Cavani is unstoppable, says Ballardini

After likening Napoli striker Edinson Cavani to "an animal" yesterday, Genoa Coach Davide Ballardini has also said he can't be stopped even with a gun.

The Uruguay international has scored 15 goals in 22 games this season and Ballardini knows him well from their time at Palermo together.

Speaking ahead of this weekend's clash between the two sides, he said: "We'll find ourselves playing a team who knows how to strike in every way. And you can't even stop Cavani if you shoot him.

"But we should be good at playing at a high rhythm in front of our own fans, pressing Napoli so as not to allow them to think.

"It's not a Play-off for a European place because they started the season with that ambition while for us it's too soon to understand what season we can have," he concluded.
