Nothing to turn
Politano, Lozano and Rrahmani are also available and the only one unavailable remains Osimhen, moreover close to returning. He will play instead of him Simeonewith Raspadori ready to relieve him during the game. “There will be room for both of them and perhaps who will come off the bench will be decisive. A tour de force of 12 games in 42 days awaits us and to do well it will be important to enter into this order of ideas: there are no owners and reserves”, he added. Spalletti is clear, but against Turin he does not seem willing to resort to the turnover. “Our line-up will not differ much from the one we have used so far”. The only doubt is therefore on the right wing, with Lozano hoping to have a chance. The coach knows it will be a difficult match against Juric. “He and his teams are bad customers, they know how to defend themselves very well, but we want to win and we have clear ideas on how to try, making the ball run.”
Spalletti had a thought about Maria Sole Ferrieri Caputi’s Serie A debut. “I like to believe that we only waited until 2022 because so far there were no other women ready to referee at this level.” But the head of the Napoli coach is only on Turin. “We are up there and we want to stay there, my team is ready to restart after the break. I am convinced that we will do well”.
