Competition: Serie A Date: Friday 2nd December 2016 Venue: Stadio San Paolo Kick-Off: 19:45 GMT
Napoli remain without long-term absentee Arkadiusz Milik and Dries Mertens is also unavailable for the hosts through suspension.
Maurizio Sarri also has plenty to think about heading into the game, with half a mind on next week’s crucial final Champions League group stage match.
Inter Milan without injured trio Gary Medel, Rodrigo Palacio and Davide Santon.
Stefano Pioli may select the same XI that beat Fiorentina 4-2 on Monday but midfield changes could also occur, with Geoffrey Kondogbia and Ever Banega being replaced by Joao Mario and Felipe Melo.
Napoli slipped to seventh after failing to beat Sassuolo last weekend, with Maurizio Sarri’s side far from their best, but the fact they remain just four points behind second position means you shouldn’t take too much from their current position.
The same cannot be said for Inter Milan, who sit eighth having lost five games already this season. Eight points behind the top-two, and four behind tomorrow’s opponents, another defeat could prove disastrous for any slim chance remaining for Inter to secure a European spot.
With both sides lacking some form, Napoli’s home advantage could be crucial in the match and their brilliant record at the Stadio San Paolo should at least ensure the Naples outfit are not defeated in this clash.
