Rafa Benitez on the Milan game and avoiding Liverpool in Monday's draw


Napoli coach Rafa Benitez says his team needs to be fully focused on the job when they face Milan tomorrow.

The Partenopei impressed on Thursday in the Europa League as they moved on to the next round of the competition but will have to be at their very best against Filippo Inzaghi's side on Sunday night.

"At the San Siro it will be a game between two quality teams," Rafa Benitez told Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli.

"We know how important this game is and we know how technical the opposition is. But we have to focus on our own game, to do on the pitch what we worked on during training.

"Milan are quality and a very good overall squad. But we also have quality players and I believe individual players could make the difference.

"[In training] we tried Henrique and [Giandomenico] Mesto [in the Christian Maggio role], we will understand in training the best option for this role.

Asked how far his Napoli team can go in the domestic league, Benitez said: "We should not focus too much on what is going on around us.

"I say that we can end third or even higher if we play at our best, it depends on how we perform. If we do what we're capable of doing, then yes, we can aim for the high places. I believe in this team and I'm sure we will improve our position in the table."

Meanwhile, the Spaniard hopes to avoid Liverpool when the Europa League draw will be made on Monday.

"It would be nice to meet so many friends but I don't want to be drawn against a club where I have so many nice memories. If I had to choose I would pick them for the final."
