Miranda: ‘Higuain main threat’

Inter defender Joao Miranda says Gonzalo Higuain is ‘Napoli’s number one danger’ ahead of tonight’s Coppa Italia quarter-final.

The two sides will fight for a place in the cup semi-finals at the Stadio San Paolo this evening, with kick-off at 19:45 UK time.

The winner will face either Lazio or Juventus in a two-legged tie and the Partenopei beat Inter 2-1 in their Serie A meeting at the end of November.

“We’ll play a great match against a top opponent,” Miranda said to Rai Sport.

“At the moment the Azzurri are on top, but we’ll play on the same level.

“The number one danger is Higuain, he’s one of the best forwards in the world but their whole team is strong.

“We’ll have to be alert, but I’m an optimist and I’m sure that we’ll have a great game.

“We want to write a different story to what happened in the league.”
