Mazzarri : Napoli has changed
After a successful start Napoli are ready to host Spanish Villareal.
These two teams faced last year in Europa League , Villareal passed Napoli at 2nd round games with 2-1 and 0-0 scores.
But much changed. Napoli were not taking serious European League (even barely reached to 2nd round from the group.) and Napoli didn't have such a deep squad.
Villareal has changed to , but on negative way. They have lost some key players and didn't make enough transfers. Villareal aren't the same team of last 4-5 years.
Napoli had two impressive performances in a row against Manchester City and Milan. But after it have collected only one point at two games.
Against Chievo , Napoli have played with a mixed squad due give rest to key players, but against Fiorentina (at home) Napoli played with best possible eleven and didn't impress.
It's ''Group of Death'' and Villareal game is very important for Mazzarri's team.
Good news for Napoli that Villareal's Italian goal-machine Giuseppe Rossi will miss Napoli match.
Napoli will miss important winger Christian Maggio and midfielder Dzemaili.
