Antognoni: 'Contain Napoli attack'

Fiorentina club manager Giancarlo Antognoni hopes the makeshift defence can contain a “fearsome Napoli front line.”

It kicks off at 17.00 GMT, click here for the line-ups and LIVEBLOG.

“We’re a bit strapped for options in defence, as we are missing three important players. The replacements will give their contribution, even if Napoli have a fearsome front line,” the club manager told Sky Sport Italia.

“It’s not just about containing the forwards, but the whole team, as Napoli play flowing football from the back.

“We’ve got to stay in the race for Europe and need results to keep that going. We’re chasing some of the sides thanks to a few too many draws, but are trying to make up for lost time.”
