Chelsea will start off their knockout round of champions league matches with Napoli. The Blues who have already made 10 UEFA champions league appearances, will meet the Italian team on 21st February.
Napoli over the weekend beat Chievo 2-0 and is currently in a winning mood. Chelsea will start as favorites but it is not going to be an easy match at the San Paolo for Villas-Boas’ men.
The Azzurri, Partenopei as they affectionately called, were in the same group dubbed The Group of Death which included Villarreal and in-form Manchester City.
One player who is confident about their chances against Chelsea is Naploi’s striker Edinson Cavani
“We have already sent out a message to the world: we can defeat anyone,” Cavani told Mediaset Premium.
“Chelsea must be careful with us.”
“We had a good match in terms of intensity, character and desire,” Cavani added. “We are happy, these are three important points ahead of our trip to Florence.
“This was a difficult moment, but I think we responded the way we wanted.”
