“The Coppa Italia is certainly one of our objectives, especially as we’ve come this far in the competition already,” Bastoni told Rai Sport.

“There is a great deal of enthusiasm around the team after the derby, but we mustn’t make the mistake of underestimating this match.

“We know Napoli are a great team and we have to be on our toes, because it really would be stupid to take the wrong attitude this evening.”

Lorenzo Insigne is only on the bench due to injury, so Dries Mertens and Jose Callejon start, but it’s not clear if Eljif Elmas or Piotr Zielinski complete the trident.

“We’re ready to face any system that Napoli throw at us, as they have many talented forwards.”
