Portuguese international Rolando spent last season on loan at the Stadio San Paolo and admits that following Napoli's Champions League exit, they will be out to prove a point.
"I don't think they'll be demoralised," he told Inter Channel. "They know they did extremely well in their group. It's the first time a team has finished with 12 points and not qualified, but they're aware of how good they are and they'll want to prove that against us. It won't make any difference to us though because we're determined to play our own game.
"It will be really hard because Napoli are having a great season. It's always tough at the San Paolo, but we're going there to try and play our game and we'll see what happens.
"The crowd is amazing and makes it difficult for the opponents. I saw what it was like last year and that's why I say it won't be easy, but we're confident about our chances."
Inter are currently fourth in the Serie A table, four points behind Napoli in third place.
