Sarri: Napoli must take initiative

Maurizio Sarri has urged Napoli “to play our own game” when they face Benfica in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Napoli began their Champions League campaign with a 2-1 win at Dynamo Kiev a fortnight ago, but Sarri is expecting a tougher task than usual at the San Paolo for the visit of Portuguese champions Benfica.

“It’ll be a very difficult match, so we must go on the pitch with great determination,” the Coach told Mediaset Premium.

“It’s a delicate game, so we have to do what we usually do. We always want to play our own game.

“I hope the game pans out that way because it’ll be better suited to our characteristics.”
