Rafa Benitez satisfied after Lazio draw


Napoli coach Rafa Benitez was satisfied with his side's away draw against Lazio in the Italian Cup.

In an entertaining game of football with plenty of goal-scoring opportunities, the Partenopei registered a very important result after Manolo Gabbiadini cancelled out Miroslav Klose's first-half strike.

Napoli will host Lazio for the second leg on April 8.

"It was a very intense game of football, it reminded me of the atmosphere in the English Premier League," Benitez said.

"I am satisfied with the performance of the squad, they scored after we made a mistake but overall we created chances to score goals.

"We should have taken advantage of created opportunities to score more goals but I am satisfied with the behaviour of the lads, they kept their focus and did well after the defeat against Torino.

"[Rotation?] Everyone has to play and those who started the game as well as those who were involved later on did well tonight.

"This is our objective because we have many games coming up, so many that I can't count them all!"
