The Partenopei host La Real in the first match after the San Paolo changed name to Stadio Diego Armando Maradona and a win for the visitors will see them leapfrog Napoli in Group F of the Europa League.

Napoli need one point to secure a place in the last 32 of the competition but Alguacil said his players are ‘super excited’ and ready to fight the Azzurri for the points in Campania.

“I have a terrible desire that the game comes, we play it, enjoy it and are able to win it,” Alguacil said, according to Football Espana.

“I see the players as super excited and convinced, and I am too. It’s a great game against a Champions League team, and if we win, we finish first in our group.

“I have felt [affiliated] with this team ever since I was little, and being able to coach such a match, and to debut the new stadium’s name of Diego Armando Maradona is an honour, although it will be ever greater if we win.

“The challenge is enormous, but I’m convinced that, if we play our game, we will be very close to winning.”
