Napoli coach Benitez confident stopping Roma juggernaut

Napoli coach Rafa Benitez is full of confidence going into tonight's clash with AS Roma.

Roma are leading the table with seven wins from the opening seven games of the season.

"Roma are a strong and dangerous team who have found the right balance," Benitez told TG1.

"It will be a difficult game for Napoli, even if we are not afraid of anyone. If we play the way we know how, then we can beat anyone.

"Garcia is a very intelligent Coach who I know well. When I was at Liverpool, I played against his Lille side and it is always very difficult to face his teams.

"Roma also have an advantage over us, as they only have to play once a week, whereas we have the Champions League and that counts for a lot.

"We haven't had the opportunity to exchange ideas since we've both been in Italy, as we just haven't had time. On Friday we will take advantage of the chance to speak."
