Pandev: Napoli hasn't forgotten about Juventus defeat

The Macedonia international still remembers their meeting from earlier this season, and is gunning for revenge when they face each other again
Goran Pandev is looking to avenge Napoli's 4-2 Supercoppa Italiana loss against Juventus when both sides meet after the international break.

"We have to go to Juventus without showing them any fear. We have shown that we can trouble any opponent. We have what it takes to beat the Italian champions," Pandev was quoted as saying by Tuttosport.

The Partenopei were beaten in controversial fashion at the start of the season as they had two players dismissed, while Juventus was awarded a spot kick to seal the win. Pandev is desperate to make amends on October 20 in Turin.

"We all know how our previous game against them ended. We have to make amends for that defeat," Pandev said. "The Supercoppa was one big lie. I didn't say anything to the linesman, yet I was still sent off. One thing's certain, though, I won't even look at one of the match officials this time.

"I now understand how to play against Juventus."

Juventus and Napoli sit joint first in the Serie A table at the moment with 19 points from seven games.
