ROME, March 27 (Xinhua) -- Former Italy head coach Giovanni Trapattoni has expected a close match between Napoli and Juventus this Sunday as the current 20 point gap does not reflect their real quality differnece.

Napoli will host Juventus on Sunday in a game Trappattoni suggested that Rafa Benitez's men are not the underdogs.

"Benitez won a lot and is experienced," he said. "The Azzurri were unlucky in the match between the teams earlier in the season. But the Spanish coach knows Juve's weaknesses well."

"Juventus this year have been incredibly consistent but, in terms if the quality of their play, they are not 20 points better than Napoli," he added.

Napoli's playmaker Hamsik look forward to the clash against Juventus after they scored a morale-boosting 4-2 win at Catania on Wednesday.

"The first half of the game with Catania was all us," Hamsik said.

"We scored four goals and that decided the match. After the break Catania managed to score but in the end we controlled the game and brought the three points home," he said.

"Now I can't wait for us to take on Juventus in the match on Sunday evening," he added.
