Late news

Maurizio Sarri hasn’t sprung any big surprises, although this is the Napoli debut for striker Leonardo Pavoletti.

Paulo Sousa has, as usual, deviated from expectations. Nenad Tomovic will fill in for the injured Gonzalo Rodriguez in defense rather than Carlos Salcedo or Sebastien de Maio. Sebastian Cristoforo will make a surprise start in the forward-lying midfield destroyer role that Sousa seems to like him in, probably in an attempt to prevent Napoli from building attacks from the back. Borja Valero will start on the bench.


Napoli (4-3-3): Reina; Hysaj, Albiol, Maksimovic, Strinic; Zielinski, Diawara, Hamsik; Callejon, Pavoletti, Insigne

Fiorentina (3-4-2-1): Tatarusanu; Sanchez, Tomovic, Astori; Chiesa, Badelj, Vecino, Olivera; Bernardeschi, Cristoforo; Kalinic
