Maurizio Sarri, Napoli coach
Dynamo have not been lucky but they have played very well, especially away. They lost 1-0 in Lisbon but missed a late penalty; in Istanbul they earned a good draw. We cannot make the mistake of underestimating a very strong side. Dynamo are not only Andriy Yarmolenko – they have several top players. As for us, our performances have been consistent but we have made some strange mistakes that have cost us results. When you play well and don’t win games, it can be demoralising – but the players have not given up.
Serhiy Rebrov, Dynamo coach

Reporter’s view: Paolo Menicucci (@UEFAcomPaoloM)
Napoli can make it difficult for any team at the Stadio San Paolo they have conceded five goals in their two Group B home games. The Partenopei will need to tighten up against a Dynamo side who let in only one in each of their away matches at Beşiktaş and Benfica. Napoli, however, have enough attacking talent to remain favourites, especially considering Insigne this weekend ended his goal drought.
