'Roma ready to stop Napoli'

Claudio Ranieri claims Roma are ready to stop Napoli in tomorrow's Derby del Sole at the Stadio Olimpico.

Roma currently lie seventh in Serie A and need to bounce back after last weekend's 5-3 defeat to Inter at San Siro.

"We will go through another beautiful match, an important one against a great team," Ranieri said.

"We don't feel inferior to Napoli. We are very motivated. The best team will win"

Asked about Roma's problems in defence where Philippe Mexes and Nicolas Burdisso are suspended, he replied: "I have always said that systems don't win football games, players do.

"I expect a very difficult game. Napoli are where they are because they deserve it. Away from home, they don't do as well, but they know how to counter and to exploit the spaces."
