Nenad Krsticic warns “it will be difficult” for Napoli when they face Red Star at a sold out Marakana.
The Serbian side are back in the Champions League Group Stage for the first time since 1991, so there will be a red hot atmosphere in Belgrade tomorrow.
“I’m one of the few who has had the honour to play against Napoli,” Krsticic, a former Sampdoria player, pointed out in the pre-match Press conference.
“We’ll be ready, we’re very proud to be in this group. We want to play in Europe and have no intention of stopping.
“The stadium will help, there’s huge anticipation and we always know they’ll be our 12th man on the pitch.
“I know all about the atmosphere at the San Paolo but it’ll be difficult for them here. I’ve had a lot of requests for tickets, but I could’t fulfil them all.
“It’ll be difficult, because they have no weaknesses. We’ll analyse everything and try to take advantage where we can.
“The most dangerous player? Marek Hamsik, I’ll need to stick to him.”
As a former Samp player, Krsticic was also asked about the bridge collapse in Genoa.
“I immediately heard my friends from Genoa. I was on that bridge all the time, it was a huge tragedy.”
