Mazzarri: 'Napoli more dangerous'

Walter Mazzarri feels Napoli “were the more dangerous side and will go to the Madrigal to play our game.”

The Partenopei were held to a 0-0 draw by Villarreal in the first leg of the Europa League Round of 32.

“The behaviour of my players was exceptional,” said the Coach. “We created three or four really clear-cut chances, above all Edinson Cavani's header just before half-time and Ezequiel Lavezzi's shot after the break.

“We must take into account the strength of our opponents. I will not give a percentage on our chances of getting through.

“We will go to the Madrigal to play our game, just as we did this evening. Napoli were the more dangerous side.

“If Cavani had scored, then the match would've taken a very different turn. There might've been a penalty for Borja Valero's handling offence, but that would be going into a very complex debate.”
