Inter Coach Leonardo Expects Tough Coppa Italia Quarter-Final Clash At Napoli

Leonardo doesn't know what the picture might be at Napoli when Inter drop in for the Coppa Italia fight.
Inter coach Leonardo is bracing himself for a turbulent Coppa Italia quarter-final on Wednesday as Napoli stand in the way.

The Brazilian hopes his players overcome the distress absorbed against Udinese at the weekend, but he is aware Napoli won't be there to make up numbers.

"In their last games Napoli have done very well, even against us. Playing at the San Paolo is something different. The fans are very passionate," Leonardo told the press.

"It will be a tough game as they are a team in form. We want to do well in the Coppa Italia and we see this as an important game."

The Nerazzurri have been leaking goals at the back, a cause for raised concern from the coach.

"Too many goals conceeded? Most of them have been off rebounds," he said.

"We have to follow up the actions, especially on free-kicks."
