Zielinski: 'Atalanta no easy task'

Piotr Zielinski warned Atalanta “won’t be easy” for Napoli in the Coppa Italia Quarter-Final, especially after losing to them twice last term.

It kicks off at the Stadio San Paolo at 19.45 GMT, click here for the line-ups.

“We are facing a very strong side, it won’t be easy, but we are only interested in winning and getting through to the next phase of the competition,” Zielinski told Rai Sport.

He is due to replace Lorenzo Insigne in the trident attack with Adam Ounas and Jose Callejon.

“I am a midfielder, but I can also play in attack when needed to give someone a rest. I’ve done well there lately, so it’s not an issue.”

The winners go on to face Juventus or Torino in the Semi-Finals.

“The Coppa Italia has always meant a lot to us and we want to win it, so we have to focus on getting past Atalanta first. It won’t be an easy task. Only after that will we watch Juve-Torino tomorrow and see who we’ll face.”
