Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis is looking forward to Friday's meeting with AS Roma.

Roma and Napoli are first and second on the Serie A table.

"I expect a civil game and based on sportsmanship, both on the terraces and in the field," De Laurentiis told Rai Sport.

"I call on the Napoli fans to be as extraordinary as usual, whatever happens, whether we win, lose or it is a draw.

"I am for football as the highest expression of sport and the highest expression of culture that every city carries within itself the colours of their team.

"In the colours of my team - this great blue - I would like and hope that this is a beautiful game."
