Walter Mazzarri knows that Chelsea are tough to beat at Stamford Bridge

Napoli manager Walter Mazzarri is taking nothing for granted when his side play Chelsea in the Champions League last 16 second leg.

The Italian club won in Naples by three goals to one last night thanks to goals from Ezequiel Lavezzi (2) and Edinson Cavani.

However, the Napoli boss knows that the Blues are a different proposition at Stamford Bridge.

“Chelsea, on their ground, they can easily score two goals,” Mazzarri said. “So, we need to go there with the right mentality.

“It’s just a shame we didn’t make it 4-1. We had opportunities with (Ezequiel) Lavezzi, (Edinson) Cavani, (Christian) Maggio, and we should’ve taken them.”
