thumbnail Hello,

The Partenopei's trainer is feeling positive ahead of his side's final game of the season and also claims Ezequiel Lavezzi is focused on the club despite transfer speculation

Napoli coach Walter Mazzarri has declared that "anything can happen" as the club continue their search for the third and final Champions League spot.

The Partenopei were in pole position to gain entry into Europe's elite competition until their surprise 2-0 defeat to Bologna last weekend saw Udinese leapfrog them.

Mazzarri's men need a win against Siena and will be hoping Catania beat Udinese while Lazio fail to pick up three points versus Inter; something the coach believes is within the realms of possibility.

“We must be wary, especially as Siena will come here to play without any particular pressure on them,” said the coach.

“Our first and only objective must be to win the match, without repeating the errors we made at Bologna, which still sticks in my craw.

“Clearly we must also hope for Catania to beat Udinese and keep an eye on Lazio versus Inter too. I am nonetheless convinced that anything can still happen.”

One man who may not be a Napoli player next season is Ezequiel Lavezzi, with the forward being linked with moves to Paris Saint-Germain and Inter, yet his trainer is confident the Argentine is focused on this weekend's match.

“He is very motivated and by now we’re accustomed to living with transfer gossip,” Mazzarri added.

“I also hope to have Walter Gargano at my disposal too, even if he hasn’t been well. We also still have to focus on the Coppa Italia Final, so will have a week to prepare for that and do our best.”

Napoli are also in the Coppa Italia final where they will face Serie A champions Juventus on May 20.
