The first leg of the Coppa Italia semi-final is here, and it's time for Napoli to get to work on earning a spot in their second final in a row.

To do that, they'll have to take on a pretty strong Lazio attack with a side that is seeing much more rotation than expected. In fact, there's some pretty major concerns with this squad, as there's shocking little in the way of good creativity in this squad, something that will be needed to break Lazio down.

With Jonathan De Guzman at the tip of midfield in the place of Marek Hamsik, a good balancing move would have been to bring in Jorginho to the midfield pivot, giving him a chance to use his quality passing to help unlock Lazio's defense. Without him, De Guzman has never really shown his creative side with Napoli, consistently letting the squad down when asked to be the creative focus of the side. So. Yeah. This might not be fun.

Oh, and Napoli have to deal with Antonio Candreva, Miroslav Klose, and Felipe Anderson without Kalidou Koulibaly in the lineup. Have fun with that!

Lazio: Berisha; Basta, de Vrij, Mauricio, Radu; Cataldi, Biglia, Parolo; Candreva, Klose, Felipe

Napoli: Andujar; Mesto, Albiol, Britos, Ghoulam; Inler, David Lopez; Mertens, De Guzman, Gabbiadini; Higuain
