Napoli v. Chievo: Lineups And Match Thread

Marek Hamsik returns to the starting XI, and all is right with the world.

The lineups are in for today's slugfest against Chievo, and it features a return to the starting XI for everybody's favorite Slokavian, Marek Hamsik. Despite speculation that Dries Mertens was due a rest, the Belgian starts while Lorenzo Insigne rides the pine again, which... huh. OK. At least Goran Pandev isn't starting?

Jorginho isn't starting, but will have the opportunity to make his debut from the bench, which will be an exciting thing to keep an eye out for as he has the ability to change the makeup of Napoli's play on the pitch. Given that, it'd be surprising not to see him on the pitch at some point today.

The match will be aired on Sky Supercalcio HD in Italy, and beIn Sports in the US. Other viewing options are listed here for those of you in other countries.
