Slot: 'AZ still in it with Napoli'

AZ Alkmaar coach Arne Slot admits it feels ‘special’ to still be in the running for Europa League qualification alongside Napoli and Real Sociedad.

The Dutch side earned a shock 1-0 win at the Stadio San Paolo on October 22, and host the Partenopei tomorrow at 20.00 GMT.

Napoli are now top of Group F with nine points, followed by Real Sociedad and AZ Alkmaar on seven.

“We won away 1-0 and played very well,” said Slot in his press conference.

“It’s special to be here able to say with two games remaining that we have a chance of reaching the next round, despite being in the same group as Napoli and the current Liga leaders.

“All three clubs are very close in the table right now. You can make all the calculations you like, but I am convinced that if we lose tomorrow, then we’ll be out.”
