Napoli fullback Giovanni Di Lorenzo previewed the upcoming big match on Sunday with Jose Mourinho’s Roma.

Despite comfortably sitting on top of the league table, Napoli cannot afford to drop points this coming weekend. Di Lorenzo said he expects the game to be difficult in an interview with Lega Serie A.

“Roma are a great team, it will be a tough challenge because they have great players and a great coach,” said the Italian international.

“I know a lot of the guys over there because we’re teammates in the national team and I already know that we’ll have to play a tough game with the desire to bring home the result, trying to take advantage of the boost that our home crowd will give us.”

“Dybala is a champion, he has great qualities. To try and tame this type of player is very difficult but through defensive work we will try to limit him as much as possible.”
