Late news

Carlo Ancelotti rotates his XI ahead of the Champions League group stage. The biggest surprise is between the sticks, where Orestis Karnezis gets the nod over David Ospina. Nikola Maksimović will partner Kalidou Koulibaly in the heart of defense, while Mário Rui will start at leftback. The midfield has a very attacking bent, with Marek Hamšík returning to the XI, as does José Callejón.

Stefano Pioli has opted to use Jordan Veretout in the holding role now that the Frenchman’s suspension is finally over. Valentin Eysseric will start ahead of Marko Pjaca and Kevin Mirallas on the wing as the mister prioritizes continuity from a squad that’s done so well in the early going.

Lineups

Napoli (4-3-3): Karnezis; Hysaj, Koulibaly, Albiol, Rui; Zieliński, Diawara, Hamšík; Insigne, Mertens, José Callejón

Fiorentina (4-3-3): Drągowski; Milenković, Pezzella, Vitor Hugo, Biraghi; Benassi, Veretout, Gerson; Chiesa, Simeone, Eysseric
