Edinson Cavani believes Napoli can compete with Real Madrid, and gets “chills” thinking of the return leg at San Paolo.
The Uruguayan striker left the Partenopei for Paris Saint-Germain in 2013, but still takes a keen interest in the fortunes of his former side.
“I never miss a game when I can avoid it,” Cavan told Corriere del Mezzogiorno.
“I really like the football they’re playing, they’re a strong team which plays in a gung-ho manner.
“Can they win the Scudetto? I don’t know, there’s still a long way to go. That said, I can’t speak about the strength of the other teams as I only watch Napoli.
“I had the confidence of the fans and my teammates in Naples, my children still live there and they’re very happy.
“Would I go back? I’m very happy here at PSG, but anything could happen in the future. At the moment they’re so strong that they don’t need me.
“Can they compete with Madrid? Why not? I can imagine how San Paolo will be for the return leg. Mamma mia, I’m getting chills.”
