Hamsik: Juventus are out of Napoli's reach

The Slovakia star has acknowledged that the Scudetto appears to be unattainable and he is now aiming for Champions League qualification instead
Marek Hamsik believes Juventus are out of Napoli's reach following the Partenopei's disappointing results throughout December.

The Stadio San Paolo side have dropped to fifth place in the Serie A table after defeats against Inter and Bologna, while they were also docked two points for their involvement in the Scommessopoli scandal.

"Juventus appear to be on their way to their second consecutive Scudetto. They are simply the strongest team and have been showing that for two years now," Hamsik told Il Mattino.

"Making it into the Champions League is now our goal. All the teams fighting for it are very close to each other and only separated by a few points.

"Nothing has really changed for us. Our objective remains to finish as high as possible in the standings. The season is still long."

Napoli are currently preparing for the away game against Siena on Saturday.
