Napoli seek to reach CL knockout stage (2)

Italian side need to beat Feyenoord, hope Shakhtar lose

(ANSA) - Rome, December 6 - Napoli are seeking to join fellow Italians Juventus and AS Roma in the Champions League last 16 when they take on Feyenoord in the Netherlands on Wednesday, although their destiny in not exclusively in their own hands.
    Napoli are third in Group F with six points from five games, three behind second-placed Shakhtar.
    They need to beat the last-placed Dutch side in their final group game and hope already qualified Manchester City defeat Shakhtar to progress.
    "It would be good financially (if we qualify), but it would also be great for the city of Naples, the players and the whole club," said Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri.
    "It would be confirmation of our good work, and I really hope we can still be in the Champions League in the new year to continue playing these great matches".
