Napoli coach Walter Mazzarri is delighted with their current form.

The Azzurri are in the Champions League places at the moment.

“I thought with the Europa League that we’d have more problems in Serie A this season, so it was difficult to predict we’d be third at this stage,” said the Coach.

They achieved that thanks to Ezequiel Lavezzi’s winner at Cagliari on Wednesday in the last kick of the game.

“We do often score in stoppages, but it’s not calculated that way. It is simply in the DNA of this squad to keep on fighting until the 95th minute. We have this mentality that leads us to take advantage when our opponents think they’ve got it in the bag.”
