Bizarre lineups abound today, as both sides put out squads bizarrely heavy on wingers and wide forwards as Napoli and Dynamo Moscow prepare to face off in the Europa League round of 16.

Marek Hamsik is riding the bench as Napoli go with Manolo Gabbiadini, Dries Mertens, and an out-of-form Jose Callejon in attacking midfield, with the trio supporting Gonzalo Higuain up top. They'll be backed up by David Lopez and Jorginho in midfield as Napoli push hard and fast for an early goal or two in order to try and secure the tie early if at all possible.

Ostensibly, you could say that Napoli are running with three wingers in this match. That would seem far more strange if Dynamo weren't countering that with four in a very difficult to read formation. What's the phrase all the "cool kids" were using a couple years ago? You only live once? That would seem to apply here.

Dynamo Moscow: Gabulov; Kozlov, Samba, Hubocan, Buttner; Vainqueur, Dzsudzsak; Valbuena, Kokorin, Zhirkov; Kuranyi

Napoli: Andujar; Maggio, Albiol, Britos, Ghoulam; Jorginho, Lopez; Callejon, Gabbiadini, Mertens; Higuain
