Fabio Cannavaro has issued a warning to former side Napoli not to “lose their heads in any situation” at Anfield tonight.

Ancelotti’s men will advance to the Last 16 of the Champions League if they avoid defeat to the Premier League leaders, and their former defender offered some advice.

“They have a good team, even if Anfield is a tough place to go,” Cannavaro told Football Italia

“They need to put in a great performance to win the three points. Napoli have the chance to do it, they must have the right peace of mind and not lost their heads in any situation.”

Zidane advised to sign Sterling ahead of Hazard

With Raheem Sterling currently in red hot form, Chris Sutton has advised Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane to make him the primary transfer target...

“To get out (from Anfield) unscathed, players will have to not lose their heads and play every moment knowing that the match will last until 95 minutes.

Inter could also reach the Last 16 tonight, with Juventus and Roma already qualified – is Italian football improving?

“Looking at the league, no, because Juventus are still dominating. The teams have grown in Europe though, maybe they’re more equipped for Europe than Serie A.
