Rafa Benitez urges focus ahead of Dynamo Moscow game


Napoli coach Rafa Benitez expects his players to be fully focused and determined to get a positive result when they host Dynamo Moscow on Thursday night.

After throwing away a two-goal lead against Internazionale last week, the Partenopei will shift their focus to the Europa League as they host Stanislav Cherchesov's men in their attempt to reach the Last 8 of the competition.

"Against Dynamo [Moscow] we want to be focused and determined because they are quality," Benitez said.

"I'm optimistic, but we have to show the same intensity showed against Lazio and Internazionale during long patches of the game.

"We will play against a squad with important strikers like Mathieu [Valbuena], [Kevin] Kuraniy and [Aleksandr] Kokorin but I believe in what my team can achieve.

"[After the Internazionale draw] I was disappointed for the draw but satisfied with the performance. We could have won, also by a large margin with the eight chances we created.

"And for 70 minutes we played good football.

"We have a style of football allowing us to produce very good performances, we won two titles and we're fighting for more."
