Manchester City midfielder Nigel de Jong hopes Tuesday's crucial Champions League clash at Napoli passes without a hitch on and off the field.

City can clinch a place in the knockout stage of Europe's elite competition with victory over their Group A rivals at the San Paolo Stadium. Yet anything less would give Napoli a chance and leave City with the daunting task of having to beat Bayern Munich in their final game to guarantee progress.

The atmosphere in Naples is likely to be intimidating and De Jong said: "There is going to be an intensity because they are fighting for the last chance. Everybody knows the stories about Napoli and their fans. It is going to be an exciting game."
