Next Match: away to Lazio, December 02
Europe: UEFA Champions League (Group F)
Napoli coach Rafa Benitez hopes his players will leave behind them Tuesday's 3-1 defeat at Borussia Dortmund and concentrate on returning to winning ways on Monday at Lazio. The defeat in Germany complicated Napoli's hopes of reaching the knock-out round of the Champions League. Napoli must now beat pool leaders Arsenal at home on December 5 by a 3-0 margin or hope Borussia drop points at winless Marseille in the last group game to join the Londoners in the last 16 of the competition. "We have to think positive," Benitez said. "We will show our full potential in the future by working hard and following our technical plan. Now we must put this loss behind us and concentrating on getting back on track in Serie A." Last weekend's 1-0 defeat to Parma followed their 3-0 loss at Juventus and dropped Napoli to fourth in Serie A. Napoli will be hoping to recover attacking midfielder Marek Hamsik, who missed the midweek European game with a foot injury.
