Carlo Ancelotti says Napoli have no intentions of sitting back when they face Liverpool at Anfield in the Champions League on Tuesday evening.
The Reds face a mighty task as they look to make amends for three away defeats in the competition to seal qualification to the last 16.
Jurgen Klopp’s side will progress to the next stage with either a 1-0 win or a victory by a margin of two or more goals.
Having watched his side beat Liverpool 1-0 at home in October, Ancelotti plans on taking the game to the hosts.
He told the Napoli club website: “I have lots of memories of Anfield – my last one is a good one because I won the title there with Chelsea.”
“It’s going to be a tough, exciting match. We’ll go there and play our usual game. It would be counter-productive to try and park the bus. Besides anything else, that’s not how we play.”
“We’ll try to boss the game and I’m sure the lads are ready and fired up to give their absolute all. We’ll go there with an attacking mindset.”
Liverpool were admittedly poor in their loss at a hostile Stadio San Paolo, failing to get a foothold in the game and struggling to match Napoli’s intensity throughout.
In the rare moments Klopp’s men were able to orchestrate something in the final third, a lack of conviction hurt them.
On a European night under the Anfield lights and an unlikely deficit to overturn, it’s impossible to write Liverpool off.
