Klopp: Napoli plays like Dortmund
Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp has said that Napoli plays a similar style of football to his side ahead of the two sides' clash on Wednesday.

The Champions League finalist begins its campaign this term with a trip to the San Paolo and the 46-year-old is full of respect for his club's opponent.

"Napoli play a very lively kind of football, it's not too different from ours," Klopp told reporters. "If you look at the players at Napoli, they have a very experienced defense while their attack stands for pace and technique.

"We do not fear them, but we know what we are dealing with and have a lot of respect."

The Italian side had a busy summer in the transfer market, bringing in the likes of Gonzalo Higuain, Pepe Reina, Raul Albiol and Jose Callejon.
