Pre-match disruption hits Napoli

Napoli have had preparations for their Champions League clash with Manchester City disrupted this morning by a fire scare in the hotel they were staying at.

Lodging at a Naples hotel together as part of pre-match plans for Tuesday’s Group A match with Roberto Mancini’s side, some of the Azzurri players were forced to be evacuated from their rooms as a precautionary matter during the incident.

The situation was soon brought under control, but is the second disruption Walter Mazzarri’s men have had as they prepare for tonight’s match with City.

Earlier, reports emerged that Marek Hamsik’s pregnant wife had been held at gunpoint by robbers as they made off with her car. 

Napoli go into tonight’s Group A clash in need of three points to reclaim second spot in the table and stand a better chance of securing a place in the knockout stages of the competition.
