It kicks off on Saturday at 17.00 UK time (16.00 GMT), click here for a match preview.
“Anything is possible in football. We can only give 100 per cent and then see what happens, but if we want to have a chance of achieving that result, we’ve got to put in a great performance,” said the Coach in his Press conference.
“Napoli have great technical abilities and lately have created a great deal without taking their chances. They have improved considerably in defence, though.
“We have to feel enthusiastic at facing Napoli, otherwise it’d be stupid. It’s the start of another run of fixtures and we hope to do well.
“It’s not easy against these top teams, because if you defend too deep, they can score goals by breaking through even small spaces. If you are aggressive and attack them higher up, you leave spaces at the back. Both options have advantages and disadvantages.”
Juric was tight-lipped on who he would choose upfront, insisting only that there were “many alternatives,” but Daniel Bessa and Emmanuel Badu are not yet available.
