Hamsik: 'Napoli must reflect'

Marek Hamsik feels Napoli “need to reflect” on the reasons behind their 2-0 defeat to Juventus.

“We need to reflect on this result and also forget it, because it burns us and was only decided by a corner kick,” said the Slovak international.

“We had not come here looking for a draw, but you cannot give Juventus certain opportunities like that.

“We had done well in defence, but didn’t create many chances and to be fair neither did Juve. It was difficult to mark Andrea Pirlo, but we could’ve done more up front. We didn’t go on the counter as dangerously as we usually do.”

Napoli have not scored on their travels from open play since Week 1, a 3-0 win in Palermo.

“For now we are still pretty high up the table and started the season well. There are now two weeks packed with commitments, so we have to prepare.”
