Edinson Cavani: 'A special match'

Equipe première

The Paris Saint-Germain forward caught up with PSGTV ahead of a return to former club Napoli in this week's UEFA Champions League encounter.

Edi, what does it mean to you to return to Napoli for such a game?
"I had three fantastic years at Napoli. I have a lot of memories from my time at the club. We're getting ready to meet them again for a special match in which both teams are in a difficult situation. It'll be a great game, because both teams need to win to get an advantage in the race to qualify. So, it'll be a special game for a number of reasons. Firstly, because we have to go there to win and then because I had a great experience there."

What do you think will be key to winning at Napoli?
"It's difficult to win at the San Paolo...It's difficult, but not impossible. It's a team that likes to go into battle, but I think we'll show that we have the level to play this kind of game. A difficult match, intense, high level...We have to play together, for each other. For me, that's the key to achieving our goals."

How is the team building up to such a test so early in the competition?
"We've played a lot of difficult and key games with Paris. With team, you pick up experience. It'll be an important match for us, because it'll be an opportunity to show that we can play together and overcome numerous obstacles."

And how do you feel personally?
"I hope to be ready, I'm doing all I can to be ready. I am just coming back from an injury, and now I want to be in top form to be able to give my all for the team and win this game."
