Lecce vs Napoli preview - Tomovic: Let our football do the talking

I have a say

Posted Sunday, May 08, 2011 by PA

Lecce will let their football do the talking as they attempt to secure their Serie A status, according to defender Nenad Tomovic.

His side head into the clash with high-flying Napoli in the final relegation place, but just one point behind Sampdoria and two behind Cesena.

A look at the form sheet is not encouraging for Lecce fans, with just one point taken from the last three games, but Tomovic believes that does not tell the whole story.

"Right now there is not much to say, we can only make our football speak for itself," Tomovic told www.uslecce.it. "We all know what our situation is and everyone has to give his best.

"The last matches we've been playing well, but we didn't succeed in gaining points, and that's what counts in the end, but we are still confident and it all depends on us."

They come up against a third-placed Napoli side who, despite having seen their title chances fade away, have had an impressive season, spearheaded by strikers Edinson Cavani, who has 26 league goals to his name, and Ezequiel Lavezzi.

"In my opinion Lavezzi has to be feared the most, even though Cavani, with his 26 goals, is dangerous too," said Tomovic.

With the title out of reach for Napoli, all that remains for them is a battle with Inter Milan for second place.

For Cavani, on loan from Serie A rivals Palermo, the only goal remaining is to avoid the qualifying rounds of the Champions League.

"Unity has been instrumental to the team this season," he said. "From the beginning I felt we all had a great desire to win.

"We never gave up and today we are aiming to make the Champions League without the preliminary round."
