We didn't start well, and we conceded this goal early. Then we even managed to score six goals. The team stayed on track and responded, showing they had the right mindsetThese are the words of Leo Ostegaard, Napoli's defender, who spoke to DAZN following the 6-1 away win over Sassuolo.We are trying to free Lobotka more, the key today was pressing. In three of the six goals scored, high attack was central to their approach, an aspect that has not worked well in recent matches. We have regained confidence in our technology – The defender confirms – The awareness of players like Osimhen and Kvaratskhelia is there, but the collective integrity that brought us the championship last year has to come back. Champions League? We will try to win every match. There are many points separating us from fourth place, but we must not stop believing in it“.

He is our best player and he will be available for the next match“.

It's a shame to lose points, we have time to recover, if this is the approach we will do well. We needed a match like this, it is important on a mental level. We went to the field quietly and calmly.
