Andrea Stramaccioni has revealed that Napoli could exploit his side's weaknesses if they are not careful.

Inter host Napoli on Sunday, and according to the Nerazzurri coach, the visitors have every chance of taking something from the game.

"If we play without caution, we could become Napoli's ideal opponents. They are strong in certain areas that could exploit our weaknesses," Stramaccioni said.

The Inter coach also pinpointed Napoli star Edinson Cavani as the main danger man for his side.

"Cavani is becoming one of the best strikers in the world. He has all the desired abilities of the perfect modern striker because he combines his talent with physicality, and he also helps off the ball," hesaid.

Antonio Cassano made his return from suspension on Thursday in the Europa League and Stramaccioni has said the side have missed the forward for a number of reasons.

"We have deeply missed Cassano, but I do not want to place too much pressure on him. He is a talented player and we also missed his strong personality," he said.
