Cannavaro: 'Juve are beatable'

Fabio Cannavaro has played for both Juventus and Napoli, so tells his hometown club “the Bianconeri are beatable.”

On Friday evening the top two go head-to-head in a Scudetto showdown at the Stadio San Paolo.

“I expect a tough game, because Juve never give in and they’ll make it very difficult,” Cannavaro told Radio Kiss Kiss.

“Napoli must prove they have grown, that they can play these games and send important signals. They are coming off some not great performances and people expect a lot.

“There is everything they need to do well in this match, because facing Juventus really boosts your motivation.”

His younger brother, Paolo, is the Napoli captain, but Fabio won’t be in the stands of the San Paolo.

“I’ll be watching in Dubai. Napoli should not be afraid, because the Bianconeri may be strong, but they are beatable.

“It should not be seen as the game of the year or the encounter that can save a season. It ought to be considered a match that can give them the fire to push forward till the end. Anything is possible at the San Paolo.”
