Rome:

Napoli coach Walter Mazzarri claimed he has no interest in Saturday's Milan derby as he tries to keep his side hot on the heels of the top two in the Serie A title race.

While all the focus this weekend would be on proceedings at the San Siro, third-placed Napoli know they will go second if they beat Lazio at home on Sunday.

And unless Milan were to beat Inter, Napoli will only be a point off top if they do win.

It means Mazzarri is shutting out the Milanese bonanaza and focussing on matters at hand.

"I'm not interested in anything. I've got very little interest in the result between Milan and Inter," he said.

"We need to do what we have to do and at the end of these last eight matches, we'll add up the points."

But first they must see off a Lazio team who led Serie A for much of the first half of the season and although they recently dropped out of the top four, still harbour hopes of securing Champions League football next season.

Plus they beat Napoli well in Rome earlier in the season, although Mazzarri believes they are actually more dangerous on their travels.

"Lazio are having a great season and they're actually more fearsome away from home," he said on the Sunday lunch-time kick-off.

"Tomorrow I want to see us fired up with adrenaline and helped by our fans.

"We need to be clam and free of tension against Lazio."
