The probable formations of Empoli-Napoli

The first advance of the 24th day of Serie A is staged at Castellani where Empoli hosts Napoli, with kickoff at 6 p.m. The Tuscans will try to stop the consecutive winning streak of the partenopei, who were also victorious in Frankfurt in the Champions League.

Zanetti cannot count on Akpa Akpro and Bandinelli, out due to disqualification: in their place will be Haas and Grassi. On the flanks, Parisi returns on the left, while on the right Ebuehi is favored over Stojanovic. In attack Caputo is in doubt, if he doesn’t make it ready Piccoli to partner Satriano. Cambiaghi in the pits with a hamstring injury.

Spalletti does not seem intent on making many changes from the eleven that took the field in the Champions League: on the left, Mario Rui may replace Olivera and in attack Politano replaces Lozano. For the rest, everyone is going toward reconfirmation although Osimhen and Kvaratskhelia could also be rested, with Simeone and Elmas pawing the field.

Likely lineups.

EMPOLI (4-3-1-2): Vicario; Ebuehi, Ismajli, Luperto, Parisi; Haas, Marin, Grassi; Baldanzi; Caputo, Satriano. All. Zanetti

NAPOLI (4-3-3): Meret; Di Lorenzo, Rrahmani, Kim, Mario Rui; Anguissa, Lobotka, Zielinski; Politano, Osimhen, Kvaratskhelia. All. Spalletti
