Napoli have strong squad to use against Slovan Bratislava

Marek Hamsik is a lock to start, and the rest of Napoli's starting lineup could be strong as well as Rafa Benitez has named a solid group to be available for tomorrow's match.

After being a bit shorthanded last weekend, Napoli have returned to as close to full strength as they can currently muster for their last Europa League group stage match against Slovakian side Slovan Bratislava.

Marek Hamsik is expected to anchor the side against his original club, though it sounds like we could see some rotation around him. Gonzalo Higuain has said that he wants and needs to play in this match, but otherwise we could see starts for Jonathan De Guzman, Gokhan Inler, Walter Gargano, and Miguel Britos as Rafa Benitez looks to keep the side fresh ahead of this weekend's trip to the San Siro against AC Milan.

Giandomenico Mesto and Kalidou Koulibaly both returned to health after missing out on the weekend (Koulibaly was suspended, but wouldn't have played anyways thanks to an ankle knock picked up in training). Lorenzo Insigne (knee), Camilo Zuniga (knee), and Michu (ankle) all continue to miss out with their respective injuries.

The full 20 man squad available for tomorrow's match is listed below:

Goalkeepers: Rafael Cabral, Mariano Andujar, Nikita Contini

Defenders: Christian Maggio, Giandomenico Mesto, henrique Buss, Faouzi Ghoulam, Miguel Britos, Kalidou Koulibaly, Raul Albiol

Midfielders: Jorginho, David Lopez, Gokhan Inler, Walter Gargano, Jonathan De Guzman, Dries Mertens, Marek Hamsik

Forwards: Jose Callejon, Duvan Zapata, Gonzalo Higuain
