Maurizio Sarri believes Napoli and Juventus played on the same level and his men were unfortunate to lose 1-0 to their competitors.
Napoli and Juventus looked to be heading for a stalemate, only for a Zaza strike two minutes from time to gift Juve the win.
And despite the loss and subsequently losing top spot to Juventus, Sarri believes they didn’t deserve to lose.
“It was a very even game with few chances. It’s a pity that we conceded shortly before the final whistle,” the Napoli coach said at a news conference.
“We have to remain calm. A deflected shot will not destabilise us. We put in a good performance. It’s quite rare that Juventus hardly create any chances in a home game. We could perhaps have done more going forward, but this was a good performance.
“There are very few teams in Europe that come to this stadium and are on par with Juventus, but we did just that. We conceded a goal when they were playing with just one attacker. But we have to accept the result and move on. There are plenty of positives.
“We must react right away. We have to learn from games like this in order to become a big team.”
