Castro: No favourites for tie

New Porto Coach Luis Castro believes there is no favourite for the Europa League tie between his side and Napoli.

The tactician took over at Estadio do Dragao from the sacked Paulo Fonseca last week and anticipates a close encounter with the Azzurri.

“This tie will we very hard-fought and I don’t think there is a favourite at this moment,” Castro said at his pre-match Press conference ahead of the game.

“I can feel that the players are very confident and motivated, but we are also conscious about the quality of our opposition.

“Our fans will be very important. They don’t play, but they make us play.

“We must be well balanced in both defence and attack.

“Both teams will play without exposing themselves, so I anticipate a very even match.”
