Napoli-Eintracht Frankfurt, the probable formations

Napoli hosts Eintracht Frankfurt on Wednesday night at the Diego Armando Maradona in the return match of the Champions League round of 16. Kickoff set for 9 p.m. The Azzurri, on the strength of their 2-0 win in Germany, are one foot in the quarterfinals. The Germans will attempt the feat of managing to overturn the first leg result.

Spalletti recovers Meret and Lozano: the Azzurri goalkeeper will go between the posts, while the Mexican outfielder should get the better of Politano to occupy the right flank of the offensive trident, completed by Osimhen and Kvaratskhelia. Ballot on the left lane between Mario Rui and Olivera, with the Portuguese favored.

Glasner must forgo Kolo Muani, out through disqualification: he will be replaced by Borré, with Gotze and Kamada in support in the three-quarter, given Lindstrom’s injury. On the right flank Buta ahead of Knauff, with Max on the opposite flank.

Likely lineups.

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

EINTRACHT FRANKFURT (3-4-2-1): Trapp; Tuta, Ndicka, Hasebe; Buta, Jakic, Rode, Max; Kamada, Gotze; Borré. All. Glasner.
