Mazzarri: Juve match not decisive

Napoli boss Walter Mazzarri has claimed that Friday's match with Juventus 'will not be decisive' in terms of the title race.

The Partenopei host Antonio Conte's men at Stadio San Paolo tomorrow, and the 51-year-old Azzurri Coach has insisted that the game will be 'special' but won't decide who wins the Scudetto.

"It is not a decisive game for the title,” he told a Press conference. “After this there are 11 other matches.

“It is definitely a special game for Napoli and Naples as a city, but it will not be decisive.

“We have spent 20 years not reaching the top level of Italian football, but for the last three years we've been reaching the upper echelons – and that is already a success.

“Unfortunately this is not said a lot, and I would like to remind the fans.

“Juve have great quality. We have not had much time to prepare for the game but we will still try to play our best.”
