Mazzarri not letting Scudetto thoughts distract Napoli as they increase the heat on Milan.

Napoli coach Walter Mazzarri has played down the Scudetto hype surrounding his side after moving to within three points of league leaders Milan.

A 2-0 win over Cesena on Sunday threw the Azzurri up Serie A, but Mazzarri claims the priority is not to make up the deficit or lose track of short-term aims for long-term gain.

"Our job is to take things a game at a time and it is useless to discuss the Scudetto now; this talk doesn't interest us," he told the press ahead of the Andrea Fortunato award ceremony in Rome.

"We have to think about the game against Roma as it will be a final for us and we have to get into the game with the right spirit to make us win.

"We have to continue doing well and then we will see the results at the end of the season.
