CAG vs NAP Team News:


  • Diego Farrias and Fabio Pisacane are ruled out for this game
  • Marco Sau is expected to feature in this match for the home team


  • Napoli is expected to repeat the same squad because they have been winning all their league games so not much rotation is expected from them.
  • Marek Hamsik is expected to start the game over Piotr Zielinski

CAG vs NAP Probable XI:


Cragno (GK), Ceppitelli, Castan, Andreolli, Farago, Barella, Ionita, Padoin, Pedro, Pavoletti, Sau


Reina (GK), Hysaj, Albiol, Koulibaly, Rui, Hamsik, Jorginho, Allan, Callejon, Mertens, Insigne

Key players:


Castan Pavoletti


Insigne, Callejon, Koulibaly

Expected Winner:

Cagliari lost to Chievo last time out and were caught in the table by the latter. Now the two clubs are tied on 25 points and are looking over their shoulder with some fear.

Napoli put up a bigger fight than expected in Leipzig, but the disastrous first leg loss could not be fixed. They will now focus entirely on the league, so expect to see 11 men on a mission.

Dropping points here would be bad for morale, since it could make the Europa League sacrifice look pointless. Victory is the only option for Napoli, especially as Juventus do not have an easy game this weekend.

I always hate talking about myself because it feels weird to talk about myself honestly. Ever think that it's weird? No? Just me? My bad. Always hungry, always sleepy and in between always writing. Hope you won't mind!
