Juventus boss Conte eager to test himself against Napoli's Mazzarri

Juventus coach Antonio Conte is looking forward to locking horns with Napoli's Walter Mazzarri.

Conte's men have already seen off the big San Siro two this season and hope to take advantage of Napoli's difficulties balancing Champions League with Serie A commitments.

"I admire Mazzarri a great deal, but we do not fear anyone, so we're going to the San Paolo to play our game. We have studied Napoli, know their strong points and also where we can hurt them.

"Besides, I am curious to see my squad in such a difficult situation. Someone tried to compare the current team with the Juventus I played in, but that's very, very premature. That side reached five consecutive international cup finals.

"We were like today's Barcelona, even if we didn't realise it at the time. Right now this team is a work in progress and we are trying to construct something important to get back to those levels."
