Ezequiel Lavezzi feels Champions League qualification is on after Napoli's 3-0 thrashing of Lecce.

"We know that we are doing very well," he grinned after the triumph. "There is a long way to go, we just have to continue like this. Our objective is a place in the Champions League, we cannot deny it."

Lavezzi also told Azzurri fans: "I want to stay at Napoli, that is the truth of the matter. What was written in the papers is not what I think.

"I am happy here and I do not understand why on earth I would want to leave."
