Quique Setién, Barcelona coach: “We’ve prepared for the game diligently and I’m convinced we’re going to get through and compete to make it to the Champions League final. It’s going to be a tough game and we’ll have to manage it well, choose the right moments in the match. If we keep the ball we’ll give them less opportunities but we won’t rule out going direct in search of a goal because we want to win it.
Gennaro Gattuso, Napoli coach: “We know the quality of Barça and we have to play a great game both technically and tactically. We know we have to play a great game and even then that might not be enough for us. Not having won anything gives Barça more strength. It gives them more hunger. I see it that way. They are a team that have been used to winning for many years. Tomorrow we must climb Everest. Lorenzo Insigne trained with the team today, I will speak to him and the doctors but if he is not 100% he will not play.”
