Gonzalo Higuaín makes a surprising start for Napoli in the Europa League.

So is Rafa Benítez trying to win the Europa League trophy or is he keeping attention on the league? This lineup is...interesting. The presence of Gonzalo Higuaín from the beginning says Napoli are going for it, while using Giandomenico Mesto and Miguel Britos in defense says, "You're welcome, Sparta." And then there's Jorginho as an attacking midfielder. Have fun, buddy!

Sparta: Stech; Kaderábek, Brabec, Holek, Costa; Marecek, Hušbauer; Matejovsky, Dockal, Krejci; Lafata

Napoli: Rafael; Mesto, Albiol, Koulibaly, Britos; Gargano, David Lopez; Callejon, Jorginho, Hamsik; Higuain
