Inler: 'Napoli will battle in Barcelona'

Gokhan Inler is confident Napoli will give Barcelona “a battle” in Monday's Gamper Trophy match at the Nou Camp.

The Partenopei have been invited to Cataluña for the high-profile pre-season friendly clash.

“Playing against Barcelona is wonderful and can help us understand what we can achieve this season,” Inler told Sky Sport Italia.

“Our fans will help us out there and we hope to put in a good performance to make them proud.

“We'll go to Barcelona and keep concentrated on every ball, giving them a real battle. We've got to pile pressure on them, as it's the only way to win.

“Barça have great champions, but it's the team unit that counts. We'll see what Napoli can do on Monday.”
