Higuain warms up with first goal at San Paolo on Saturday.
Napoli duo Gonzalo Higuain and Blerim Dzemaili insist they are ready for Dortmund, but know it will be a tough game in their Champions League opener.
The Partenopei geared up for Wednesday’s clash with a third consecutive Serie A win on Saturday night, defeating Atalanta 2-0 at the San Paolo.
Higuain was again on target, his first goal at home for his new club, and believes that he is settling in well in Naples since his arrival this summer.
“I am very happy for the goal and satisfied to have given my fans a moment of joy,”he told Sport Mediaset as quoted by Football Italia.
“The rapport with Rafa Benitez is ideal, as we work well together and hope this is on the beginning, because we want to aim high.”
“We have to stay calm and enjoy the victory over Atalanta. We’ll talk about Dortmund the day before the game,” he concluded.
Meanwhile, team-mate Dzemaili believes that Napoli should not feat their German opponents come Wednesday night, as they are more than capable of beating any side in Europe at home.
With Benitez replacing Walter Mazzarri this summer, many believe that Napoli will be a much improved side in Europe this year, although they have been handed a difficult group.
“We are not afraid of Borussia Dortmund,” the Swiss international told Sky Sport Italia.
“They are an excellent side, but we are aware that we can beat anyone at the San Paolo. They are in good shape and won 6-2, but we want the victory.
“It is a very difficult group, but we will give it our all to reach the last 16,” he added.
The other game of the group sees Arsenal travel to Marseille, with all four teams harbouring realistic hopes of making it through to the knock-out stages.
