Napoli striker Edinson Cavani has said that he is extremely bullish on the prospects of the club finishing in the third position in the Italian Serie A this season. Napoli have been concentrating on doing well in the Champions League this season after having qualified for the elite competition last term. Now, they have been eliminated from the competition after the epic 4-1 loss to Chelsea recently. As a result, Napoli have revealed that they will be switching their focus to the domestic league, with the main focus being to qualify for the Champions League next season.
Napoli are currently in the fourth position in the Italian Serie A table, with only one point separating them from the third placed team – Lazio. Influential striker Edinson Cavani has been the main attacking threat of the team along with players like Hamsik. He has already scored 18 goals in the league this season, which is only two behind the top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Even though many of the Napoli players are being linked with moves in the summer, Edinson Cavani has said that they are focusing only on the qualification for the Champions League. Napoli have so far taken 16 points from the last six matches they have played in the league.
“Our aim is to play in the Champions League next season and we have the potential to finish third. We hope to show in our remaining games the same determination we have displayed of late and take as many points as possible to achieve our aim. Our aim at the start of the year was to reach the final of the Coppa. We will now try to win it although it will be difficult against Juventus,” Cavani said. Napoli will also be playing in the Coppa Italia final against Juventus.
