Lazio vs. Napoli, 2015 Serie A: Lineups and match thread

Wakey-wakey, Napoli fans! It's time to get up and tune in to the goings-on at the Stadio Olimpico. Now, recently when the team has faced Lazio, it's gone quite well for the partenopei. Last season, Napoli emerged from both league meetings with a 4-2 win, and beat them in the Coppa as well.

But that was then. This is a fancy new Lazio, with a fancy new coach (sorta) and fancy new players like Filip Djordjević, Stefan de Vrij and Felipe Anderson. The good news (for Napoli, at least, I imagine the affected players aren't thrilled) is the later two are out injured, at least.

Even with the injuries, Napoli really need to shake themselves up and get back to winning ways. A loss in Rome puts them four points out of third -- the bare minimum of what's expected from this side. Forza Napoli Sempre!


Lazio: Berisha, Basta, Cana, Radu, Cavanda, Biglia, Ledesma, Parolo, Candreva, Djordjevic, Keita

Napoli: Rafael; Maggio, Albiol, Koulibaly, Strinic; Gargano, David Lopez; Callejon, de Guzman, Mertens; Higuain
