Napoli-Empoli, probable formations

Sunday opens with the match of the Italian champions Napoli. Garcia s team at the Diego Armando Maradona hosts Empoli, which is currently in second-to-last place in the standings but should not be underestimated considering that it has already surprised Fiorentina away from home less than a month ago. In the decisive lunch match of the 12thª day, Napoli hopes to redeem the disappointing 1-1 draw against Union Berlin in the Champions League, psycho-physical fatigue that could make its effects felt in the second half.

Despite the injury suffered against Union Berlin, Lobotka is expected to take the field regularly flanked by Anguissa and Zielinski. Going forward, the trident consisting of Politano, Raspadori and Kvartskhelia is expected to be used. In defense, however, Olivera is expected to take back the starting spot alongside Mario Rui, who is set to start from the bench. At Empoli, Cacace and Ebuehi should return to starting on the outside, while in attack Cancellieri and Cambiaghi will flank Caputo. Andreazzoli, however, will have to do without Baldanzi because of an ankle injury.

Probable formation Napoli (4-3-3): Meret; Di Lorenzo, Rrahmani, Natan, Olivera; Anguissa, Lobotka, Zielinski; Politano, Raspadori, Kvaratskhelia. All. Garcia.
Probable formation Empoli (4-3-2-1): Berisha; Ebuehi, Walukiewicz, Luperto, Cacace; Marin, Grassi, Maleh; Cancellieri, Cambiaghi; Caputo. All. Andreazzoli.
