Napoli vs. Dortmund: Champions League Lineups!

Dino Panato

The lineups for the Group F clash between Napoli and Dortmund are about what you might expect. It'll be Marek Hamsik taking the armband tonight, however, as Paolo Cannavaro has been dropped for Miguel Britos.

The day we've been waiting for for five long months has finally arrived. Now, hold on to your hats, try to keep your lunch down and find a big cushion to hide behind -- it's likely going to be a long 90+ minutes.

That's not to say I think Napoli is going to go down in a fire of blue sparks. Rafa Benitez has done well to get this team to gel quickly, and he's certainly put out about as strong of a lineup as could be expected. The only question is whether Miguel Britos deserves the start over Paolo Cannavaro, but hey, perhaps Rafa simply realizes that when Marek Hamsik puts on the armband, magical things start to happen.

Here are your lineups...feel free to stick around and chat during the match. And Forza Napoli!

Napoli Starting XI: Reina; Maggio, Albiol, Britos, Zuniga; Inler, Behrami; Callejón, Hamsik, Insigne; Higuain

Borussia Dortmund Starting XI: Weidenfeller - Großkreutz, Subotic, Hummels, Schmelzer - Bender, Sahin - Blaszczykowski, Mkhitaryan, Reus - Lewandowski
