Napoli Champions League squad announced

Miguel Britos and Camilo Zúñiga both miss out with injury, but Gonzalo Higuaín is included

The votes are in and by that I mean, Rafa Benítez has checked the boxes by the 21 players that will be available for the next Champions League match. Napoli are set to play Marseille on Tuesday evening, and after the loss to Arsenal, the match in France is pretty much a must-win. The partenopei are even on points with Dortmund, but sit in third thanks to an inferior goal difference.

In good news, Gonzalo Higuaín is included in the squad, despite not being fit enough to start against Roma. In bad news, surgery for Camilo Zúñiga means he's out of the squad. In "I'm not sure how to feel about this" news, Miguel Britos has picked up a shoulder injury that keeps him out as well.

Champions League squad: Rafael, Reina, Colombo, Albiol, Cannavaro, Fernandez, Uvini, Armero, Behrami, Dzemaili, Hamsik, Inler, Maggio, Mesto, Radosevic, Callejon, Mertens, Higuain, Insigne, Pandev, Duvan.

PS -- yes, I'm ignoring what happened Friday night. Can't face watching that match again.
