Napoli and Benfica are about to go head to head for Champions League glory, and it’s going to be a nail-biting affair for Napoli fans as Benfica are their toughest rivals in the group — and their recent record against Portuguese teams isn’t great.
With that in mind, Maurizio Sarri has named his primary starting lineup, with Arkadiusz Milik, Dries Mertens, Allan, and Elseid Hysaj all returning to the lineup after resting at the weekend. With Napoli being able to bring a full strength team against a Benfica squad struggling a bit with injuries, that could prove to be a huge factor in this match.
Now listen to the Stadio San Paolo. She is full, she is rocking, and she is humming with energy and excitement. This could be one hell of a day, folks.
Napoli: Reina; Hysaj, Koulibaly, Albiol, Ghoulam; Allan, Jorginho, Hamsik; Callejon, Milik, Mertens
Benfica: Julio Cesar; Semedo, Lindelöf, Lisandro Lopez, Grimaldo; Fejsa, Andre Almeida, Andre Horta, Pizzi, Carrillo; Mitroglou
