Napoli has a shot to make it through the Europa League round. This is the case against Real Sociedad, without David Silva and Mikel Oyarzabal, with the probability of smiling with two out of three performances. So Zielinski confirms his plan to pass the round, while Gattuso maintains a low profile that he wants to strengthen his squad.

Sociedad, meanwhile, has no hope of standing by. In Naples, Nacho says he needs to win, while coach Aperribay charges it more with a “Kill or be killed” relating to the need to win in order to retain hopes of moving further.
