Napoli manager Rafa Benitez warned Trabzonspor that he holds the record for winning a European game by the highest margin of victory before the the Europa League Round of 32.
Benitez was in charge of the Liverpool side that beat Beşiktaş 8-0 in the 2007-08 Champions League group stages.
“In 2007 I was in charge of the Liverpool side that beat Beşiktaş 8-0 in the Champions League, nobody should forget that I hold this record,” Benitez told Vatan.
Trabzonspor will play their 120th game in Europe on Thursday against the Serie A side.
The Black Sea Storm will only have 14 available players against Napoli on Thursday 19 February.
Trabzonspor are expected to be without Waris, Yatabare and Bosingwa due to injury.
The Black Sea Storm will be without Mehmet Ekici and Kevin Constant due to suspension.
Napoli are currently 3rd in the Serie A. Benitez’s side lost their game on the weekend against Palermo by a 3-1 scoreline.
Trabzonspor are 5th in the Turkish Super League with 33 points in 20 games.
