The FC Barcelona will see the faces in eighth of Champions League with some entirely distinct Naples to the seen in this first-half of the competition. Carlo Ancelotti did not give with the key this course and finished being sacked, in spite of classifying to the napolitanos for the eighth. The Italian trainer had lost the credit in front of Aurelio Of Laurentiis, president of the team, and was substituted by Gennaro Gatusso, a profile of technician totally opposite to the his.

In the Naples wanted hard hand for encarrilar a season that had place very slope up in the Series To. The Juventus of Turín and the Inter of Milan had escaped in the two first places, whereas Milan, Rome, Lazio or Atalanta surpassed to a group napolitano that sailed without fixed course in Italy. To Gatusso has cost him find this course, but seems that at last it has found it after quite a lot of time in the charge.

The ex of the Milan has achieved to win two consecutive meetings in front of rivals of entity like Lazio and Juve, and his at last begin to give the feeling to be a team with capital letters. 'Rino' is endowing of character to his players and these have increasingly clear what have to do to win. For the moment, the Champions is very far in the classification (12 points), but the Europe League have it to alone four. Besides, these positive feelings arrives in a moment perfect, less than a month before the eighth of League of Champions against the Barça.

Gatusso And his technical body expect that for then the Naples was still better and can complicate him the things to the Barça. For this, Of Laurentiis has thrown the house by the window and has spent a lot of money in this market of signings of winter to reinforce his staff. They arrived two midfield players like Diego Demme and Stanislav Lobotka, and Matteo Politano, ex mediapunta of the Inter of Milan.

Reinforcements of quality to have a longer staff

Demme Arrives pertinent of the Leipzig by 10 million euros. The German has been key in the team germano these last years and could be important in the rotation of Gatusso. On the other hand, Lobotka has cost him to the Naples 24 'kilos' and comes of the Celtic of Vigo. In Balaídos did an extraordinary season the past year and him it rifaron this summer, but remained and this course has gone down a lot his level. It expects that in Italy recover the level that carried him to be considered one of the best mediocentros of LaLiga.

Besides, Politano could be a big reinforcement to play so much in the centre of the field as a bit more advanced. Antonio Conte was not him giving a lot of minutes in the Inter and the Naples has taken advantage of achieving his cession with compulsory purchase in June. The napolitanos will have to pay 19 millions, in addition to the 2,5 that have paid already. The Rome had it in his diary, but finally has finish in the region of the Campania.

With these three reinforcements, more Lorenzo Insigne, Milik, José Alley, Dries Mertens or Fabián Ruiz, the napolitanos look forward to to remount in this second half of the campaign. In Champions, know that the Barcelona is favourite, but that the same that the Rome two years ago, will have his options if they do the things well. Gatusso Is in the bench precisely to attain this and that his give the chime.
