He said: “It is crucial to stay in tension. Matches are won first with attitudes and determination, and then with quality.
“We must be humble; the league is important to us and we must take advantage of this home game.”

Asked if he ignores the umpcoming Champions League match, Pioli said: “Because the objective in the league is very important and because otherwise the victory in Naples would be useless.”
