoli won't be decided tonight'

Marcelo Lippi is confident that tonight’s Coppa Italia clash between Roma and Napoli will a tight affair.

The Giallorossi host the Partenopei in the first-leg of their cup semi-final this evening, and the former Coach of the San Paolo outfit believes that the game won’t be decided tonight.

“Surely it’s not going to be a game that’s resolved at the Olimpico,” he told reporters. “It’ll be decided over two legs.

“To be, Roma seem to be in a better state than Napoli, but you never know what’s going to happen because they are both two great teams.

“I want to congratulate Garcia for the work he is doing at Roma. The results are there for all to see. They play great football and you can see that the lads are united.

“The Scudetto? Well, Juve are extraordinary.”
