Nap slap for Blues chances

Midweek Sport - - THURSDAY MARCH 15 - By JON WEST

NAPOLI striker Marek Ham­sik has told Chelsea that they’re lucky to have even a slim chance of stay­ing in the Cham­pi­ons League.

The Ital­ians bring a 3-1 first leg lead to Stam­ford Bridge tonight and are con­fi­dent of go­ing through.

Slo­vakia hit­man Ham­sik reck­ons the Blues could have faced an even big­ger de­feat two weeks ago when doomed boss An­dre Vil­las-boas opted to dump Frank Lam­pard and Ash­ley Cole on the bench.

He said: “Chelsea were lucky – if you make changes like they did lot­tery.”

Arse­nal al­most pulled off a mir­a­cle last week when they fell a goal short of over-turn­ing a 4-0 first leg thrash­ing by AC Mi­lan.

Ham­sik added: “If we use the same tac­tic as Mi­lan it would be a dis­as­ter.”
