Goran Pandev is looking to avenge Napoli’s 4-2 Supercoppa Italiana loss against Juventus when both sides meet after the international break.
The Naples side was beaten in controversial fashion at the start of the season as they had two players dismissed – one of which was Pandev himself – while Juventus were awarded a spot-kick, and the Macedonia international is desperate to make amends on October 20 in Turin.
“We have to go to Juventus without showing them any fear. We have shown that we can trouble any opponent. We have what it takes to beat the Italian champions,” Pandev told Tuttosport.
“We all know how our previous game against them ended. We have to make amends for that defeat.
“The Supercoppa was one big lie. I didn’t say anything to the linesman, yet I was still sent off. One thing’s certain, though, I won’t even look at one of the match officials this time.
“I now understand how to play against Juventus.”
Juventus and Napoli sit joint first in the Serie A table with 19 points from seven games.
