Napoli's Chelsea meeting the 'match of the season' says Hamsik

Napoli star Marek Hamsik feels that this week's Champions League meeting with Chelsea is the club's 'match of the season'.

The Azzurri host the Blues at Stadio San Paolo in the Round of 16 first leg tomorrow night and Slovakian midfielder Hamsik is excited about the big European clash against a club that some people believe are in a crisis.

"It will be a great game. It's the match of the season for us. The return of the Coppa Italia semi-final against Siena is obviously important as well, but the Champions League is fascinating," Hamsik told Corriere dello Sport.

"It will be a real treat for our fantastic fans, and for the team itself."

He added: "Chelsea in a crisis? That's just something that the newspapers write. They have won only one of their last six games, though.

"It could be a favourable situation, but we have to be careful. Chelsea are a big team with some great players. We want a good result and will do our utmost to achieve just that."
