Rafa Benitez on Trabzonspor, confirms Gonzalo Higuain will start


Coach Rafa Benitez says Napoli are determined to bounce back from Saturday's disappointing defeat at Palermo in the Serie A.

The Partenopei were in devastating form before the 3-1 away defeat at the Stadio Renzo Barbera and the Spaniard says the Europa League game against Trabzonspor is a good opportunity to get back on winning terms.

"From now on all games in the Europa League are important," Benitez said.

"I know Trabzonspor, they play with a lot of intensity and have a number of quality elements in their squad.

"[Carl] Medjani was with me when I was at Liverpool, he's a very good player who will be eager to impress, just like all his team-mates.

"We want to bounce back after the defeat against Palermo. I was angry on Saturday but I took some positives out of the game. We're doing well and we can immediately get back on the right track.

"[Mariano Gonzalo] Andujar will start in goal, he needs to play. Rotation will be adopted, Henrique could be back in the defensive department and [Gonzalo] Higuain will play because he's suspended for Monday's game [against Sassuolo]."
