Napoli coach Spalletti: Eintracht Frankfurt a tough challenge

Napoli coach Luciano Spalletti says there'll be no underestimating Eintracht Frankfurt.

Napoli have drawn the Germans in the Champions League round of 16.

Spalletti said, “Every draw is tough at this level, although we are pleased that we have avoided PSG. Eintracht Frankfurt are still the holders of the Europa League, which is the second-biggest competition in Europe, and they're on the up as a team.

"It certainly won't be easy."

Napoli have faced Eintracht Frankfurt twice in the past, back in 1994 in the UEFA Cup Round of 16. The Germans won both legs 1-0.
