Napoli coach Walter Mazzarri insists that his side are ready to face AC Milan in a crucial clash for Champions League places next weekend.

Napoli coach Walter Mazzarri has insisted that his side are in good form and ready to face AC Milan in a clash between second and third in Serie A next weekend.

Goals from Goran Pandev and Blerim Dzemaili proved enough to earn Napoli a 2-0 win over Genoa tonight.

With a four-point lead over Milan ahead of their trip to the San Siro, Mazzarri has declared that his side are aware of that game's importance in the chase for Champions League places.

He told Sky Italia: "We are going through a good period of form and I was happy that we kept a clean sheet. Genoa are a quality side and we did well to dominate them.

"We will prepare with real focus, as the Rossoneri have fought back remarkably well to catch up numerous sides. I don't have to do much work firing them up for this game, as they know full well what it means.

"We already have more points than at this stage last season and are growing constantly, so it is fundamental to achieve Champions League qualification. Napoli have returned to being aggressive and determined, but above all sharp physically."

Mazzarri's men sit second in Serie A with 62 points from 31 games.
