Napoli director Cristiano Giuntoli explained Carlo Ancelotti’s tactics against Paris Saint-Germain and appreciates “a great champion like Edinson Cavani.”

President Aurelio De Laurentiis praised Cavani before the game and said he’d gladly welcome the Uruguay international back to the Stadio San Paolo.

They were then pictured on the official Napoli Twitter account hugging. Does this mean there are talks for Cavani?

“I don’t think this is the right place. Obviously, we appreciate a great champion like Cavani,” the director of sport told Sky Sport Italia.

Once again, Ancelotti has shaken things up tactically with Nikola Maksimovic rather than Elseid Hysaj and Fabian Ruiz for Piotr Zielinski.

Is it a 4-4-2, 4-3-3 or 3-5-2 formation?

“In my view, the Coach wants to make the most of Thiago Silva’s absence, so hopes for some distractions in their defence. He intends to have three at the back in possession, pushing Mario Rui further up, so Fabian Ruiz helps to cover.

“We hope to see the same kind of performance and of course result that we enjoyed against Liverpool.”
