Napoli's Marek Hamsik believes his side's serene progress in the Europa League is a boost for their hopes of winning the Serie A title.

Walter Mazzarri's side are assured of second place in Group F, behind Ukrainian side Dnipro, after winning three of their five games in the continental competition.

And Hamsik is pleased that, with nothing resting on their final game against PSV Eindhoven next week, they can now focus on domestic tests against Pescara, Inter Milan, Bologna and Siena before the winter break.

Napoli lie second in the league table, two points behind leaders Juventus and two ahead of Inter and Fiorentina.

Hamsik, clearly in confident mood, told La Gazzetta Dello Sport: "It was very important to reach the next round in the Europa League with a game to spare so we can better concentrate on the league.

"I want four wins up to Christmas, starting obviously against Pescara; a game that is easy on paper."

However, when asked about his side's bid for the Scudetto, the 25-year-old said: "I am superstitious and do not utter that word.

"We will not just be going head to head with Juventus. Inter are still in the running, Fiorentina, Lazio and Roma."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
