Rafa Benitez happy with performance, wary of Torino threat


Napoli coach Rafa Benitez was delighted with his side's performance against Trabzonspor on Thursday night.

Strong of the 4-0 win in the first leg last week, the Partenopei battled past the visitors thanks to Jonathan De Guzman's fourth goal in the competition.

And the Spaniard says the win was the best way to approach tough games against Torino and Lazio.

"It was a positive game," Benitez said.

"Besides making it through to the next round I saw a number of positive aspects ahead of the game against Torino.

"Our objective after the first leg was to play a good game, with the right approach and the right mentality. We managed to do it, creating a lot of chances without conceding any.

"Torino's result at Bilbao is a confirmation that we will face a tough side on Sunday, it will be another close game. It will not be easy but we will give our 100%."
