Zanetti: I hope Rizzoli does better this time around

The Nerazzurri captain wishes for fair play when his team meet the Partenopei on Sunday, and hopes the officials' decisions will not play a role in determining the winner
Inter captain Javier Zanetti has stated that he would like to see referee Nicola Rizzoli perform his duties better in the upcoming clash against Napoli than he did last season in the same fixture.

The Partenopei defeated the Nerazzurri the 3-0 at San Siro in October 2011 in game in which Joel Obi was sent off in the first half. In addition to this, there were a number of other decisions by the official which were disputed by the hosts.

Zanetti hopes Rizzoli's calls will not influence the game this time around.

"Last time there were some refereeing mistakes that decided the match, so I hope that Nicola Rizzoli will do better this time around," the Argentine told Inter's official television channel.

"We are well prepared for this game and fully understand that Napoli are more than just Edinson Cavani.

"It will be a top clash and a very spectacular encounter, as Napoli are a fine team who have been challenging for the honours for several years now."

Should Inter win, they will leapfrog their guests into second place.
