Howe: Napoli to produce good challenge

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe is looking forward to welcoming Serie A side Napoli to Dean Court.

Napoli finished third in Serie A last season, along with reaching the last 16 round of the UEFA Champions League.

They will visit Dean Court on Sunday (6th August), with a 7.30pm kick off time.

The game will produce a strong test for the Cherries one week ahead of the new Premier League campaign kicking off at West Brom.

Howe told the Daily Echo...

'...Napoli will be another new experience and is another game we are looking forward to.

"For us now, and with the league we are playing in, we need these types of challenges during pre-season where we are facing quality opposition."
