Inter Milan may not quite be the power that they once were in Serie A, but in the Coppa Italia they represent a fairly large hurdle to get over. Such is the task ahead of Napoli today as they prepare to face Inter in the quarter final round of their Coppa title defense.

Rafa Benitez is using the occasion to experiment a bit, throwing Kalidou Koulibaly out at right back for the first time. It's perhaps an interesting experiment to think on given Koulibaly's athleticism and willingness to run with the ball, but against Inter Milan in an elimination match, with him facing Xherdan Shaqiri on the wing and thus forcing Miguel Britos to try and contain Mauro Icardi, maybe the timing isn't right.

Napoli: Andujar; Koulibaly, Albiol, Britos, Strinic; Gargano, David Lopez; Callejon, Hamsik, De Guzman; Higuain

Inter: Carrizo; Nagatomo, Ranocchia, Juan Jesus, Santon; Medel, Brozovic, Hernanes; Shaqiri; Puscas, Icardi
