Gli Azzurri started the season with four straight wins and will be away to Sampdoria on Thursday before hosting a struggling Cagliari in Naples this weekend. 
 
“The season is still long, but the team has quality,” Napoli manager Luciano Spalletti told DAZN following their 4-0 win over Udinese on Monday. 

“Perhaps, we lack those players who can allow us to make substitutions, keeping the team’s level high. And we need to be lasting, how many games can we play at this level? This will make the difference.

“Milan are very strong, Inter have worked well despite a couple of big sales. They brought important players in and they have a strong midfield.

“Our strength is our environment. We are overwhelmed with love that can become fuel for players," he added. 
 
Cagliari have yet to win a game this season and go into the weekend in 19th spot on the league standings following a 2-0 loss at home to Empoli.

Last season, Napoli took four points off Gli Isolani. They won 4-1 away before a 1-1 draw in Naples.
