Napoli to unleash the hounds against Torino

Napoli's squad is as fit and healthy as can be expected, letting them deploy a strong squad in the league.

With the exception of one idiotic suspension, Napoli's squad is at about as full a strength as it can muster right now, which is good news as they prepare to face a Torino team that's been very good of late.

After the squad was heavily rotated in the Europa League on Thursday, Rafa Benitez will be about to put out a very strong lineup, with a first-choice defense and Gonzalo Higuain backed by Marek Hamsik up top. We'll likely see Ivan Strinic after Faouzi Ghoulam started the last three matches and picked up a minor knock on Thursday, and the biggest remaining question is who starts in goal.

Dries Mertens is suspended thanks to his red card against Sassuolo, and each of Lorenzo Insigne, Camilo Zuniga, and Michu remain out with their injuries. The full 21 man squad available for the match is listed below.

Goalkeepers: Rafael Cabral, Mariano Andujar, Roberto Colombo

Defenders: Christian Maggio, Giandomenico Mesto, Faouzi Ghoulam, Ivan Strinic, Raul Albiol, Kalidou Koulibaly, Miguel Britos, Henrique

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

Forwards: Jose Callejon, Manolo Gabbiadini, Gonzalo Higuain, Duvan Zapata
