Livorno vs. Napoli: Lineups + Match Talk

Giuseppe Bellini

Are we in for another unpleasant surprise against a relegation-battling side? Or will Napoli manage to get the job done against Livorno without causing too much stress?

Previewing the match

Unfortunately, Goran Pandev will lead the line this afternoon, thanks to Gonzalo Higuaín getting a rather intelligent booking last weekend. FortunatelyMarek Hamšík starts, so perhaps we won't need to dread the Pandev quite so much. In general, it's pretty much the lineup that was expected.

Thoughts? Will the side be tired after a tough match against Swansea, or will Napoli look like a side prepared to challenge for the top...for once?

Livorno: Bardi; Ceccherini, Emerson, Coda; Mbaye, Benassi, Duncan, Greco, Mesbah; Emeghara, Paulinho

Napoli: Reina; Maggio, Fernandez, Britos, Ghoulam; Inler, Jorginho; Mertens, Hamsik, Callejòn; Pandev
