Late news

Napoli boss Luciano Spalletti will be thrilled that Victor Osimhen is fit to start, although the Nigerian’s fitness may be a concern. Young Alessandro Zanoli draws the start at rightback by default with Giovanni Di Lorenzo and Kévin Malcuit injured. The rest of the side is as expected, with Matteo Politano getting the nod ahead of Chucky Lozano, although this could end up looking more like a 4-3-3 than a 4-2-3-1 depending on how Piotr Zielińsky interprets his role.

Fiorentina mister Vincenzo Italiano has picked the same backline for the third straight game, which feels like a record; Álvaro Odriozola’s injury means this is the likeliest setup. Sofyan Amrabat replaces the suspended Lucas Torreira in the middle, with Alfred Duncan joining him to provide some extra steel. Up front, Arthur Cabral gets a chance to show his stuff, flanked by Riccardo Saponara and Nicolás González.

Lineups

Napoli (4-2-3-1): Ospina; Zanoli, Rrahmani, Koulibaly, Rui; Lobotka, Ruiz; Politano, Zielińsky, Insigne; Osimhen

Fiorentina (4-3-3): Terracciano; Venuti, Milenković, Igor, Biraghi; Castrovilli, Amrabat, Duncan; González, Cabral, Saponara
