Napoli's Inler forgets Euro draw

Napoli midfielder Gokhan Inler says his team is focussing on the league and not worrying about who they will draw in the Champions League second round.

Napoli secured their place in the draw with a 2-0 win at Villarreal last week that ensured they pipped moneybags Manchester City to second place in Group A.

They could face the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid, Cheslea or Arsenal in the draw but Inler says their focus is simply on their Serie A clash with Roma on Sunday.

"Tomorrow will be the draw for the last 16 of the Champiosn League and we'll see who we'll get but right now we're thinking only about the league," said the Switzerland midfielder.

"We all need to give our maximum to get more points in the league. As for the draw, it makes no difference to us, we need to go and get a result."

While Napoli have impressed in Europe this season, they have struggled in the league and remain down in fifth but nine points off the league summit.

They have beaten City, AC Milan and Inter Milan but lost to Chievo, Catania and Parma.
