Miha: 'Performance over result'

Sinisa Mihajlovic has looked ahead to Fiorentina's trip to Napoli, and spoken of the importance a good performance has this weekend.

Miha was talking to the club's official site ahead of their trip to Naples, where he will look to improve a poor away record to the Azzurri. Fiorentina have only won one of their last eight games against Napoli in all competitions at the Stadio San Paolo.

"It will certainly be an important game, Napoli at home will go the distance. Although, it is still too early to make judgements.

"Mazzarri's team will be fresher because on Wednesday he made several changes. I am convinced that we can interpret the game in the best way."

The former Lazio and Inter defender then went on to talk about Napoli's title credentials, and what he is prioritising from Saturday evening's games

"Yes [they can challenge for the Scudetto], they have very strong players. One second you see Cavani in one area attacking, the next second he is in the other area defending.

"[Our] performance is undoubtedly more important. Playing badly and winning three points is a priority, but it provides problems for the rest of the season.

"I still have doubts over our [starting line-up]. I am wondering how to get the personality I see in training into our play.

"Our objectives? We have what it takes to reach the Europa League."
